Joe Rogan Says Johnny Depp Verdict Is Good For ‘People Who Believe In The Truth’
This isn’t the first time that the podcaster has commented on the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard defamation trial.
He previously called the Aquaman actress “crazy” after the whole defecating on Johnny Depp’s bed fiasco.
I think it was probably good for all people who believe in the truth. And the problem is there’s like this boys versus girls narrative that I think we all get into on these things.
Joe Rogan seems to be happy with the verdict in the Johnny Depp case
Rogan then added:
Like if you’re purposely changing reality, you’re lying about what happened just to try to hurt somebody, you’re doing a f***** up thing. Because you’re pretending you’re a victim and so it’s not as simple as you’re just lying. You’re turning someone into a criminal, you’re pretending you’re a victim. And if it’s all not true, it’s a really bad thing. It’s really bad. It’s just bad for all of us.
The jury on June 1st awarded Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages.
The judge adjusted the punitive damages to $350,000, as Virginia law limits punitive damages.
Heard, who had countersued for $100 million, was awarded $2 million by the jury, which found that Depp’s former attorney, Adam Waldman, had made defamatory comments about the Aquaman star.
