The continuing trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has many fans condemning Disney and Warner Bros. for the jobs Depp has lost in previous years.
According to Depp, Heard’s apparently fraudulent charges lost him his parts as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
Depp’s representative also testified that Depp would have been paid more than $22 million for Pirates 6 before the sequel was canceled after Heard penned an op-ed for The Washington Post presenting herself as a survivor of domestic abuse.
Audio recordings, witness testimony, and other evidence presented in the trial has seemingly gotten the majority of the public on Depp’s side. On social media, many Depp fans have been lambasting Disney and Warner Bros. for cutting ties with the actor over unproven allegations. At the same time, the hashtag #ThankYouDior has been consistently trending. That’s because, throughout it all, Dior has maintained its relationship with Depp which includes prominently featuring the actor in promotional materials for his own special fragrance, Sauvage.
“It’s sad when you have to start boycotting things you love because people wanna judge before they gets the facts. At least I can forever be grateful for Dior,” says one fan using the hashtag.
