A petition demanding the removal of Johnny Depp’s ex-wife, Amber Heard, from Aquaman 2 has been signed by over a million fans, the New York Post reported on November 27.
According to the authors of the petition, Heard virtually destroyed her ex-husband’s career by unjustly accusing him of violence and depriving him of the opportunity to act in films. According to the authors of the petition, “she systematically attacked Depp in Hollywood.”
The authors of the appeal addressed to the bosses of Hollywood recall that Amber Heard herself was caught in cases of domestic violence, and not only in relation to Depp, but also in relation to Tasa Van Rhee, an American photographer with whom Heard had a relationship before her romance with Johnny Depp.
“Since Amber Heard has been convicted of domestic violence, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment can and should remove Heard from their Aquaman 2 project,” the petition said. The document emphasizes that men can also be victims of domestic violence and Depp’s relationship with Heard is just an example of such a case.
At the time of this writing, over 1.5 million signatures have been left under the petition posted on Change.org.
We will remind, earlier Johnny Depp was deprived of the role in the third part of the Fantastic Beasts franchise. According to Depp, this happened at the initiative of the Warner Brothers film studio.
