Depp's joke was in reference to his severely damaged finger that was severed during a heated 2015 fight with his ex-wife, as he alleged during his testimony in the headline-making defamation trial against Amber Heard. The Golden Globe Award winner claimed an entire part of his finger was ripped off after Heard, 36, allegedly threw a glass bottle at him.

“I looked down, and realized the tip of my finger had been severed, and I was looking directly at bones sticking out and the meaty portion of your inside of your finger, and blood was just pouring out," Depp stated in his testimony, per HollywoodLife. He told the jury he then used the blood gushing from his finger to write messages on the wall.
