Ever since Amber Heard lost the defamation trial to Johnny Depp, both the internet and the media have been busy criticizing the actress for her actions. The trial’s loss not only impacted her personal life but her professional life as well since fans have been demanding the removal of the actress from the sequel of Aquaman. Moreover, there have been reports that the actress has been backlisted from Hollywood. Recently, a fan decided to take the protests against the actress to Comic Con.

“I did not punch you, I was hitting you. Men can’t be victims of domestic violence. Tell the world and see how many believe you,” the fans’ sign read.
Fans believe that Amber Heard’s removal from the Aquaman sequel is justified
Fans have been demanding that Warner Bros. Discovery remove Amber Heard from the Aquaman sequel for months. They even started an online petition which has 4.6 million signatures as of now. However, since the studio has not given any information about the actress’ removal, fans have taken up other means to protest against her presence in the film. Fans believe it is only fair that the actress is removed since her defamation led to Johnny Depp losing roles in major franchises such as Fantastic Beasts.
If Warner Bros Discovery decides to keep the actress in the sequel, then it is possible that fans will boycott the film, which will lead to major losses for the studios.
