In light of new audio evidence of actress Amber Heard taunting former boyfriend Johnny Depp and admitting to domestic abuse, a Change.org petition to remove Heard from the upcoming film “Aquaman 2” has quickly gone viral.
The petition, posted earlier in the week by Jeanne Larson, is titled “Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.”
“Amber Heard has been exposed as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp,” Larson writes. “In his $50 million lawsuit, Johnny Depp describes many incidents of domestic abuse 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.”
The petition then recounts the details that have recently come to light, including Heard repeatedly mocking Depp for being a male victim of domestic abuse: “Tell the world Johnny, tell them… I Johnny Depp, a man, I’m a victim too of domestic violence… and see how many people believe or side with you.”
Heard’s accusations reportedly caused Depp to lose the iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film series.
Heard recently appeared at the women’s march in LA, and spoke against President Donald Trump at the radical female gathering.
The Change.org petition recounts,
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 abused Johnny Depp, but lied and created false accounts of him being the abuser. 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 domestic abuser, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment should and must remove Heard from their Aquaman 2 film project,” the petition summarizes. “They must not ignore the suffering of Heard’s victims, and must not glamorize a domestic abuser. Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry.
Larson concludes, “Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.”
The petition is addressed to the Senior VP of Publicity & Communications for DC Warner Brothers and has accumulated some 224,000 signatures at press time.
