‘Believe all women except Amber Heard’: Chris Rock mocks Heard in defence of Johnny Depp

On 12 May 2022, comedian Chris Rock—who recently made headlines for being on the receiving end of Will Smith’s shockingly violent reaction to Rock’s alopecia joke—took to the stage in London to kick off the UK arm of his Ego Death tour. Though many fans wondered if he’d bring up the now-infamous Oscars slap, Rock instead turned his attention to Amber Heard and the allegation that she defecated on Johnny Depp’s bed.

After joking about cancel culture, Rock discussed all of the ‘new rules’ when it comes to sex, stating: “Even if we start f*cking, you want that sh*t rough, you got to ask for it.” He then continued, “Believe all women, believe all women… Except Amber Heard. What the f*ck is she on? She sh*t in his bed! She’s fine but she’s not sh*tting fine.”

“Once you sh*t in someone’s bed, you just guilty of everything. […] And they had a relationship after that. It must be amazing p*ssy… I’ve been with some crazy b*tches but goddammit,” the comedian concluded.

As stated by LADbible, the crowd reacted positively to the callout—erupting into laughter as Rock emphasised one of the more unusual moments of Depp’s testimony. But as the Depp versus Heard trial continues, Rock is certainly not the only one to gain attention for picking a side.

Joe Rogan condemned the Aquaman actress on his highly popular (and controversial) podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, saying she is a “crazy lady” and that her allegations are “not true.”

“I’m watching this trial, and, like, it’s a cautionary tale about believing in bullsh*t, forming a narrative in your head like, ‘We’re rebels together’,” he said to his millions of listeners. “People that are just manipulative and full of sh*t like that? Doug Stanhope knows her. Stanhope’s buddies with Johnny Depp. He wrote something… like a little essay about how full of sh*t she is, and she threatened to sue him, and I think he had to wind up taking it down,” Rogan concluded.

Though more subtly than Rogan, Jennifer Anniston also recently showed her support to Depp by following him on Instagram just after the trial had already started. Shortly after, the Pirates of the Caribbean star returned the gesture.

When it comes to Heard, not as many celebrities have come to her defence. Numbers put aside, however, legendary radio host Howard Stern definitely made some noise when he blasted Depp for his “overacting” at the trial on his SiriusXM show in late April. “The reason he wanted that on—he wanted it televised [because] that’s what narcissists do,” Stern stated.

“I think Johnny Depp is a huge narcissist and what I mean by that is—he figured, ‘I’ll put this on TV and because I’m so persuasive and because I’m so smart, I’m such a wonderful guy’. If he isn’t acting—I mean, he’s so overacting because he’s writing his own material as he goes along. You know, I gotta tell you, he’s wrong. He shouldn’t be putting this on TV in any shape.”

However, it seems that having Stern’s clear support blasted on air was not enough to convince the majority of the public as more than 4 million people have now signed the petition calling for Heard’s removal from the upcoming Aquaman sequel.

The Change.org petition was originally created after Depp announced that he was asked by Warner Bros to resign from the role of Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

Meanwhile, another petition—addressed to Disney this time—pleading the mass media giant to bring back Depp’s role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise’s sixth instalment is also gaining traction as we speak.

In more recent news concerning the ongoing trial, Heard’s legal team has been barred from presenting the actress’ leaked bloody lip photo as evidence because it wasn’t filed in time. Heard herself stated under oath that the blow that Depp would allegedly have given her happened during an argument in 2012.

The trial, which began on 11 April 2022, went on a weeklong hiatus. Proceedings are resuming today, Monday 16 May, with closing arguments scheduled for 27 May.
