The Petition To Fire Amber Heard From Aquaman 2 Is Now Reaching 1.5 Million Signatures

The petition to have Amber Heard fired as Mera from Aquaman 2 is now reaching 1.5 million signatures. That said, Heard is still claiming that this petition is fake and that the numbers are inflated.

This petition soared past 1 million signatures soon after it was revealed that Johnny Depp had lost his libel case against The Sun in the UK courts. Depp was then asked to step down from the role of Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3 by Warner Bros. Pictures.

People then started asking why Amber Heard wasn’t also asked to step down from the role of Mera in Aquaman 2. However, it’s being reported by multiple outlets that Heard’s role in the upcoming Aquaman sequel is actually being expanded.

This petition is on and is quickly becoming one of the most signed petitions on the platform. However, it’s been reported that Warner Bros. Pictures is not paying any attention to this.

If rumours are true, they think that the numbers in this petition are inflated and that it shouldn’t be taken seriously. That said, even if the numbers are a bit inflated, it would be far too difficult to fake over 1.5 million signatures.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Heard opened up about the petitions online to have her fired from Aquaman 2. Here’s what she said: “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.”

    Leave amber heard alone!! And I bet the petitions were all woman jeolous of her!! Where is the me too movement now??? Johnny Depp has a drug & alcohol problem and beats woman. Why has he never kept a relationship??

      First of all, having substance abuse issues doesn’t automatically equals physical violence. I recommend you to avoid generalization. Second, there actually are NO (0- nada) proof he’s been abusive. You need to realize that not all women tell the truth as not all men do. Also, the fact that you think the people who sign the petion are only jealous women show how absolutely UNeducated you are on the subject. If you were to do basic research on the matter, you would realize that women AND men support JD. I understand it may be difficult to believe JD if you haven’t seen a lot of info about the case. Now, before talking about it again so ignorantly, try and watch all videos from this person and mostly this video:
      He has been doing a very in-deph work about the case. Oh and will HEAR audio tapes where Amber for example, ADMITS to physical violence and “not being able to promise that she won’t do it again” and also you will HEAR her NEVER saying that he was abusive to her. Now, do your fricking homework before writing absolute nonsense. Oh and, he never kept a relationship? You mean like probably 85% of ALL people around the world? Btw 14 years with Vanessa Paradis seems long to me..

      That is the most hypocritical can ignorant thing I’ve hard all week, how dare you mention the Me Too movement in this case, that’s outright disgusting, you really need to understand what that is about and do your research on this particular case.

    • Alba D'Agostino

      do u know johnny depp? i don t think so. Many people signed the petitions because believe he is the victim and not a wife beater. Amber got serious problem with alcohol and drug not johnny deep . Is so clear made up all this story to make publicity on her because she is nobody and before marry johnny depp nobody knows who was her. She got HISTORY OF ASSAULTING HER E GIRLFRIEND AND THIS IS A FACT! If he was so bad why she was married with him all this time ? also where are the REAL PROOF of her been hitted ? is no proof. The sun accused johnny without seeing johhny depp doing the fact , he just accusing him about something he never did. Johnny depp isn t that type of person and you can see that. Is her who are history , bad reputations and paying people to get on her side. Come on.. wake up !

      And I bet you’re a dumb child who hasn’t done any research on the case at hand, you just like aquaman because you like to f*ck yourself to it in the cinema, but don’t worry I’m sure the film will be fine without abusive scum in it.

      Hush now child.

      Much love xx

      Where is the MeToo movement now you ask? I don’t know why don’t you ask Amber who decided to abuse it for her own gains? Such as taking someone else’s rape story and making it her own. Or how about fabricating stories and constantly changing them. I feel sorry that you are so tricked into believing this manipulative woman who will do whatever she wants to get her way. Such as using her own family, physically abusing a man and using him to get famous and calling everyone around her liars.

    “social media don’t dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality.”

    She is right here. If you’ve seen Warner Bro’s mostly female staff you wouldn’t be surprised they’re taking this route.
    The thing is, after this movie bombs because of Heard, future directors will take another route, picking a different actress who isn’t known for pooping in beds and being a psychopath.

      We heard the same thing before Aquaman and it turned out to be DC‘s most successful movie,ever.
      Truth is that Depp‘s paid defamation campaign just doesn‘t reach any meaningful number. They are orchestrated by PR teams, that make all efforts to make it look big, but in truth nobody cares.

    She clearly states in the recordings that she was the instigator and aggressor. He tried getting away when she became violent. Her true colors showed she’s an arrogant and abusive person. She doesn’t deserve to still be included in that family-friendly movie.

    I do not believe that Amber Heard should be fired from Aquaman 2. People, don’t you think she has paid enough in having to put up with the abuse, mental and physical that she was brave enough to stand up to in her marriage. Let her be. Let her get on with her life.

    • Anonymous

      It says right in the article that Depp was asked to step down from the role of Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3. He lost a job and his reputation took a hit because of Heard’s lies and manipulation. Not to mention the physical and psychological abuse he received from her. She on the other hand is barely suffering of any repurcussions. In a just world she also should lose a job and preferrably go straight to prison.

    • Not a bot

      She is an abuser and should be fired from Aquaman 2. I signed the petition, not robot or russian. If she thinks that we are all paid boys, she is definitely very delusional. Even if the WB doesn’t fire that piece of shit, at least 1.5 Millions of people won’t be watching the movie. And who the hell goes alone to cinemas, so around 3 Millions of people.

      I am not going to spend a single cent for anything that includes this human trash.

  5. Sherrie Barfield

    She is just as much a abuser as she claims he is so why should she be any better. I hope they replace her with Emila Clark I think she would be awesome

  6. Mr random

    She was abusive in the relationship aswell but you know equality only works one way blame it all on the man unless ‘women’ gets less pay then all hell breaks loose

  7. John Jupp

    She should be fired. A serial domestic abuser with no regret at her actions. I will not be watching Aquaman2 at the cinema or streaming platform.

    • Roz

      Dont you realize that something is fake if it starts to soar after the verdict, that found Depp to be the DV abuser ? Either it is fake or the people behind it dont care at all for the DV abuse, they just want Amber defamed by all means necessary. So in either way, it is BS !

  8. Nibbles

    They won’t fire her because they’re worried the whole ‘metoo’ movement will come for them and they’ll look like mysoginists.

  9. Loki

    Your one of the last newsoutlets still reporting about the so called petition. There is no way to verify the people behind the signing accounts, that‘s why you cannot take it seriously.

    • ableir

      Oh okay but are we supposed to take Amber seriously? The woman who admits on tapes that SHE starts physical fights and can’t promise NOT to do it again? The one who said “sometimes I’m so mad I lose it” and that SHE throw pots and pans and NEVER say in hours and hours of audio tapes (btw she’s recorded hours of tapes without people knowing, who does that? + a few are with JD’s knowledge) that Johnny was ever violent towards her? Oh okay I see.

      I signed the petition and shared it and the only reason you are not able to trace why it has so many people signing is because there is a lot of sharing of the petition on reddit which usually remains below news radars

      Last time I checked, I wasn’t a robot neither was I paid, I have followed the case for long and there are tapes of amber admitting to abuse

      • Anonymous

        Hello. Not a robot or paid and signed the petition. I am aproud feminist and think Amber Heard should be kicked out of Aquaman 2 as she does nothing for the cause against domestic violence. The evidence is there. She is the abuser.

    • Anonymous

      Oh you better believe it, Me and many people have shared and signed the petition but I guess thats not enough for you , still Im not a ficking robot and neither have I been paid, you better believe that we are gonna keep supporting Johhne Depp, Hes already reached the reddit Hall Of Fame and many people who didnt know him before do now, the numbers are just gonna get higher

  10. Rene

    So many men are canceled because of their terrible, criminal behavior toward women, but we’re supposed to have different standards when the victim is a man? I don’t think so. When women lie about abuse, they don’t deserve support. When they’re recorded admitting to their abuse and gaslighting, they don’t deserve support. When they use a movement like #metoo to perpetuate their false narrative and further abuse their victim, THEY DON’T DESERVE SUPPORT!!!!! Amber Heard is a criminal with a recorded history of abuse. She’s a stain, not a super hero and no child should be watching that violent, narcissistic, domestic violent criminal! She needs to go!

    She needs to be sacked simple fact of it, She is the definition of a domestic abuser she’s the type of girl if it happens to hear she’ll see that persons life ruined as she’s done to Johnny depp but she seems to get a free pass to do it, What she’s deserves is to rot in prison cell.

    I also signed the petition and I ain’t no god dam robot

    The movie.
    It’s literally that simple. We, the people, hold the power. Not the sick psychopaths running hollywood.

  13. s.macleod

    If Amber Heard is in it, I definitely won’t pay to see it. And there’s a fair chance I won’t see it. I’ve never seen Justice League after the trash that was Man of Steel and Batman versus Superman.

    I’ve seen her testimony in court and she’s a lying psychopath.

  14. Cat

    Amber is delusional. The leaked audio recordings of her verbally, emotionally and (admitting to) physically abusing Johnny is all over the internet. Amber – I signed the petition because of your lies, attempts to smear Johnny and your fake victim persona overall. Go listen to the tapes. You sound like an absolute psycho b*tch! We all know you were violent and abusive, and toward your sister as well.

    I used to be a fan of Amber, but she’s lost me for life. I won’t be paying for anything related to her or Warner Bros from now on.

  15. Shane

    I signed it as I don’t support domestic abusers. I was not paid and she needs to be held accountable for her extortion attempt, lies, and now her defamation. She can deny it, but the reality is, you out! Warner Brothers actions are saying, they support domestic abusers and lyers. Maybe all their movies should also be boycotted like AM2 will be.

  16. Carolina

    This petition is not fake. People work very hard to spread the petition on social media. Some of the hottest topics right now is to get Amber Heard of the Aquaman movie, you can see that on tiktok, instagram and twitter. No one wants a liar and a abuser seen on screen. She reminds me of Donald Trump now that she is accusing the petition being fake.

  17. Anonymous

    I signed the petition because he got fired over his as you put it “private life” and she did not. Not because i presume to know who is or is not guilty but because i still belive in equility and so should you!!!

  18. NinaRose

    I Think Warner Bros should just fired Amber Heard From Aquaman 2, Just Replaced Amber Heard with Jessica Madsen as Mera In Aquaman 2

  19. Dwane Ernst

    Yes they should fire amber heard she lied in court about jhonnys character and claimed he was an abusive partner when facts showed he wasn’t and he lost more than 1 role because of it so HELL yes she should be fired for her role in aquaman 2 and other roles as well

Have your say...
