Petition to kick Amber Heard off Aquaman 2 gathers 1.5M signatures – New York Post

More than a million angry fans have signed a petition urging Hollywood honchos to boot Amber Heard off the movie “Aquaman 2” — saying she “ruined” ex-husband Johnny Depp’s career.

The petition against the 34-year-old actress, who was locked in a messy libel case that Depp ultimately lost earlier this month, had garnered 1.5 million signatures as of Friday.

“[Heard] has systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood,” the Change.org petition rages. “He will bear the scar from that for the rest of his life.”

Depp was asked to resign from JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts franchise after a British judge found allegations that he’s a wife-beater to be “substantially true” — prompting fans of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star to circulate the petition, which aims to get 3 million signatures.

The petition also accuses the actress of lying and “creating false accounts of [Depp] being the abuser.”

Last week, the actress spoke out about those calling for her firing — saying she intends to work on the movie anyway.

“Paid rumors and paid campaigns on social media don’t dictate [casting decisions] because they have no basis in reality,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “Only the fans actually made ‘Aquaman’ and ‘Aquaman 2’ happen. I’m excited to get started next year.”
