''Johnny Depp has been a phenomenal actor throughout his career. Depp was removed from the movie Pirates of the Caribbean by Walt Disney’s Company. This unfortunately is due to his ex-wife Amber Heard lying and stating that Depp beat her. It has been proven that he did not hit her, yet, that she beat on him repeatedly. She hit him with pots and pans 24/7 as if that was okay. This may come as a joke to some, but abuse towards a man or woman is not to be taken lightly. Now that this has come to light, Johnny Depp still has not been redeemed of this false news,'' the petition reads on the site. 

The petition further reads, ''Johnny Depp deserves his life back the way it was before Amber Heard came along because no actor or actress could ever say this man is not an amazing actor. If you were falsely accused of something you did not do, then there’s proof you didn’t do it and you still were treated like a bad person, wouldn’t you want Justice??''

Recently, fans started speaking out against Amber Heard and started a petition demanding makers to remove Amber from her upcoming superhero movie 'Aquaman 2'
