As you know from yesterday, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are getting divorced (opens in new tab) after just over one year of marriage. We blame Australia and also the entire dog species (opens in new tab), but whatever.

Both Depp and Heard have remained silent about their split thus far, but Depp's rep issued a statement last night threw a lil' carefully placed shade while at it. If there were an award for "Shade You Can Barely Tell Is There But Is Shade Nonetheless," this would win:

"Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly."
