A new poll suggests that Johnny Depp actually lost popularity with the public during his defamation and Amber Heard trial, despite the appearance of overwhelming support on social media.

The survey found that at the end of the six-week trial, the number of American adults who viewed Depp as somewhat or very favorably dropped from 68 percent to 56 percent.

Where Depp saw his popularity plummet the most was in the baby boomer age group. In April, Depp’s preference rating among baby boomers was 59%. When the trial ended in June, that number had fallen to 37%, making baby boomers’ opinion of Depp worse than any other age group.

Additionally, Depp’s popularity among men also plummeted. Before the trial, it was 67%. It has since fallen 15%, landing at 52%.
