“Saturday Night Live” got full of bathroom humor over the weekend, airing the metaphorical (and potentially literal) dirty laundry of Amber Heard’s alleged defecation in the bed incident highlighted during the ex-husband Johnny Depp’s $50 million libel lawsuit against her.
The cold open began with Nicole Wallace (Kate McKinnon) in a fake MSNBC segment in which she admits that with a war in Europe and a shortage of infant formula, the lawsuit isn’t the most “news.” relevant,” but “Isn’t it nice to have a story that we all collectively call to watch and say, ‘Ugh, glad it’s not me.’
The sketch then moves to the courtroom where Depp’s attorney (Aidy Bryant) claims to have discovered surveillance footage of the ex-couple’s household staff finding Heard’s feces in their bed.
Heard’s attorney (Heidi Gardner) opposes the release of the tapes, saying the footage still wouldn’t prove Heard was the one who pooped in the bed.
“True, but I’m going to allow it,” Judge Penny Azcarte (Cecily Strong) overruled, “because it looks like fun and this trial is for fun.”
Bryant then plays the footage, which shows a man Depp (Kyle Mooney) says is his property manager (Kenan Thompson) entering the bedroom while he’s on the phone.

“Yeah, man, you know she cut off that joker’s finger, right?” Thompson says into the phone in the fake footage. “Wait a second,” he said to the person on the other end, sniffling. “Shit, it smells like boo boo in here. It’s coming from this bed.”
He lifts the sheets. ” Oh no ! It’s a boo! »
Bryant interrupts the video and triumphantly crosses the courtroom. “There you go. They found the dookie.”
Strong overruled another objection from Heard’s attorney, saying she would like to continue watching the footage, “because it’s funny.”
As the footage continues, Thompson calls another staff member (Ego Nwodim) who skeptically asks Thompson why Heard “boo boo in his own bed?”

“Well, remember she already cut off the boy’s finger,” Thompson replied. “And my dad always told me that if a girl cut your finger, she’d boo in your bed.”
As Mooney’s Depp smiles and stifles a smile as he takes the stand, the judge disapprovingly asks him if he “finds this trial fun?”
“A little, yes,” he replies.
“Me too,” she replies, toasting him with a glass of wine. “You are bad, Captain Jack.”
After seeing two other staff members discover the fecal matter on the video, Strong’s Azcarte says she made up her mind at trial.

She said: “On the one hand, I believe in Mr. Depp’s story, but on the other hand, your constant smirk lets me know that this is not the first woman you have made like this. so she pooped in your bed.”
Selena Gomez hosted the episode and Post Malone was the musical guest.
In fact, Heard’s infamous 2016 alleged defecation incident came to light in court on April 28, when Depp’s former executive driver and security guard Starling Jenkins III testified that the actress told her about the “surprise” she left in Depp’s bed following a fight between the ex-couple when they were together. Jenkins clarified that the “surprise” was the defecation.
“On my side of the bed, there was human feces,” he recalls. “I laughed. It was so out there, it was so weird and so grotesque that I could only laugh.”

Depp testified that Heard tried to blame the state of the bed on his Yorkies teacup.
“I lived with these dogs for many years,” Depp said. “It’s not from a dog. It just isn’t.”
