'Aquaman 2': Johnny Depp fans petition for Amber Heard's removal from film, say 'abuser must not be celebrated'
The recent petition came after Depp’s fans signed another one demanding Warner Bros bring back the actor to the ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ franchise
Johnny Depp fans have launched a petition demanding Amber Heard’s removal from ‘Aquaman 2’. The petition called ‘Remove Amber Heard From Aquaman 2’ has been started on Change.org and 1,003,253 people have signed it at the time of writing. The petition has made several allegations against Heard as it wrote the 34-year-old actress “has been exposed as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp. In his $50 million lawsuit, Johnny Depp describes many incidents of domestic abuse that he suffered at the hands of his (then) wife Amber Heard, including one incident where she punched him twice in the face and another where she shattered his finger with a vodka bottle, and his finger had to be surgically reattached. He will bear the scar from that for the rest of his life.”
The petition continued, “Since Heard's divorce from Johnny Depp, she has systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood, repeating multiple accounts of fake incidents in which she had actually abused Johnny Depp, but lied and created false accounts of him being the abuser. About the incident during which she shattered the bones in Johnny Depp's finger and nearly severed it, causing Depp to require surgery to reattach and repair it, Heard presented a false story claiming that he cut off his finger himself, dipped it in paint and scrawled obscenities all over the walls.”
“As Amber Heard is a known and proven domestic abuser, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment should and must remove Heard from their Aquaman 2 film project. They must not ignore the suffering of Heard's victims, and must not glamorize a domestic abuser. Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken,” the message stated. "Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry. Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2," stated the petition in conclusion.
This comes soon after Depp’s fans signed another petition demanding that the 57-year-old actor should be brought back to the ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ franchise. “Johnny Depp was asked by Warner Bros to resign and leave his role of Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts 3 movie after he lost his libel case against The Sun newspaper and executive editor Dan Wootton. This happened because of the verdict of his case with "The Sun" tabloid that was completely unfair. We want him back! Warner Bros should listen to the public or we will boycott the movie!!!” the message on the petition stated.
Last week only, the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor shared a statement on his Instagram page writing that he has been asked to quit his role as dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the upcoming movie. The social media statement read, “In light of recent events, I would like to make the following short statement. Firstly, I’d like to thank everybody who has gifted me with their support and loyalty. I have been humbled and moved by your many messages of love and concern, particularly over the last few days. Secondly, I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request. Finally, I wish to say this. The surreal judgment of the court in the UK will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal.”
