Joe Rogan Weighs In On Johnny Depp, Amber Heard Bot Claims

Joe Rogan shared some thoughts on the Johnny Depp, Amber Heard lawsuit with the podcaster commenting on new research into the reaction to the former couple on social media.

New research shows nearly 11% of Twitter accounts commenting on the lawsuit are “inauthentic”.

Cyabra, a technology company dedicated to detecting fake social media accounts, shared its analysis of 2,300 Twitter profiles engaged in the Depp/Heard speech and found that most genuine accounts support the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, while the inauthentic supported his ex-wife.

The findings were published in a report by FoxNews which Rogan shared on his Instagram account on Sunday.

“I’m surprised it’s only 11%,” the host of The Joe Rogan Experience says in his caption.

Cyabra explained their findings, telling Fox News that they also looked at accounts using the hashtags #IStandWithAmberHeard, #BoycottJohnnyDepp and #JusticeForJohnnyDepp.

Cyabra CEO Dan Brahmy told the outlet that their findings show a “very clear distinction between” inauthentic accounts supporting pro-Depp or pro-Heard sentiments.

The company said the figure of 11% of Twitter accounts commenting that the lawsuit was inauthentic is about three to four times higher than the percentage of other inauthentic accounts commenting on hot topics.

The findings come after it was reported last week that Depp currently has more vocal support on Twitter.

The actor, 58, is suing his ex-wife for defamation over an op-ed she wrote about domestic violence in The Washington Post in 2018. Although Depp was not named in the article, his lawyers argue that Heard’s involvement is obvious.

Heard, 35, is filing a $100million nuisance countersuit with her lawyers ready to argue that the trial in question was a matter of public interest and therefore should be shielded from a defamation suit .

From the start of Depp’s defamation case against Heard, the hashtag #JusticeForJohnnyDeppVirginia2022 appeared on Twitter with near consensus among Twitter users to side with Depp against Heard.

Among the main findings of the trial, Depp testified that Heard threw a large bottle of vodka at him during a fight while the former couple were in Australia, which cut off his fingertip.

Another key moment was when the court saw text exchanges between Depp and Wanda Vision star Paul Bettany, including one where the actors joked about Heard’s murder.

Depp also accused Heard of defecating in their bed, and Heard admitted to hitting her then-husband while she was “on Ambien”.

Ambien is a drug primarily used for the short-term treatment of sleep disorders.
