Podcast host Joe Rogan suggested that bringing back Johnny Depp to his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise could help the Walt Disney Company’s stock price recover.
During The Joe Rogan Experience podcast on Tuesday, Rogan gave the Walt Disney Company some unsolicited advice: “If Disney wanted to reclaim all the stock that they’ve lost, all the market share that they’ve lost over the last couple of months, I guarantee, you say, ‘F*** it, we’re on Team Johnny Depp.'”
This year, Disney’s stock has dropped 32.1 percent.
As the entertainment industry clashed with Florida’s Republican politicians over the state’s Parent Rights in Education Act, dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” measure, its stock lost about $50 billion in value between March and April.
“I wonder if [Depp] will return to Pirates of the Caribbean,” Rogan speculated. “That would very certainly boost their stock market price.”
He stated, “Like, literally, that would cause their stock to rise.” “If they just say, ‘You know what?'” Johnny is coming back with us. We trust him.’ “Most women believe hashtag.”
Rogan isn’t the only one who wants to see Depp reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. During the actor’s defamation trial against Amber Heard, two petitions gathered new traction.
