#AmberHeardIsALiar.” Another tweeted, “How come Ray Fisher have to leave Flash for calling out abuse but Amber Heard gets to stay in Aquaman 2 after committing abuse? Respect our values and intelligence as an audience or expect #BoycottAquaman2 calls to grow louder. #WeSaidEnough #DV hotline:@ndvh
800−799−SAFE.” A third wrote, “By hiring Amber Heard, WB sends the message that it doesn’t matter if a woman abuses a man. Tell them they are wrong. #BoycottAquaman2 #FireAmberHeard.”

The hate for the actress Amber Heard is largely based on several unproven allegations against her. The lawyers of Johnny Depp had also accused her of a “calculated and manipulative lie.”
Although, the production house seems to be very firm on its decision of allowing the actress to play her role in the superhero franchise.
On a related note, the actor, Depp has also lost his other well-known parts as Captain Jack Sparrow in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
On the other hand, Danish star Mads Mikkelsen who has replaced Depp as the wizard in the superhit fantasy franchise said in a report by PTI, “I mean, obviously, they were going to do the film, and obviously he was not involved anymore.”
Mikkelsen further added, “But I didn’t have a dog in that fight. And I don’t know what happened (in his private life), and I don’t know if it was fair, him losing the job, but I just knew that the show was going on, and I would’ve loved to have talked to him about it if I had the chance, but I just don’t know him in that sense.”
