The petition on Change.org to have Amber Heard fired from Aquaman 2 is now closing in on 2 million signatures. This is an insane number of signatures and it leads me to believe that the vast majority of these signatures are from real people, not bots. It’s just too many signatures for this to be a “paid” online campaign.
The reason I say that is because Amber Heard has claimed that these petitions to have her removed or fired from Aquaman 2 are part of a “paid” campaign. It was then suggested that Warner Bros. Pictures isn’t taking this petition seriously.
Honestly, under normal circumstances, I’d understand Warner Bros. Pictures’ position. However, now that it’s getting close to 2 million signatures, I think this is just getting too big to be ignored.
Almost 2 million people have now signed the petition to have Amber Heard fired from Aquaman 2
As far as I stand on this, I think that until we have a definite ruling on the whole Amber Heard and Johnny Depp case, I don’t think anyone should lose their jobs. I do not believe that Johnny Depp should have been fired from Fantastic Beasts 3.
Let’s be honest, he was fired. Even though he ended up leaving the project with close to $16 million in the bank, he was still asked to leave by Warner Bros. Pictures. I don’t think he was given the option to stay.
That said, I also do not believe that Amber Heard should be fired from Aquaman 2 yet. Now, if it comes out that she really did make up the whole thing and falsely claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse, then Warner Bros. Pictures will have to fire her from the film.
