The Most Surreal Moments From The Depp V. Heard Trial, Ranked

List Rules

Vote up the most WTF moments from the time Edward Scissorhands sued Queen Mera.

In February 2019, Johnny Depp sued ex-wife Amber Heard for defamation over a 2018 op-ed article Heard had written for The Washington Post in which she claimed to have survived domestic violence. The defamation trial began on April 11, 2022 in Fairfax County, Virginia. 

Since the entire trial is being recorded, it is easy for the public to watch, analyze, and turn clips into viral TikToks. And although claims of abuse should never be taken lightly, there are plenty of very surreal moments in this case that have turned it into one of the strangest live events we've ever witnessed.
