Good morning. The Aquaman petition is now at 617,591. Just amazing - looking forward to the explanation in VA that Adam has created hundreds of thousands of bots to support Johnny (can we also get a look at how many fake accounts follow her on instagram).

Good to see Damain Echols - a man who knows a thing or two about injustice - on JD's instagram.

Good Evening Zoners. I have closely followed Johnny's genius work and life for so many years, like all of us here. He is a gracious, caring man. I am just so heartsick with him getting outright screwed so much lately. I can remember so many times watching as he was careful to take extra time with his admirers or 'bosses', with children, especially sick children, handicapped people, and so many more. He freely gives of himself to us. Many charge big bucks for autographs, etc. Not Johnny! He does his best to get to everyone, even as his security pulls him away.
It is a travesty what he has reaped for his loving character and personality. He has endured injustice now from Disney, Warner Bros, the UK high court, the media, and most especially from the vile ex. She has karma coming to hit her hard!! I really hope that she gets confused with all her lies on the stand in VA and finally gets slapped with perjury, her speciality.
I am just heartsick big time, but as they say, What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Bless you, Johnny!
I have been trying to help however I can, like many of you here. This has been a big blow, but this helps my heart some to try to help. I have signed all of the petitions and been posting on Instagram Lots in Support of Johnny! I also found some Loreal products that I had missed. They are In the Trash!!
I am so happy to see so many people, all over the world, crying 'Justice For Johnny Depp'! It does my heart good and helps me believe in society again. I think that these big corporations may not act, but they will see the huge numbers of people behind Johnny. I hope they can foresee their Loss of Profits coming! So many people are refusing to go see Fantastic Beasts, Pirates, and Aquaman, if they make it to theaters.
I would like to thank all of the contributors to this immense thread. I come here several times a day for updates. I find such pertinent information.
Thank you most especially, Johnny, for standing in front of the world, taking a big chance, and telling your story. You are helping true DV Survivors, especially the forgotten men. The Truth will come out, despite the tremendous push back from the justice system in the UK and the media. You Will Prevail!
I stand with you, Johnny. Thank you for your letters to us. You are most gracious. Much love and respect. :namaste:

Bizarrely, it seems Fantastic Beasts official accounts are gaining followers, not sure if bots or if the implication is somewhat tasteless. Yet the backlash is real, the petition is blowing up, and people are furious.

I just think that the way WB phrased their confirmation that the role is being recast is quite ambiguous, almost purposefully so. They don’t say he will be recast in Fantastic Beasts 3. What they say is that the role will be recast before the third film hits theaters in 2022. Are they leaving themselves room to change their mind? Or are they letting Johnny finish shooting FB3 or reducing his role and then depending on Virginia, they have him return?

Seems really hopeful I know and it would be an insult to Johnny in a way and I’m not sure that he would be fine and dandy with that.

What I do know is that Johnny wouldn’t approve of people boycotting the film and by extension the cast and crew for something that is out of their control. But that’s kind of the default answer people usually resort to, I just don’t think boycotting things ever has the impact people think it does.

But bombarding WB, Warner Media accounts, etc and trending will perhaps move the needle imo.

The same from me, Justintime. Well said!
Lbock, "idiot" is putting it mildly. I don't think I have that much restraint.

Yep...here is comes. I would be a little worried if I were Amber Heard right now but she has only herself to blame. I have no pity at all for her.

She is going to continue to play the victim. What no one ever points out is that there is a reason so many people are angry. She lied. And now she will spin this the he is responsible for the minority of absolutely vile comments (he would never want anyone to be hateful to her - grateful though he is for the support).

I do think that now would be a great moment for one of his side to say "Johnny is humbled by the support but he would never wish anyone to write hateful words to another human being. His own children have been abused in this way and he would never wish it on anyone - all he seeks is truth and justice."

Ya know..if it were anyone else I would agree but what she has done to his reputation, his finances and family is unforgiveable.

I totally agree, ForeverYoung. I have no sympathy for liars or abusers like her. I have not attacked anyone online, but I have made my opinion clearly known and understood.

I may be way off base here but I think the crew “extension” where box office receipts are concerned is not applicable. I believe the crew (surely the most vulnerable) on any film has already been paid for their work. Don’t know if they get any residuals beyond the services rendered during production.
Cast members sign salary contracts (granted, that may include residuals, back-end deals and other percentages for their contributions) but they’ve been paid for the work they contributed to what is essentially a finished product by the time it is on the screen. Hence, Johnny’s frequently mentioned sentiments about having to agree to hustle films after he no longer has anything to do with what is being marketed.

The only ones impacted by a film’s box office receipts are the suits: Warner Bros Productions, WB Media, other executive producers, producers, and Distributors. In other words, investors. That is where the money came from, that is where the big profits go, and targeting box office is really the only way to send a message to that cowardly, hypocritical lot. I doubt any of them could care less about or be bothered by pesky fan-based emails; just press “delete”. And, imho, the same goes for any production that sees fit to pay AH for her onscreen services.

I agree with you, AdeleAgain. But, ForeverYoung’s last comment: “Ya know..if it were anyone else I would agree but what she has done to his reputation, his finances and family is unforgiveable.”, just tears at my heart and head.

My question is where the h——— is Johnny’s PR agent??? Why isn’t he/she/they rebutting these issues or at least reminding folks - especially those seemingly (but maybe not) just “passing through”- of the truth. I’ve been reading convoluted versions of the Judgement all over the place as well. Seems, since the Judgement was made public, more people are picking up and relying on bits and pieces they’ve stumbled upon here and there, and showing a greater willingness to see truth in the “toxic relationship” angle as well as the follow-up comments “they were both violent” and linking Johnny’s drug use to likely domestic violence!!

That fiery initial reaction (from Schillings, I believe) needs to be elaborated upon and to have exposure akin to being plastered on billboards in Times Square! Come on - get creative! Isn’t this the very time a shy, legendary actor needs the steady, pointed, pushback PR Intervention he’s been paying for all these years? It’s like mini-Nicol’s are materializing everywhere spouting his inexcusable, self-indulgent verbal foray into unpardonable territory for someone sworn to honor objectivity and dispense well-considered justice.

Sorry (not really), AdeleAgain, but your post really hit a nerve . . . Thanks!

If he were to say something like that, he would open himself to being criticized for hypocrisy. The Bettany texts could be used as an example of hateful words and there are others.
People have said his words were venting to a friend, and that may be so, but it would not be consistent with a call for no hateful words.
Hypocrisy is something that the public can usually recognise and reject.

I don’t think Johnny has had proper consistent PR representation for a long time. Robin Baum doesn’t seem to work with him accept on big studio red carpets (ages ago). He has a one off it seems for GQUK article. Adam arranged the RS one and we’ve only heard his voice in any media

I can’t tell you the last time I’ve see “a rep for Johnny said...” except in a legal context (for a long time). I think the last was “drunk on MOTOE red carpet that he wasn’t”. And on tour that he didn’t have cancer.
