Nearly 3M sign petition to remove Amber Heard from ‘Aquaman 2 ‘


(NewsNation) — A petition to have Amber Heard removed from the movie “Aquaman 2” is gaining traction again amid her ongoing defamation trial with ex-Johnny Depp.

The petition titled “Remove Amber Heard from “Aquaman 2” has over 2,500,000 signatures, as of Friday afternoon.

“Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2,” the description of the petition reads.

“I think if there is a ton of pushback, there’s a chance they could edit her down to a smaller role in the film. I don’t know. It just doesn’t seem that likely at this point. Especially since I believe the film is gonna come out next year when all of this will sort of be wrapped up,” Caitlyn Becker, a senior reporter for said during an appearance on NewsNation’s “Banfield.”

The trial has turned into a spectacle in which Depp has testified about everything from taking pills as a child to a near mental breakdown in which the actor said he used his severed finger to write on the walls in his own blood to recount his ex-wife’s alleged lies.

Depp denies ever abusing Heard and, despite the public attention brought to his drug use and his violent text messages, he said he’s obsessed with revealing the truth and doesn’t want to disappoint those who’d looked up to him.
