I reported earlier this week that the petition was getting very close to reaching 1.5 million signatures, and it’s now crossed that mark, which is kind of crazy to be honest. Over 1.5 million people have now signed this petition which Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly not taking any notice of.
They and Amber Heard herself have referred to as inflated and “web chatter”. Heard said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that these petitions demanding her removal from Aquaman 2 were: “Paid rumours and paid campaigns on social media”.
The Petition to have Amber Heard removed from Aquaman 2 has now reached over 1.5 million signatures
Here’s what Amber Heard said about the petitions in that recent interview:
Paid rumours and paid campaigns on social media don’t dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality. Only the fans actually made Aquaman and Aquaman 2 happen. I’m excited to get started next year.
I’m really not sure if they could have managed to get 1.5 million ‘bots’ or ‘fake people’ to sign this petition. I think the numbers speak for themselves. There are a lot of people out there who do not want to see Amber Heard in Aquaman 2, and they are making themselves *ahem* heard.
