Depp vs. Heard has been making headlines for weeks because of the dramatic and horrifying allegations of assault. Heard’s seemingly unrelated tidbit has become TikTok’s latest obsession.
Since her testimony was broadcast on May 4, TikTok users have been inspired to write rhymes based on her recollections.
After recalling an incident in which she and her ex-husband Depp got into a violent fight, Heard said, “My dog stepped on a bee,” before wincing as she described the day in question.
It’s no secret that TikTokers are enamored with the fast clip, and they’re making videos out of their own rambling rhymes and winces.
Video after video has accumulated hundreds of thousands to millions of views. Before TikTokers get into their own poetry, the viral videos begin with Heard’s original “My dog stepped on a bee” clip.
Amber Heard is inspiring many single men to stay single.

A man replies, “My dad wants to pee,” before user Cloeann Hardee sobs, “I forgot my house key” in a video that has garnered 6.3 million views.
“My child spilt my tea,” a woman complains. Finally, “Jimmy Savile shagged me,” Ben Cotton concluded his 2.6 million TikToker viewers with his rhyme.
Somebody known as Zeusliftsheavy combined Heard’s video with an excerpt from Queen’s music video for their 1984 single, I WANT TO BREAK FREE. 1.8 million people have viewed the video compilation.
More than 2 million people have seen another popular video in which a virtual bee proclaims, “Amber’s telling lies about me.”
It looks to be a random tidbit from Heard, but it actually stems from another day of harrowing testimonies.
On the day she claimed Depp conducted a “cavity search” on her, Heard claimed her dog injured itself and led her to a veterinarian’s clinic. They had ingested psychoactive mushrooms on the same day, according to the actress, while visiting friends in Joshua Tree, California’s Hicksville Trailer Palace.
Heard claimed that Depp pulled her dress and began patting her down after accusing her of hiding his drugs.
“He was telling me, ‘We’re going to do a cavity search,’ ” she said with a whimper.

“He just shoved his fingers inside me,” she continued, adding that she “just stood there standing at the stupid light” as he twisted his fingers around inside her.
His Hollywood career was allegedly halted because of an op-ed she penned for the Washington Post in which she called herself “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”
Despite the fact that the article did not identify Depp, readers were eager to link the charges of abuse to her ex-husband.
