Joe Rogan opens up on the juries
The UFC color commentator regularly discusses Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s trial on The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) podcast and is an advocate for Depp’s innocence. However, this could be the first time the controversial figure questioned the authenticity of juries in high-profile cases.
“First of all, here’s the problem with the jury. They’re too dumb to get out of jury duty. I’m kidding. Here’s the problem. You dont’ know who they are. You don’t know what they’re doing. You could be anybody. You might get a jury filled with brilliant, sensitive, compassionate, kind, caring, intelligent and objective people who really want justice to be served.”
Rogan then referred to O.J. Simpson’s trial and added:
“Or you might have nutty people. Who knows. Who knows how they choose the jury. Look at the jury that exonerated O.J. Simpson. That’s wild. The fact that they looked at the case and said not guilty. That is wild. That’s real. That’s the problem with the jury.”
The trial has been grabbing the headlines for quite some time now and according to reports, the famous Hollywood actor filed a $50 million defamation suit against his ex-wife for a column she wrote for The Washington Post. She further accused the Pirates of the Caribbean actor of domestic violence. The actress filed a countersuit for $100 million against Depp in response. It was also noted that WWE legend might be involved in the case as well. Many WWE stars including Kayla Braxton reacted to the conclusion as well.
During the trial, it was noted that Amber Heard reportedly defecated on The Pirates of the Caribbean star’s bed. According to Heard, it was a practical joke gone wrong. There were also many other reasons presented by her and her team as to where the feces came from. Logan Paul recently opened up on the matter and shared his take.
