A change.org petition that was started in December 2019 to remove Amber Heard from the upcoming Aquaman 2 movie due to revelations of her domestic violence against Johnny Depp, has seen renewed support in the midst of Depp’s defamation lawsuit against her.
An audio recording was played in court last week, where Heard was heard admitting that she had hit Depp and challenging him to tell the world about it, implying that no one will believe him.
The petition has so far hit more than 2.3 million signatures, with a goal of 3 million signatures.
Here is what is stated on the petition
Amber Heard has been exposed by Johnny Depp. In his $50 million lawsuit, Johnny Depp describes many incidents of domestic violence that he suffered at the hands of his (then) wife Amber Heard, including one incident where she punched him twice in the face and another where she shattered his finger with a vodka bottle, and his finger had to be surgically reattached. He will bear the scar from that for the rest of his life.
Also, Amber Heard was arrested in 2009 for violence against a former domestic partner, Tasya Van Ree, demonstrating a repeated pattern of violence by Amber Heard.
Since Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp, she has systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood, repeating multiple accounts of fake incidents in which she had actually been violent to Johnny Depp, but lied and created false accounts of him being the antagonist. About the incident during which she shattered the bones in Johnny Depp’s finger and nearly severed it, causing Depp to require surgery to reattach and repair it, Heard presented a false story claiming that he cut off his finger himself, dipped it in paint and scrawled obscenities all over the walls.
Likewise, Heard recounts fabricated incidents of Johnny Depp hitting her in the face when she had, in fact, punched him. Though staff and neighbors in the building where she lived reported seeing no marks on her face in the hours and days after she says Johnny Depp hit her, yet she appeared in court six (6) days later with bruises on her face, asking for a temporary restraining order, which was granted. Photos of Heard from the very next day show her full face, without makeup, and not a single bruise.
As Amber Heard is a known and proven domestically violent woman, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment should and must remove Heard from their Aquaman 2 film project. They must not ignore the suffering of Heard’s victims, and must not glamorize her.
Men are victims of domestic violence, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent her from being celebrated within the entertainment industry.
Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.
