The decline in followers appears to be a reaction to an Instagram post where Amber thanked her fans for supporting her role. According to reports by Not Just Analytics, the actress lost thousands of followers after her Instagram post on January 4, 2024. This scenario is reportedly described as part of a larger PR push.

On January 4, 2024, taking to Instagram, the actress shared behind-the-scenes pictures from Aquaman 2 and thanked her fans for their support. She wrote in the post, “After all this time, Aquaman 2 made its splash (sorry, it’s too easy) 💦 Thank you to all of my fans for the overwhelming support and love in Mera’s AQ return.

For the unversed, the actress had previously claimed in her 2022 defamation trial involving Johnny Depp that Warner Bros had minimized her role in the sequel due to the controversy surrounding her divorce from Johnny Depp. In the statement, she expressed her frustrations regarding changes made to the script.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, the final DCEU film, faced significant controversy, leading to the actress’s dissatisfaction with the minimization of her role in the movie. Speaking with Empire Magazine, director James Wan defended his choice to have Mera play a smaller role in the sequel. James said, “Actors don’t necessarily know what we (directors) behind the scenes are thinking about.” According to him, the decision to make Heard have a reduced part in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was due to the sequel.
