News has just come out that a petition that requests the DC creators to remove actress Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 has surfaced. The most shocking news is that it has surpassed 1.5 million signatures from the people. This petition on Change.org was created several months ago. It was when a chaotic divorce happened between iconic actor Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Reports were established that both these people proved to be physically violent during their tough relationship.
The petition is directed towards Courtney Simmons. She is the SVP of Publicity and Communications for DC Warner Bros. People also have been addressing Paul McGuire in this petition. He is the Corporate Communications of DC Entertainment. As a description of this petition, it reads about their appeal. It says that in Johnny Depp’s 50 million US dollar lawsuit, the actor has described a variety of incidents where he has been abused domestically. He has suffered at the hands of Amber Heard, who was married to him at that time.
It includes the incidents where she has punched him twice in the face and the other one where she has shattered his finger with a vodka bottle. During the latter incident, his finger had to be surgically reattached. The petition tells everyone that the actor is going to bear the scar from that for the rest of his life. It was even explained further that Heard had also been arrested earlier in 2009. It was because she had abused his former partner, that is, Tasya Van Ree.
The petition also reveals that this woman has even systematically crusaded to ruin the whole career of Johnny Depp in Hollywood. She has also repeated these accusations on multiple accounts of fake incidents in which she had actually abused the Pirates of The Caribbean star while also lying and creating false accounts of him being the abuser. Also, the news broke out back in 2019 that Depp has called the Warner Brothers to remove Heard from the Aquaman film in which she portrays the role of a superheroine called Mera, who is also a warrior. The filming for Aquaman 2 is underway.
Although, this was not accepted by the officials, and it was later confirmed by Heard that she would reprise the role in the upcoming sequel. Also, the petition has now started trending once again. At this point in time, it sits at 1.6 million signatures. It has happened after Depp has lost a libel case against a Newspaper Company called The Sun, which is based in The United Kingdom. It was when one of the writers labeled Johnny Depp as a wife beater. Following this incident, Johnny Depp was asked to resign from The Fantastic Beasts franchise. With this move, fans expect the DC Entertainment studio to call the resignation of Amber Heard.
