There is an ongoing petition for Amber Heard’s removal from Aquaman 2. After an audio clip revealed she’s domestically abusing her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, fans want her to suffer the same blacklisting he endures. Hence, there are now claims that the 34-year-old actress is no longer part of James Wan’s movie sequel.
Johnny Depp claimed that he never abused Amber Heard or any women for that matter, BBC noted. Instead, it was the Aquaman star who committed “innumerable acts of domestic violence” against him.
Amber Heard’s removal from Aquaman 2
There are rumors The Danish Girl star is now fired from Aquaman 2 due to her legal battle with Johnny Depp. The Digital Wise reported that multiple sources revealed that she is also no longer part of other Warner Bros.’s future film projects.
Aside from that, there are claims that L’Oreal Paris may replace Amber Heard as its brand ambassador. As the court refuses her appeal, she may now experience its effect on her current and future endeavors.
Allegedly, Warner Bros. is looking for someone to replace the model with another actress or give her a limited screen time in the Aquaman sequel. However, these claims have yet to be confirmed.
The online petition against Amber Heard
So, where do these rumors come from? An online petition is now making rounds, asking everyone to remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2. More than 400,000 people signed the plea, nearing its 500,000 target signatures.
The Texas-born star and Johnny Depp’s court battle has been going through a lot of surprising developments. Things started to change when the 56-year-old actor filed a multi-million dollar defamation lawsuit to clear his name. He also revealed that he experienced domestic violence from the actress that caused serious harm in his body.
So, Johnny Depp’s fans are now clamoring for justice. They want to see Amber Heard experience the same blacklisting that he endures for allegedly domestically abusing her.
This gave birth to the online petition that is asking for her removal from Aquaman 2. With the #MeToo movement today, fans said that men could be a victim of emotional and physical violence, too.
According to We Got This Covered, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment earlier said that they didn’t “glamorize a domestic abuser.” So, with the current fans’ cry and the increasing support that the petition gets, the studio may have to address or even put attention on Amber Heard’s stand on Aquaman 2. Surely, they don’t want to take a controversial risk on their highly successful movie.
