Johnny Depp has exposed Amber Heard as a domestic abuser. Johnny Depp’s $50 million lawsuit details numerous incidences of domestic abuse by his (then) wife Amber Heard, including one event in which she hit him twice in the face and another in which she fractured his finger with a vodka bottle, necessitating surgical reattachment. He’ll be scarred for the rest of his life because of it.
Amber Heard was also arrested in 2009 for abusing Tasya Van Ree, a former domestic partner, establishing a pattern of abuse by Amber Heard.
Heard has been systematically crusading to harm Johnny Depp’s career in Hollywood since their divorce, repeating several allegations of fabricated instances in which she had genuinely abused Johnny Depp but lied and created bogus accounts of him being the abuser. Heard provided a bogus account about cutting off Johnny Depp’s finger, dipping it in paint, and scrawling obscenities all over the walls during the incident during which she smashed the bones in his finger and nearly severed it, prompting Depp to require surgery to reconnect and heal it.
Similarly, Heard fabricates stories about Johnny Depp punching her in the face when she had already punched him. Despite the fact that no marks on her face were visible in the hours and days after she claims Johnny Depp assaulted her, she came in court six (6) days later with bruises on her face, requesting a temporary restraining order, which was granted. Heard’s photos from the next day show her with her complete face, no makeup, and no bruises.
Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment should and must withdraw Amber Heard from their Aquaman 2 film production since she is a known and documented domestic abuser. They must neither overlook Heard’s victims’ pain, nor should they glorify a domestic abuser.
Men, like women, are victims of domestic violence. This needs to be acknowledged, and steps made to prevent a known abuser from being rewarded in the entertainment sector.
Despite the fact that the petition was filed in 2019, the current court hearings have sparked considerable interest, with the petition being extensively circulated on Twitter this week.
McKenzie Westmore, an actress, shared the petition on Twitter on Monday, stating, “I have to share this.” What’s going on in my opinion is heinous…. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 – Sign the Petition!” DC Entertainment: “Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 – Sign the Petition!”
A screenshot of the petition was also shared on Twitter, where it gained nearly 7,000 likes.
“The petition to remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 now has more than 1.9 million signatures and counting,” another tweeted.
Many Twitter users have called for Heard to be dismissed from the Aquaman films and removed as an L’Oréal spokesperson in recent weeks. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp and #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser are two popular hashtags.

Depp’s emails to a Dr. Kipper concerning Heard following his finger injury in Australia reveal he was concerned that his then-wife was more concerned with her profession than with him, according to his testimony.
Heard’s “obsession with herself,” according to Depp, is far more significant than her love for him.
He wrote, “She is so f*****’ ambitious.” “She’s desperate for fame and success.” That’s most likely why I was bought.”
In this defamation trial in Fairfax, Virginia, Heard has yet to take the witness stand.
Amber Heard’s Involvement in Aquaman 2 May Have an Impact on Ticket Sales, but How Much?
With nearly two million people signing a petition to have one of the film’s main stars removed, it appears that many would-be moviegoers would pass on Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom when it is released. It remains to be seen how much of an impact this will have on the sequel’s release, given the original’s enormous popularity. It may have aided Warner Bros. in delaying Aquaman 2 until 2023 by putting additional distance between the trial and the film’s release.
Fans boycotted the new Warner Bros. film Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore for recasting Johnny Depp’s character, and while the picture did fall short of company predictions, it’s difficult to determine how much of it can be attributable to Depp’s firing.
Other fans have already called for a boycott in response to J.K. Rowling’s contentious remarks about the transgender community. The film’s lukewarm reception during its initial release may have led to the dramatic dip in ticket sales during its second weekend in theatres.
In any event, it appears that over two million Depp fans, at the very least, will skip seeing the film. On March 17, 2023, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be released.
