Social media users were fascinated with a discussion about muffins as Dr. Shannon Curry, a clinical and forensic psychologist who was hired by Depp’s legal team to evaluate Heard, took the stand. When Heard’s attorney Elaine Bredehoft, in an attempt to sort out Curry’s testimony, asked the psychologist if her husband had brought the Aquaman actress baked goods on the day of her evaluation, Curry replied, “May I clarify what occurred so we can stop talking about the muffins?”
Curry went on to explain that she was running late that day and had asked her husband “to pick up the muffins for me” from a local bakery for the office, not specifically for Heard.
“He brought the muffins back to the house. I brought them into the office. Ms. Heard and I enjoyed the muffins together,” Curry said. “I think I made a comment to her along the lines of ‘my husband got these for us today,’ meaning he purchased the muffins we are now enjoying them because of him.”
The bizarre exchange led to numerous TikTok videos, with some comparing it to the “Muffin Man” interrogation scene in Shrek.
