Amber Heard’s new TV series recently started airing and understandably, Johnny Depp’s fans are not happy about it.
Sweeny Todd actor Depp, 57, has some seriously loyal fans, that’s for sure, and they’ve backed him and all of his projects to no end over the past few years.
Following his never-ending legal battles with ex-wife Amber Heard, 34, he has been dropped from two huge roles. In 2018 he lost the iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow. This year he stepped down from his part in the Fantastic Beasts franchise as Grindelwald, and it was subsequently announced that he would be replaced by Mads Mikkelsen.
However, his fans have stayed by Depp’s side, despite some experts claiming his place in Hollywood has been tainted and that he might never be able to repair the damage the allegations have made to his image.
Endless petitions have been made by the actor’s fanatic fans, some calling for him to be reinstated in Pirates of the Caribbean, and another pleading for Amber Heard to be sacked from her role as Mera in Aquaman 2.
Now, Depp’s fans have taken it upon themselves to boycott Amber Heard’s newest TV series, ironically called The Stand.
The Stephen King adaptation aired on CBS this past Thursday, and Heard plays a supporting role in the big-budget production.
Depp’s Twitter fanbase decided to spend 24 hours streaming his movies in support of him, and in some form of protest against his ex-wife, calling it ‘Deppcember’
Twitter was crowded with hashtags along the lines of ‘JusticeForJohnnyDepp’, ‘Deppcember’ and ‘DeppMovieNight’ on Thursday, with endless fans sharing which films they’d decided to tune into.
Some had gone for lighter films like Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or Edward Scissorhands, while others had opted for Sweeny Todd or What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?
In regards to Amber’s show, ratings aren’t yet available, but so far it seems that the reviews haven’t exactly been glowing, regardless of her involvement.
However, its unlikely that any streaming of Johnny’s films would’ve massively impacted the CBS show.
