Johnny Depp is no stranger to controversy. Johnny has lost two projects in recent years because of the situation with Amber Heard. Both of them have filed the case in both U.K and US courts. However, Johnny Depp has lost in the U.K court against The Sun magazine called Johnny Depp “Wife beater”. Depp described that it damaged his reputation and was removed from the “Pirates of the Caribbean”.
However, Amber Heard is still getting projects even though there was evidence that she was abusive towards Johnny as well. Due to this act of unfairness, Warner Bros has been getting a lot of hate on social media. Fans were not happy with the news of a “Female” pirate, a new version of Pirates of the Caribbean Disney is planning to release soon. Now, Warner Bros has decided to kick Johnny out of the Fantastic Beasts 3.
Petition to bring back Johnny Depp
Fans have started a petition on change.org to bring Johnny Depp back in the Fantastic Beasts 3. The actor has been struggling a lot both in his professional career and personal life. But, Johnny Depp is still getting many roles. He even did Waiting for the Barbarians alongside Robert Pattinson. His band The Hollywood Vampires is doing great. The actor just joined Instagram and already has 7 million followers on the platform. He often posts videos of his songs on his account as well.
The petition was started by Larson on change.org and already has been signed by 10k people in just a day. The description of petition is;
There’s so much wrong with this that reaches far beyond one role – or two, now that he’s lost Pirates as well. In the end, Johnny will prevail. He’s currently appealing the verdict against him. It’s very likely that he’ll win the appeal, and his upcoming defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard, too. He’s still got film roles coming in, his band the Hollywood Vampires is rock and rolling along. Besides this, he has the love and support of the entire world. If anything, the verdict has brought the world closer together in their support of this wrongfully persecuted man. But the damage is done. Not just to Johnny, but every male survivor of domestic abuse.
However, a petition like this was also started when Disney fired Johnny from the Pirates of the Caribbean. The petition was signed by thousands of people but still, there was no result. Fans are also posting on Twitter. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard both of them have been trending on the platform for a while now.
Another case on U.S court
Johnny Depp has also filed a case against Amber Heard in the U.S court for defamation. Fans believe that Johnny will win the defamation case against amber heard. However, Amber still has to make a public statement. Fans are enraged by the court’s decision and want Depp back on the project. There was another petition on Change.org to remove Amber heard from the upcoming Aquaman. However, the fantastic beats 3’s release date has been changed to 2022 as well.
