Who are Alexandra and Shane Cunningham? Amber Heard-Johnny Depp lookalikes slammed for parody
A Canadian couple with an incredible resemblance to Amber Heard and Johnny Depp has become popular on TikTok after posting a parody of the public's reaction to the actors. Alexandra Cunningham shared an imitation video, which also featured her husband Shane, on Sunday, May 22, 2022 via social media.
The video, which has received over 2.1 million views in less than 24 hours, demonstrates how a large section of the public appears to have sided with Depp during the enthralling court battle, while Heard has been vilified online. “People told me I look like Amber Heard before, but ever since the trial started, things have escalated,” Alexandra, who some think looks virtually identical to the 'Aquaman' actress, says in the TikTok video.
The video starts with a neighbor yelling, "Hey, Amber, catch this!" as they throw a tomato at her head. "You suck, Amber!" the provocateur exclaims angrily before bolting, leaving the lookalike (Alexandra) dumbfounded. Shane then comes out looking like Depp with shaggy hair and sunglasses, stepping out on the front door to a very different reaction from the ‘neighbors.’ In the parody footage, a spectator exclaims, "We love you, Johnny!" as Shane goes off with a smile on his face. "Everything you say is perfect!" Someone else fawns.
The clip is apparently a parody of the various reactions Depp and Heard get as they leave the Virginia courtroom each day. As she exits the courthouse, Heard is frequently booed, whereas Depp is greeted with enthusiastic screams from fans who have waited hours in line simply to see him. Many fans of Depp usually stand with posters supporting him and slamming Amber Heard as the real ‘abuser.’
The Cunninghams have gained some social media fame not only thanks to their resemblance to Depp and Heard but also for having a beautiful relationship. That said, some TikTok users think they look more like Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee than Depp and Heard. Meanwhile, others stated Alexandra resembled 'Gossip Girl' star Blake Lively in appearance. One viewer joked, "Oh honey, no. You are way prettier than Amber Heard.”
However, Twitter has proved a minefield for the Cunninghams as most comments they receive appear to be negative. One user wrote, “they look nothing like them, they look like attention seekers,” while another said, “They wish they looked like them. There's no resemblance 🙄🙄🙄” One user wrote, “The lookalike for amber does not look crackho enough really,” while another said, “Lookalikes if they were hit by a bus and dragged to Newark.” Someone else pointed out, “Not something to be proud of maybe she could pass as #BlakeLively sister 🤮🤢 #AmberHeard.”
