Rogan likes to talk about a lot of stuff and he’s got himself into some rather hot water recently over his whole Covid-19 vaccination stance.
But, let’s not talk about his opinions on Covid vaccines.
The podcast host has now moved onto the Heard and Depp defamation trial.
Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard for defamation over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in which she spoke of being a victim of domestic abuse.
Depp is claiming that Heard’s article was referencing their marriage and he also wants to clear his name.
This comes after Johnny Depp lost his trial against The Sun newspaper group in the UK after they called him a “wife-beater” in an article.
However, Depp hasn’t given up and this new trial, which is taking place in Virginia in the United States, has really blown the story wide open.
Depp has been taking to the stand and revealing what really went on between him and Heard whilst they were married.
Joe Rogan weighs in on Amber Heard and Johnny Depp trial
During a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Podcast, Rogan and his guest, Jessica Kirson, were discussing Depp talking about how Amber Heard defecated on his bed.
Here’s what Rogan had to say about Amber Heard after watching clips from the trial:
I’m watching this trial, and like, it’s a cautionary tale, about believing in bullshit, 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 … you’re seeing all the crazy come out.
Rogan has definitely been following the trial rather closely.
He’s also made it clear during his show that he doesn’t believe that Johnny Depp physically abused Ms. Heard.
“She said that she used this specific makeup to cover all her bruises that Johnny gave her?” Rogan said, adding under his breath: “Which is not true.”
Rogan sides with Johnny Depp
“The problem,” he added, “is it was a specific makeup and the company didn’t even make that makeup at the time she said she was using it!”
“That’s crazy!” Kirson replied.
“But that’s what happens with people like that!” Rogan continued.
“People that are just manipulative and full of shit like that? Doug Stanhope knows her. Stanhope’s buddies with Johny Depp. He wrote something … like a little essay bout how full of shit she is … He knows her well … he’s like, ‘She’s out of her fucking mind.’ Like, a crazy actress!”
Rogan then went on to add that the thought the trial was good for Depp, but not Disney and the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.
“This is a big win for Johnny Depp,” he said.
“And a big loss for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean!’ … You got rid of the best fuckin’ pirate you ever had! For a crazy lady!”
