During his Ego Death tour in London, comedian Chris Rock mocked actress Amber Heard amid her ongoing libel case with her ex-husband, actor Johnny Depp. Chris addressed his audience throughout his performance and told them to “believe in all women except Amber Heard.” The 57-year-old comedian joked about slapping actor Will Smith at the 94th Academy Awards 2022 on March 27 during a stand-up show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Thursday.
Amber is now involved in a legal dispute with Johnny Depp, who accused her of defamation. Amber wrote an op-ed in 2018 on surviving domestic violence, but she didn’t address it by name. In Fairfax, Virginia, Amber defends herself in a $50 million libel lawsuit.
Chris said: “Believe all women, believe all women… except Amber Heard… What the hell is she up to?
Amber Heard broke down in tears on the witness stand Thursday while testifying in her ex-husband Johnny Depp’s libel trial, alleging that he sexually assaulted her with a bottle of liquor during a fight in Australia, shortly after the couple will be married. Recounting the ordeal, the Aquaman actress said the fight in Australia during the filming of the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie in March 2015 was caused by Depp’s jealousy and concern about his drug use, reported Variety.

She said that she remembered thinking, “Please, God, I hope it’s not broken.”
