Doja Cat has come under fire after she recreated a viral moment from the testimony that Amber Heard gave during Johnny Depp’s long-running defamation case.
In a since-deleted TikTok, the “Woman” singer told fans that her puppy had stood on a bee over the weekend.

While relaying the story, Doja Cat appeared to wince just like Heard did when she spoke about her own dog standing on a bee during the trial.
At the time, many people claimed that Heard’s facial expressions may have been overly dramatic, however, Doja Cat has still faced backlash due to the fact that the “Aquaman” star was speaking about allegedly being sexually assaulted.
doja cat mocking amber heard talking about the sexual assault she went through is so disgusting like she knows she has a platform that many young women follow her on and this is what she does with it? i am literally so disappointed

“my dog stepped on a bee” comes from amber heard’s account of her getting sexually assaulted. doja is making fun of her.

I mean I understand why people are mad bc she’s making fun of the testimony of an abuse victim which is really shitty but I feel like she just said it because her dog actually stepped on a bee and it was a meme and she probably didn’t look in the case too much so-
