Johnny Depp’s Popularity Plunges Among Boomers and Democrats, but Gen Z Still Loves Him


Johnny Depp’s popularity plunges among Boomers and Democrats but Gen Z still loves him.

Depp launched a defamation lawsuit for $50 million against ex wife Amber Heard in 2019, after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post.

Heard then countersued for $100 million as she claimed Depp’s legal team started a “smear campaign” against her.

Depp then won the legal battle and the Aquaman star has been ordered by the court to pay more than $8 million to Depp in damages.

It now appears that the actor’s popularity may be decreasing in certain demographic groups.

According to the Morning Consult report, in April, 68% of adults were in favor of Depp. In June, that number decreased to 56%.

The Independent noting that “among baby boomers, Depp’s favorability rating fell from 59 per cent in April to 37 per cent in June.”

Gen Z adults remained in favor of Depp and there was little change in millenials’ vote. Men’s vote was 67 percent in April and 52 percent in June.

The publisher wrote:

“Women’s views saw a smaller decrease by only nine points. The actor’s popularity took the hardest hit among Democrats, from 70 per cent to 55 per cent while independents showed a fall from 68 per cent to 55 percent. Republicans’ favorable views dropped from 65 per cent to 57 percent,”
