Kathy Griffin is getting roasted by Johnny Depp fans for mocking his appearance following his big win in the defamation case against Amber Heard.
The 61-year-old comedian offered her support to Amber Heard ahead of the televised trial in which the jury found the actress guilty of all three counts of defamation against her ex-husband.
Griffin reacted to the verdict and took digs at Johnny Depp’s looks and substance abuse issues.
Kathy Griffin says Johnny Depp looks like Donald Trump
Kathy Griffin appears on Brian Karen’s Just Ask the Question podcast to give her reaction to the Depp vs. Heard defamation trial.
The comedian discloses being “friends” with the Aquaman actress before adding, “I completely believe [Amber Heard]” in regard to her claims about being abused by her ex-husband.
According to Newsweek, Griffin went on to mock Johnny Depp’s looks, stating that the “gross” actor is no longer a heartthrob.
“These Johnny Depp stans that are talking about this trial and yet they refuse to show pictures of what he looks like now, which is a big orange fat bloated boozebag,” she said. She continued:
“He looks like Donald Trump with a ponytail. And so they keep sticking up for him and being like, ‘Amber is taking down Johnny! He’s so gorgeous and dreamy!’ I’m like, okay, he talks like Kanye when Kanye had his jaw wired. He has a fake accent like when Madonna turned British. So, you know, who are we kidding here?”
Griffin, in a similar fashion to Heard’s attorney, blamed social media activity for playing a role in the jury’s verdict.
