Social media users were fascinated by a discussion about muffins like Dr. Shannon Curry, a clinical and forensic psychologist hired by Depp’s legal team to evaluate Heard. When Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoftin an attempt to sort out Curry’s testimony, the psychologist asked if her husband had brought along Aquaman the actress baked goods on the day of her evaluation, Curry replied, “May I clarify what happened so we can stop talking about the muffins?”
Curry went on to explain that she arrived 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 in the style of ‘my husband got these for us today’, which means he bought the muffins that we now enjoy them because of him.”
The bizarre exchange led to several TikTok videos, with some comparing it to the “Muffin Man” interrogation scene in Shrek.
