Dominic Fike has found himself in hot water after giving his “unpopular opinion” about Amber Heard.
In a video circulating on social media, the E Euphoria star, 26, was performing a concert at Northwestern University in Illinois on May 21 when he took a moment to air his ‘not popular’ opinion to the crowd of mostly university students
“Yo, so I’m just gonna come straight out and say it,” Dominic began. “Actually, I think Amber Heard is hot, dude.”
The singer added, “I know it’s not a popular opinion and it’s not the focus at the moment, dude, but I’ve been having these visions of her just beating me up-I think it’s hot.”
In the clip, members of the audience were heard booing and gasping in response to Dominic’s statements.

As the concert footage circulated on Twitter, social media users wrote that Fike’s “career is over” and asked why he would “cancel himself like that.”
One tweet read, “Making light and romanticizing domestic violence is so weird.”
Another tweeted, “Dominic Fike just ended his career before it even started. Boy I hope you learned your lesson and realize how many people truly dislike Amber Heard”
“Dominic Fike so irrelevant he’s trying to do controversial stuff just to get canceled like man sit down 😭like you trying to be edgy at your big age is embarrassing”, another reads.
The “3 Nights” singer’s controversial comments came amid Heard’s defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, 58, sued Heard in 2019 for $50 million due to a Washington Post op-ed she wrote, in which the Texas native called herself “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”
