The Petition

An online petition byΒ Jeanne Larson urging studio personnel to fire Amber Heard from the upcoming Aquaman sequel received more than 1.5 million signatures recently. Amber Heard met her former spouse Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean, Fantastic Beasts, 21 Jump Street) on the Set of The Rum Diaries and their romance blossomed.

What Happened?

After the release of a Voice Recording between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard- Depp claims to have lost a finger due to the violent nature of his then-wife, Amber was furiously telling Depp how nobody in the Society would believe him.

Furthermore

Before this, Amber claimed about how Johnny was a domestic abuser who hit him regularly. Such allegations finally led to Depp’s departure from the Warner Bros. franchises. In November, Justice Andrew Nicol decreed November 2 that the claim in an article in 2018 by The Sun owned by Rupert Murdoch about his relationship with Heard that Depp was a wife-beater was β€œsubstantially true.”

β€œMen are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognised, and one should take action to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry, Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.” Larsen wrote.

The Result

Mr Depp’s libel claim against the publisher of TheΒ Sun, News Group Newspapers (NGN), was dismissed last month and the judge has since said an appeal does not have a “reasonable prospect of success.

Jhonny Depp got fired from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Even if the franchise continues, it might only have spinoffs. He permanently got fired from The Fantastic Beasts franchise, and Madds Mikkelsen (Casino Royale, Dr Strange, The Hunt) has got recast in the role of Grindlewald.
