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 blatantly obvious that it was about him. Naturally, he sued her for defamation.
Now, four years later, the trial has gone to court and boy is it juicy. Leave it to two actors to have one of the most epic and dramatic cases of all time — and leave it to the Internet to craft some hilarious memes in response to it. We've rounded up our faves below!
As we've learned, Johnny and Amber's relationship was by no means normal. After an explosive fight one night during their marriage, poop was found in their shared bed. When Johnny asked Amber about it, she blamed it on her dogs.
"I think I would remember seeing Mr. Depp's penis."
Not exactly a meme, but most definitely a hilarious moment from the trial. Here's what transpired when Malcolm Connelly, Johnny's bodyguard, was put on the stand.
Even Johnny is laughing at all this talk about his private part.
Caught in the act?
Some people have pointed out the juxtaposition of Amber's emotions during the trial and after.
"Do you know the Muffin man?"
When real life imitates Shrek.
During the trial, muffins became a consistent part of the line of questioning when Dr. Shannon Curry, a clinical and forensic psychologist hired by Johnny's legal team to evaluate Amber, took the stand.
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.
You didn't think we were only going to show you one poop meme, right?
Given Amber's alleged actions, she has been nicknamed Amber Turd. Conveniently, "turd" just happens to rhyme with her last name, "Heard."
We can't forget about the dog!
"Lmao the dog is looking at her like she did it," wrote one Twitter user in this thread.
Johnny Depp's finger injury.
During the trial, Johnny testified that Amber had become enraged when he had started drinking in Australia during the filming of one of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. He claims she threw a vodka bottle at him, which severed the top of his finger.
Fake it until you make it?
"Don't you go bringing my darling Sims into this!" someone tweeted in this thread.
We can't unsee this.
That's certainly an interesting take!
Johnny Depp's fans have his back.
Since the case began, the hashtag #JusticeforJohnnyDepp has been seen all across social media.
It's only fair?
After Amber made domestic violence claims against Johnny, Disney cut Johnny from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. But now, as the trial is unfolding, many of his fans believe Disney owes Johnny an apology. Meanwhile, rumors say that Warner Bros. has been reconsidering Amber's role in Aquaman 2.
A Change.org petition to have Amber axed from the sequel has already garnered more than three million signatures.
Good one, Amber!
This iconic scene from The Office just got the alleged Amber Heard treatment.
Amber treats her poo like family...?
That seems like a loving stare.
Scooby-Doo's Fred Jones is on the case!
Stinky twist on a great movie.
"Well, ain't that some s--t?" commented one Instagram user under this pic.
We would watch this!
'The Slap' is out, #MePoo is in.
Somewhere Will Smith is thanking Amber for making the memes about his public slip-up go away quicker.
The trial has been going on for so long that we almost forgot how it all started.
We saw that!
Some say that Amber seems to break into and out of character real quick. We asked a body language expert to weigh in on Amber's stature and gestures during the trial.
Johnny Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez has entered the chat.
Johnny's lawyer Camille Vasquez commandeered his team's cross-examination of Amber, and Camille is definitely not one to mess with.
Some are saying that Amber copied Johnny's style during the trial, but did she also borrow from Dr. Evil?
After Amber's cross-examination, many folks were beginning to see her in a different light and were reminded of a Disney classic.
OK, play nice everyone! The trial is still going on and the verdict is unknown. Amber will be fine no matter what the outcome is.
There is currently some wild speculation that Amber may have done coke on the stand. Is it true? Only Amber knows, but in the meantime, here's a rhyme about it.
A look at Amber's makeup palette.
During the trial, Amber discussed the makeup palette that she used to cover up the bruises allegedly inflicted upon her by her ex-husband. She referred to it as a "bruise kit," and a clip of it went viral.
