Chris Rock took aim at the ongoing defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard during the London leg of his ongoing stand-up tour.
The comedian has angered some for the joke, which took lightly Depp’s accusation that Heard defecated on her bed (a claim Heard denies).
Corresponding LadBibleRock told the audience last Thursday (May 12), “Believe all women, believe all women … except Amber Heard. What the hell is she doing? She fucks in his bed! She’s fine, but she’s not fucking fine.
“She fucks in his bed. Once you shit in someone’s bed, everything is your fault.
“She fucks in his bed. What the hell is going on? Wow. And after that they had a relationship. It must be amazing p***y… I’ve been with some crazy b*****s but damn it.”
The Independent has contacted Rock representatives for confirmation.
Rock, who was famously beaten by Will Smith at the Oscars earlier this year, was criticized for using a feminist slogan to insult Heard.
One person wrote: “I never liked Chris Rock always thought he was overrated and he sucks for attacking Amber Heard.”
“Chris Rock wasn’t laughing when Will Smith attacked him but it’s okay to laugh and joke about a female victim of domestic violence when the perpetrator is a Hollywood actor,” tweeted another.
“So the man who was hit by #WillSmith is now dragging the woman who was hit by #JohnnyDepp? I was beginning to think the only thing the Fresh Prince had done wrong was not taking him outside. #IStandWithAmberHeard,” wrote another.
Rock also addressed the Oscars’ slap in the face during his British leg ego death tour and reportedly told the crowd, “I’m fine, in case anyone was wondering. I’ve regained most of my hearing and I’m trying to put on a decent show.”
After the altercation in March, Smith apologized and resigned from the academy on April 1.
On April 8, the Academy voted to bar Smith from Academy Awards for the next 10 years.
