The video was referencing Johnny Depp's claim his ex-wife sliced the tip of his finger off with a broken vodka bottle during the pair's controversial defamation trial. 

While some found the video which was captioned 'Will she like it?' funny, it was met with a barrage of angry comments calling the prank 'tone deaf' and 'sick'. 

'This is disgusting. I hope they shut your store down,' one commenter savagely said. 

'Taunting a rape victim huh. You're like 60, use what energy you do have in writing out your will, sweetie,' another wrote.

'This joke is about as tasteless as that dessert looks,' said a third while another commented: 'POV: how to go out of business'.  

Mansour Shukoor who is on the Dessert Box marketing team, said since the video went viral, they have been bombarded with responses from furious 'trolls'. 

'A lot of people were against it and were very, very upset about it. We've received death threats and a lot of emails, ' he said. 

Mansour and the Dessert box team are staunchly 'Team Johnny' and said they won't be taking the video down despite the strong backlash. 

'We don't believe people's anger and negative reactions should dictate what we post,' he said. 

'We post what's in line with our company's morals and ethics - we posted it because its something we believe in.' 

The drama has not deterred Dessert Box from posting more videos in support of Johnny Depp including one joking about creating a GoFundMe 'so Amber Heard's lawyers can go to school' and another showing the 'shrine' they erected for Depp's attorney, Camille Vasquez.
