Johnny Depp ​Fans Petition For Amber Heard To Be Removed From Aquaman 2

Johnny Depp ​Fans Petition For Amber Heard To Be Removed From Aquaman 2

A group of fans are petitioning to have Amber Heard removed from the forthcoming Aquaman 2, due for release in 2022, amid legal battles linked to her messy divorce from Johnny Depp.

A Change.org petition titled 'Remove Amber Heard From Aquaman 2' has been signed by more than 960,000 people.

Its description makes various allegations against Heard, who filed for Divorce from Depp in 2016 on the grounds of domestic abuse.

It argues that, since their divorce, Heard 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'.

The description adds that 'men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women'.

Recently, it was announced that Depp had been asked to resign from his role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3, having only shot one scene of the project before leaving.

It comes after Depp was dropped by Warner Bros when he lost his libel case against The Sun newspaper and executive editor Dan Wootton.

The case centred on whether an article published in The Sun, in which Depp was called a 'wife beater', was libellous.

The newspaper claimed to have seen 'overwhelming evidence' that Depp had attacked the 34-year-old Heard, while Depp strenuously denies those allegations.

Both Depp and Heard gave evidence in the 16-day-long trial, which aired the tempestuous nature of their relationship, and stories of both brutal violence and intimate detail.

Thousands of people have since signed another petition demanding that Depp should be brought back for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts movie.
