An online petition has been doing the rounds on the internet in order to remove actor Amber Heard from the lead cast of Aquaman 2. This petition was started after Amber Heard was heard confessing about hitting her ex-husband Johnny Depp in an audio clip. Read on to know more details about this ongoing petition.
The domestic violence case between actor Johnny Depp and Amber Heard became one of the most talked-about incidents in Hollywood. A few days ago, an audio clip was released that had Amber Heard admitting that she was “hitting” her ex-husband Johnny Depp. This audio clip has then led to an online petition that is demanding the removal of Amber Heard from the upcoming Aquaman 2 instalment.
This petition is gaining strong support as time passes. Johnny Depp’s fans are much more vocal about their support for this petition. Many fans are blaming Amber Heard for Depp potentially being removed from any future Pirates of the Caribbean films. However, Depp’s departure from the franchise has not been confirmed.
According to a media portal’s report, more than 146,000 people have signed a petition on Change.org to remove Heard from the Aquaman 2 cast. This ongoing petition has been addressed to DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. It also argues that Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard is a violent person and hence not suitable for a family-friendly franchise.
In the audio clip published by a media portal and reportedly given by Johnny Depp, Amber Heard admits of “hitting” Depp. In the audio clip, Depp says, “It's not true. It's not true. I'm not the one who throws pots and whatever the f—ing else at me”. Then Amber Heard says, “I'm sorry that I didn't, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you're not punched” She further adds, “I don't know what the motion of my actual hand was, but you're fine, I did not hurt you, I did not punch you, I was hitting you."
