Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard's defamation trial resumed on Monday, May 16, after more than a week of hiatus and continued with the actress' testimony.
In the trial, Heard refuted the claims of defecating on Depp's side of the bed and said it was the feces were from the dogs. She rejected Depp's chauffeur Starling Jenkins' statement, who previously insinuated that the 36-year-old star had pranked the 58-year-old actor.
Heard also testified about her fight with Depp on her 30th birthday (April 21, 2016). The actress claimed that Depp physically assaulted her, forced her onto a bed, and allegedly grabbed her pubic area.
The Aquaman star claimed that Depp taunted her and said:
"Look who is so tough. Want to be tough like a man now?"
Heard made the same claims during Depp's 2020 libel lawsuit against The Sun.
Netizens call out Amber Heard for blaming Johnny Depp's dogs for the infamous defecation incident
Numerous supporters of Depp took to Twitter to scrutinize Heard's claims that the dogs had defecated on the bed. In the trial, she said that one of the dogs had bowel issues after reportedly ingesting Depp's marijuana.
One user further called out this allegation and claimed that dogs would vomit upon eating weed products.
Meanwhile, a legion of individuals also questioned the actress' claims and mocked such allegations' logic.
Claims against Amber Heard over defecation on Depp's bed
Previously, Johnny Depp had claimed that Amber Heard defecated on his side of the bed at their Los Angeles penthouse apartment. The actor also revealed on April 20 that Heard had "tried to blame it on the dogs."
At the time, Depp stated:
"They're Teacup Yorkies. They weigh about 4 pounds each. The photograph that I saw — I lived with those dogs for many years. It was not the dogs... I didn't feel like I deserved that kind of treatment."
Meanwhile, the Pirates of the Caribbean star's long-term driver and security guard Starling Jenkins testified about the incident late last month. Jenkins, who appeared via a video feed, recalled his drive accompanying the actress to Coachella in 2016. During their drive, he claimed that Heard had confided in him about the "practical joke."
Johnny Depp's employee claimed that he had a conversation with Amber Heard, where she disclosed "the surprise she left in the boss's bed." Jenkins later added that the surprise was the feces on Depp's bed. He also alleged that the actress had referred to the incident as "a horrible practical joke gone wrong."
Amber Heard's rebuttal to the claims
On Monday, Heard told the jury:
"I don't think that was funny. I don't know what grown woman does (that)...I was also not in a pranking mood."
She added that her "life was falling apart at the time" and cited that she was assaulted by Depp, which did not make it "a jovial time."
