After making a shocking statement about Amber Heard on stage this week, singer and Euphoria star Dominic Fike has received a lot of negative reaction.
Fans have dubbed Euphoria actor and musician Dominic Fike a “weirdo” for trivialising the alleged abuse mentioned during the ongoing defamation lawsuit between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp.
During a concert at Northwestern University in Chicago last week, Fike, 26, alluded to the trial, telling the youthful audience that he’s fantasised about Heard busting him up.
“I’m gonna be real with y’all. I actually think Amber Heard is hot … But I’ve been having these visions of her [where] she’s beating me up. I think it’s hot,” he said.
As Dominic made these comments, audience members can be overheard saying “Ooh” and booing him.
Who Is Dominic Fike?
Fike portrays Elliot in the hit HBO drama Euphoria, which he joined in the third season. Hunter Schafer, a model and trans activist, has been romantically linked to the musician-turned-actor.
Dominic’s remarks against Amber came amid her protracted defamation battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp, which has been widely reported.
In 2019, Johnny filed a lawsuit against Amber after she wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post in which she alluded to previous charges she had made against him and claimed she had become “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”
Johnny reacted with a $50 million claim, despite the fact that Amber did not name Johnny or specify any of the claimed abuse in the piece. Heard has countersued, asking for $US100 million ($A134m) and claims she suffered “rampant physical violence and abuse” at his hands but was herself defamed when claims were made that she had manufactured the allegations.
The case is highly publicized, with millions of viewers following it on the internet. It was supposed to end on May 19, 2022, but was postponed due to unavoidable circumstances. The jury has now decided to share their verdict on May 27, 2022.
