A petition online to have Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard removed from her role in an upcoming Warner Bros. film has amassed more than 3 million signatures as of today, nearly 700,000 of which were garnered over the weekend.
A petition at Change.org that was begun in 2020 has been picking up signatures rapidly since the defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard first began on April 11.
The petition at , called “Remove from Aquaman 2,” reads, in part, as follows:

In his $50 million lawsuit, describes many incidents of that he suffered at the hands of his (then) wife , including one incident where she punched him twice in the face and another where she shattered his finger with a vodka bottle, and his finger had to be surgically reattached. He will bear the scar from that for the rest of his life.
Since Heard’s divorce from , she has systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood, repeating multiple accounts of in which she had actually abused , but lied and created of him being the abuser. About the incident during which she shattered the bones in ‘s finger and nearly severed it, causing Depp to require surgery to reattach and repair it, Heard presented a false story claiming that he cut off his finger himself, dipped it in paint and scrawled obscenities all over the walls.
Likewise, fabricated incidents of hitting her in the face when she had, in fact, punched him. Though staff and neighbors in the building where she lived reported seeing no marks on her face in the hours and days after she says hit her, yet she appeared in court six (6) days later with bruises on her face, asking for a temporary restraining order, which was granted. Photos of Heard from the very next day show her full face, without makeup, and not a single bruise.
The creator of the petition, , implores readers to “do the right thing” and “remove from Aquaman 2.”
When the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard defamation trial first began, the petition only had approximately 1.8 million signatures. But just weeks later, the petition has amassed more than 3 million signatures (3.076 million at time of publication).
