Last year Johnny Depp announced that he has been "asked to resign" from the upcoming "Fantastic Beasts 3," amid his legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard. At that time, Depp's fans were infuriated with his expulsion. Now, Internet users are demanding Heard's removal from the upcoming film 'Aquaman 2'.

Depp also lost his high-profile libel case against the publishers of The Sun newspaper over a 2018 article that called him a "wife-beater," after which he was asked to resign from 'Fantastic Beast 3'. Depp has denied the claims of abuse but was once again denied permission to appeal the court's ruling in March 2021. Stephen Deuters, European president of Depp's production company told London's High Court that Heard subjected Depp to "years of abuse". He said that he had worked for the US actor since 2004. In his written witness statement, he said he saw Heard "on many occasions" during the period Depp is alleged to have been abusive. "At no point did Heard ever mention any physical abuse and I never saw evidence of any injury to Heard," he claimed. Deuters said he was "extremely surprised and outraged" when it became public that Heard had filed for a temporary restraining order in 2016. "I knew that Heard was the abuser in the relationship and I was appalled that she would behave in this way," he said.

Later, there were reports that claimed that Heard physically abused his then-husband. Depp’s security chief alleged that Heard physically abused Depp during the couple’s tempestuous marriage, giving testimony to support Depp’s libel suit against a British tabloid that accused him of assaulting his former spouse. In a written witness statement released, security officer Sean Bett said that “throughout the course of Depp and Heard’s relationship Heard was verbally and physically abusive towards Depp.” “On many occasions, I witnessed her shout at Mr. Depp. I was also told by Mr. Depp on multiple occasions that Ms. Heard had physically abused him,” he said.

Now, with Depp losing his roles and projects, and with so many reports claiming that Heard abused Depp, Internet wanted Heard to be canceled and removed from 'Aquaman 2'. One person tweeted, "Do you understand this??? Talented and profitable actor Johnny Depp fired. No talent, abusive,vengeful Amber Heard is still employed. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser." While another one said, "When you see that Warner Bros kept Amber Heard onboard for Aquaman 2 but still haven't brought back Johnny Deep for 'Fantastic Beast'"



 



 

 

Another one said, "i see amber heard is still going to be on aquaman 2 after abusing johnny depp ... some things just never change in this world we live in." While one person said, "Johnny Depp was not her only victim. The fact that Amber heard is getting away with this is so infuriating."



 



 

 

Calling Depp a "victim", one person tweeted, " Imagine how much more hype Aquaman 2 would be getting if Amber Heard wasn’t in it. Why an abuser still has a job with WB when Johnny Depp, her victim, had to step down from his is a peak of injustice I refuse to be okay with." Questioning "cancel culture" another one said, "If cancel culture was a real Amber Heard wouldn’t still be in movies"



 



 

 

One Internet user said, "petition to cancel amber heard." While another one wrote, "Hmm Amber Heard apparently said the n word, was abusive to several people not just Johnny Depp but yet is still in Aquaman 2 wtf Warner Brothers if cancel culture was real she wouldn't still have a job."



 



 

 

Depp, 57, and Heard, 34, met on the set of the 2011 comedy 'The Rum Diary' and married in Los Angeles in February 2015. Heard filed for divorce the following year, and the divorce was finalized in 2017.
