Over 1.5 million angry fans have signed a petition to remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 movie, the Daily Mail reported Saturday.
Furious supporters of Johnny Depp said Heard has “ruined” her ex-husbands career. Because of this they say she shouldn’t be allowed to play the role in the up-coming sequel and are demanding producers drop her from the production.
Addressed to Warner Bros and DC Entertainment, the Change.org petition demanded that action “be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry.”
“Do the right thing,” it said. “Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.”
The petition was started by one Jeanne Larson, and her sentiments were echoed by 1,536,944 people as of posting. Her goal is to reach 3 million signatures.
Calls for Heard’s removal surfaced after her ex-husband Johnny Depp claimed that he suffered abuse from her hands, contradicting her allegations that he was a wife beater.
Depp, meanwhile, was asked to resign from the cast of “Fantastic Beasts” by AT&T Inc’s Warner Bros movie studio after he lost a libel case in Britain against a tabloid that called him a “wife beater.”
Both Depp, 57, and Heard, 34, have repeatedly accused one another of domestic abuse taking place during their two-year marriage that ended in 2017.
The two celebrities finalized their tumultuous divorce in January 2017.
