Actor Johnny Depp stepped into London’s High Court to sue The Sun newspaper for libel. However, the main thing that came out of it, besides the salacious details between him and his ex-wife Amber Heard, was his iffy court sketch.
The court sketch has been described as a nerdy caricature of the actor, and internet users are relentlessly trolling the drawing for bearing almost no resemblance to Depp on social media. One user shared there was “really no excuse for” an unrecognizable drawing as the famed actor’s photos are plastered everywhere for practice and reference.
Depp sued the tabloid for portraying him as a wife-beater, a charge he has denied.
For the hearing, Heard brought in photos and videos of him allegedly being abusive during their marriage. Depp, on the other hand, showed photos from his hospital visit of a severed finger resulting from inflictions apparently made by Heard.
Heard also presented photos of Depp doing drugs and drinking late at night as evidence for his unhealthy behaviors.
There were also photos of Depp entering and leaving the court, which would make decent comparisons between his appearance in court and the artist’s sketch of Depp.

I know court artists have to leave the room and draw these things from memory, so they often don’t render a great likeness. But when it’s Johnny Depp, they can practise all they like before arriving. There’s really no excuse for this. pic.twitter.com/lU72pZa0YI— Dave Lee (@davelee1968) July 7, 2020
