Joe Rogan calls Amber Heard 'crazy lady', says Johnny Depp isn't 'right' amid sensational trial

  • 29/04/2022

As the sensational defamation hearing of former married couple Amber Heard and Johnny Depp continues, more and more celebs are chiming in with opinions - now including popular podcast star Joe Rogan.

The former Fear Factor host labelled Amber Heard a "full of shit… crazy lady" in a recent broadcast, suggesting allegations she defecated in a bed and lied about domestic violence mean she's suffering mental illness.

Rogan started episode #1809 with guest Jessica Kirson by declaring the Depp vs Heard trial a "cautionary tale about believing your own bullshit".

"That's what happens with people like that. People that are just completely manipulative and full of shit like that," he said.

"[Comedian] Doug Stanhope knows her. Stanhope is buddies with Johnny Depp. He wrote something... like an essay about how full of shit she is, and she threatened to sue him, and I think he had to wind up taking it down.

"He knows her well and he's like, 'She's out of her f**king mind'. Like a crazy actress!' 

"That's what I felt like about Anthony Bourdain and his relationship to that crazy woman [Asia Argento]. You're seeing it play out in court, you're seeing all the crazy come out."

However, Rogan wasn't very complimentary to Depp, either. 

"He was famous when he was 20. I don't think you get any kind of perspective like that, I think you're f**ked. It's like making cement but you don't add in all the ingredients and it's like, ahhh it never cured right."

He also suggested Depp is suffering as a result of "55 years of doing [cocaine]".

Rogan claimed Heard doesn't have a lot of money so Depp won't win much from the case - aside from public opinion.

"The only good thing [for Depp if he wins] is everybody knows now there's something wrong with her," he said.

"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!"

Rogan's comments were made the same week as another outspoken celebrity, Howard Stern, voiced his opinion on the ongoing trial.

The radio star appeared to side more with Heard, claiming Depp was "overacting" as a "huge narcissist" during the trial.

Depp is suing Heard in the US state of Virginia for US$50 million in damages over an article she wrote for the Washington Post in 2018 about his alleged abuse, which he said ruined his career.
