Dominic Fike gets dragged for controversial Amber Heard remark
Evanston, Illinois - Euphoria star Dominic Fike made an eye-raising comment about Amber Heard during a concert.
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."
Fike lands in hot water with fans over inappropriate joke
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.
"Bruh no matter who's side you're on for this trial.. dominic fike saying hes had visions of amber beating him up is so???? f**king weird. & gross. & not in the least funny??? this is a trial about abuse why is ANYONE making jokes about it?!?! y'all are literally unhinged. ffs," one fan tweeted.
