Even the king of controversy himself, Joe Rogan is throwing his opinion into the ring.
Well, if Howard Stern thinks Johnny Depp is a “disaster,” it’s only fitting that Joe Rogan is on the opposite end of the spectrum. The controversial Spotify podcast host called Amber Heard a “crazy lady” and believes this defamation trial is a “big win” for the actor.
On Tuesday, April 26, During his “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, Rogan weighed in on Johnny Depp’s defamation suit against Amber Heard. He said that 36-year-old Heard is a “crazy lady” and that her charges of violence against her ex-husband are “not true.”
Here’s Rogan’s remark while introducing Jessica Kirson, a featured guest, and comedian:
“I’m watching this trial, and it’s like a cautionary tale about believing in bulls**t, forming a narrative in your head like, ‘We’re rebels together. That’s what I felt like about Anthony Bourdain and his relationship to that crazy woman.”
Rogan then added, referring to Bourdain’s romance with Asia Argento, an Italian film actress, and director: “You’re seeing all the crazy come out.”
Depp is suing Heard for $50 million-plus legal fees on grounds of defamation, arguing that claims of abuse she made in a 2018 essay published in The Washington Post were false and derailed his career.
Going back to Rogan, he noted the inflammatory claims that Heard used a specific makeup made by Milani — which was found to not have been sold at the time of her alleged reliance on it — and that she left a “fecal delivery” in 58-year-old Depp’s bed.
Kirson replied, laughing, “That’s crazy!”
“But that’s what happens with people like that! People, that are just manipulative and full of s–t like that? [Comedian] Doug Stanhope knows her. Stanhope’s buddies with Johnny Depp. He wrote something … like a little essay about how full of s–t she is and she threatened to sue him, and I think he had to wind up taking it down.
“He knows her well … He’s like, ‘She’s out of her f–king mind.’ Like, a crazy actress!”
He went on to suggest that Depp was already at a disadvantage simply because he became famous in his young 20s, Rogan said:
“I don’t think you get any perspective like that, I think you’re f–ked.”
Rogan said he believes if Depp wins the case “the only good thing is everybody knows now … there’s something wrong with [Heard].
“This is a big win for Johnny Depp. And a big loss for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean!’ … You got rid of the best f–king pirate you ever had! For a crazy lady!”
Even if the trial is in its third week, we still have six weeks to go and there may be some fascinating testimonies. We’re all waiting for Elon Musk, James Franco, Jason Momoa, and other notable celebs to make an appearance.
