The breakout star from HBO Max's dark teen drama rubbed fans the wrong way when he joked about envisioning "hot" Amber Heard "beating" him up.

Last weekend, the 26-year-old was performing for college students at Northwestern University.

A clip from the concert that has been circulating showed Fike saying to the crowd, "Yo, I’m just gonna come straight out and say it. I’m gonna say it. I’m gonna be real with y’all."

He said he found Heard to be "hot," adding, "I don’t know. I know it’s not the popular opinion, and I know it’s not the focus at the moment, dude, but I’ve been having these visions of her."

The actor explained that the Aquaman star was "beating me up" in his visions.

"I think it’s hot," he shared with the crowd.

But the clip was viciously slammed by users after it began circulating around social media.

Heard was deadlocked in an explosive $50 million defamation court battle with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, which concluded on Friday.
