Johnny Depp's fans have lashed out at Amber Heard after the US film star lost his court libel battle against his former wife, who earlier wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post in which she spoke about being a victim of domestic violence.
In an apparent Twitter war with Heard, they described her as "the most forgettable actress" and an "embarrassment to strong women", with one netizen pointing the finger at the "Aquaman" star's "lies and manipulations".
This is disgusting she doesnt deserve a career at all— Mystic Nero (@Nero_Kurosaki1) November 7, 2020
A lot of DC fans are outraged by the Injustice delivered upon Johnny Depp by the British tabloid, The Sun, and the blatant lies (evident to anyone). We do not want Amber Heard involved in upcoming DC films. She goes, or we go. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp .@DCEUNews #ReleaseTheSnyderCut pic.twitter.com/Kb2PgXDJcO— TruthSeeker (@Ilovepolls6) November 3, 2020

Amber Heard smiling and smirking as she listens to herself admitting to abusing Johnny Depp.

Another user demanded more signatures for an online petition called "Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2".
Yes!!! Since day one we have all stood with him! We all saw through Amber Heard’s lies and manipulations! She has a very dark soul and is a disgusting human being. I have faith JD will win his appeal and come out on top. WB will regret their decision.— Michele Vela (@TraiJolee) November 7, 2020

She's the most forgettable actress. Name most other actresses, and if you've seen a film of theirs, you could recall at least a small part of it. I watched Aquaman, she may as well have not been in it, I don't remember her part at all.— vic hates-the-sun waldman 🤖🏴☠️ (@vic_h_7) November 3, 2020
Depp has, meanwhile, revealed that he was asked to resign from his role as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts movie franchise after a UK court's decision to reject a defamation lawsuit he lodged to strip himself of the "wife-beater" label given to him by The Sun.
In testimony at the High Court of London in July, Heard claimed that Depp had repeatedly threatened to kill her, allegations that the 57-year-old actor rejected as "sick and completely untrue".
He insisted that it was Heard who was violent toward him, as his legal team accused her of fabricating her injuries and complaints.
