It was revealed that Dior wouldn’t be removing Johnny Depp from their Sauvage commercials and fans and supporters of Depp’s praised the company of their decision. They took to Twitter to praise Dior for not choosing to fire the actor and keep him as the face of their Eau De Parfum.
It really hasn’t been easy for Johnny Depp in the past few years, however, it seems like it might have been getting even worse ever since he lost his libel case against The Sun recently. The actor could find it hard to get a role in the future because of the recent ruling.
However, there is one company that seems to be standing by the actor, and that is Dior, who have opted not to have Johnny Depp removed from their Sauvage commercials, which Johnny Depp fans and supporters have really appreciated.
As the money for their Eau De Parfum has been rolling in, Dior has been standing by Johnny Depp and refused to replace him from their ads for the product. Fans and supporters took to Twitter to congratulate Dior for taking what many people believe is a brave decision.

Dior basically just told The Sun to go fuck themselves with Johnny Depp's voice in that new ad and I'm fully here for it!

Dior Sauvage, as Fragrance of the year, is a VERY well deserved award! 🖤 It has such a GREAT scent, they absolutely nailed it.
Oh and by the way. Johnny Depp as the perfume's face? FABULOUS, MARVELOUS advertising. Kudos to @Dior. This is how a confident company handles things.

Yesterday, while watching Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, within the first 30 minutes, I saw Johnny Depp’s @Dior Sauvage ad. It was a fabulous way to start the day. Thank you @Dior for giving male victims of DV a voice by continuously supporting Johnny Depp.

Well done to @Dior for not ditching Johnny Depp. A good and sensible decision.

It’s all been revealed that Dior has made quite a bit of money recently from their sales of the Sauvage Eau De Parfum, which might be the main reason why they opted not to have Johnny Depp removed from their ads. That said, it’s nice to see that they didn’t do what Warner Bros. Pictures opted to do with Depp.
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, Warner Bros. Pictures asked Johnny Depp to step down from the role of Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3. He’s since been replaced by Mads Mikkelsen.
