A petition to get Actress Amber Heard removed from the upcoming movie, Aquaman 2, has reached over 2.4 million signatures as the actress battles it out in court against her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
Johnny Depp filed a $50 million lawsuit against his ex-wife, claiming that the abuse allegations she made against him were vehemently not true – an argument which Amber has countersued.
The trial began almost two weeks and fans have been able to watch the case in its entirety online. Many people seem to think that the clash in court has exposed Amber in a rather negative light with employees and other witnesses all having taken to the stand saying they didn’t witness Johnny ever being violent towards his then-wife.
The father-of-two told the jury in court earlier this week that he had lost out on several movie roles due to the abuse claims, such as playing Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean and being ousted from portraying Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts, a role which Warner Bros later recast.
Fans have now started a petition to call for Amber to receive the same treatment as her ex, by having her removed from Aquaman 2, where she plays the protagonist’s love interest, Mera.
