During a comedy show in London on Thursday, Chris Rock offered his take on Johnny Depp’s ongoing defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The comedian touched upon the Oscars slap controversy briefly, but according to LADBible he really went in on Heard following some of the revelations in the trial. The subject came up as the comedian reflected on there being “new rules” when it comes to sleeping with other people. “Even if we start fucking, you want that shit rough, you got to ask for it,” he reportedly said during his routine.
After making the comment, he stressed that it’s important to “believe all women” before revealing his exception. “Believe all women… except Amber Heard,” said the comedian. “What the fuck is she on? She shit in his bed! She’s fine, but she’s not shitting fine. … She shit in his bed. Once you shit in someone’s bed you just guilty of everything. … What the fuck is going on there? And they had a relationship after that. It must be amazing pussy. … I’ve been with some crazy bitches but goddamnit.”
While it was previously alleged that Amber Heard defecated in the couple’s bed during an argument, the allegation gained renewed interest when it came up during Depp’s defamation trial. As reported by People last month, Depp recalled that he was “shown a picture of” the bed following the incident.
"I had gone to Mr. [security guard Sean] Bett and said, 'She's at Coachella. I think it's a good time to go downtown so that I can get some of my things and get them out of there,' especially things that were precious to me," said Depp in court. "Then he showed me a photograph on his telephone of … it was a photograph of our bed, and on my side of the bed, was human fecal matter. ... It was so outside. It was so bizarre and so grotesque that I could only laugh. So I did not go down there that day."
Depp testified that Heard “tried to blame” the state of the bed “on the dogs,” referring to his teacup Yorkies. Heard later testified that the feces was “a horrible practical joke gone wrong.”
Elsewhere in his comedy set on Thursday, Rock spoke about when Dave Chappelle was attacked onstage during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl.
"Everyone's a victim these days ... There are real victims in the world, they deserve to be heard, they deserve our love and compassion," said Rock. "But if everybody claims to be a victim, then no one hears the real victims. ... We say the world is addicted to opioids, no... the world is not addicted to opioids. The number one addiction in the world is attention. One of the easiest ways to get attention is to be infamous, to try to stab Dave Chappelle on stage. Or you can be a victim."
