Celebrities take sides in Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial
Chris Rock took the stage during the UK leg of his “Ego Death” world tour on May 12 and reportedly discussed Depp’s allegations that Heard left poop on his bed.
According to British digital publisher LADBible, the comic told the crowd, “Believe all women, believe all women … except Amber Heard …”
Ireland Baldwin called Heard a “terrible person” on an Instagram Story amid the trial. “The thing is, I know women who are exactly like this,” Alec Baldwin’s oldest child said in late April.
“They are manipulative and cold and they use their very womanhood to play victim and turn the world against the man because we live in a society where it’s cool to say men are all the worst and blah blah f–kity blah.”
Joe Rogan condemned Heard on his popular 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 bulls–t, forming a narrative in your head like, ‘We’re rebels together,’” he said to his millions of listeners.
Bill Burr admitted in early May that he hasn’t necessarily seen the Depp-Heard trial because he’s “too big a Johnny Depp fan” to watch it, but said he thinks people should apologize to the “Edward Scissorhands” star if Heard loses.
“From what I’ve seen, the guy is f—ing destroying,” the comedian, 52, said on the “Monday Morning Podcast,” according to Mediate.
Aniston’s support of Depp has been more subtle than others’, taking to social media to quietly take his side.
According to RadarOnline, the “Friends” star, 53, started following Depp after the trial had already started, and the “Black Mass” star reportedly returned the gesture recently.
Not as many celebrities have come to Heard’s defense, but Howard Stern did not hold back in blasting Depp for his “overacting” at the trial.
“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.’”
Ellen Barkin is set to show her support for Heard where it matters most — in court.The “Big Easy” actress, 68, will take the stand to testify on behalf of Heard because she previously alleged that Depp was abusive to her when they dated.
Barkin also issued a statement in Depp’s trial against The Sun in 2020, claiming the actor had thrown a bottle of wine across a hotel room once and gotten jealous and angry.
