The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial is the drama we didn't know we needed in 2022.

The former husband and wife split in 2016 after an extremely toxic and rocky marriage. Two years later, Amber penned an opinion piece for The Washington Post about her experience with domestic violence. While her piece didn't mention Johnny by name, it was widely taken to be about him. Thus, he sued her for defamation.

On June 1, the jury found Amber and Johnny both liable for defamation in their lawsuits against each other. However, Johnny was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and five million dollars in punitive damages. Meanwhile, Amber was awarded two million dollars in compensatory damages with zero dollars for punitive damages.

If you followed the trial from the start, it's no secret that this case was full of surprises. Leave it to two actors to have one of the most dramatic cases of all time — and leave it to the Internet to craft some memes in response to it. We've rounded up some below.

She was questioned over whether or not she asked her husband to bring the Aquaman actress baked goods on the day of her evaluation. Dr. Curry explained that she had asked her husband "to pick up the muffins for me" from a local bakery for the office as she was running late that day; the muffins were not specifically for Amber.

Naturally, folks began comparing it to the "Muffin Man" interrogation scene in Shrek.
