Last month, amid Roe v. Wade getting overturned by the Supreme Court, Billie Eilish asked in regards to the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, “Who f*cking gives a f*ck?” She later added, “Who gives a sh*t?” The answer to both of those questions is a significant portion of the online community, as many moments from the trial were vaulted to viral TikTok fame.
One such moment was when Heard emotionally told a story about her dog stepping on a bee, at one point offering a seemingly pained expression that many thought felt forced or out of place. Now, Doja Cat, ever the TikTok star, has gone and re-created the moment in a now-deleted video, offering her own kooky expression while repeatedly saying her dog stepped on a bee.

During a live broadcast later, Doja explained that her dog did actually step on a bee, which is what prompted her video.

It’s not clear why the original video is no longer on Doja’s TikTok account, but she did face some backlash for it on Twitter. Some noted that Heard’s testimony was about allegedly being sexually assaulted by Depp and that Doja was making light of that. Others, though, didn’t think Doja’s video was a big deal and that it was being blown out of proportion. Either way, this isn’t Doja’s first time in recent days facing backlash after the whole Stranger Things saga.

"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-
