Amber Heard Responds to JK Rowling & Warner Bros Defending Johnny Depp's 'Fantastic Beasts' Role

Amber Heard has broken her silence after JK Rowling and Warner Bros defended their decisions to keep her ex husband Johnny Depp in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald after she accused him of physically abusing her.

The 31-year-old Aquaman actress took to Instagram on Thursday night (December 7) to call out the author and production company for only using certain parts of the the former couple’s statement from 2016 while defending their decision.

“For the record, this was our FULL joint statement. To pick and choose certain lines and quote them out of context, is just not right. Women, continue to stand up and stay strong. Love, Amber,” Amber captioned her post along with their statement.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters on November 16, 2018.

    They clearly stated that they know more than the public.
    Another lie from Amber Heard – she omitted the last line from their statement: “There will be no further public statements about this matter”.
    But of course the media didn’t notice it.

    Bitch, just move on with your fucking fake story…

  • FlakesofSunlite

    Warner Bros. should have stayed with JK Rowling’s 1st Choice, Francois Arnaud, for Grindelwald. He was a major upgrade from Johnny Depp.

  • jana

    Who is François Arnaud and how could he possibly be an upgrade from the biggest movie star in the world?

  • jana

    “after she accused him of physically abusing her.”

    Which he denied & I believe him.

  • Lucky Alexander

    Amber “breaks her silence”…what a joke…Amber hasn’t shut her big yap over this (her allegations against Johnny Depp) despite the non disclosure agreement she signed. But, she’s been talking about it in the most cunning way…innuendo. She has rallied her forces to make it seem like she is so brave and such a warrior for women’s issues…”stay strong, women.” Give me a break! She’s been on the cover of 200 Women, giving speeches on behalf of the abused women, lying about donating her time and money to causes for women and children…she never shuts up! But the best part is SHE was arrested for beating the crap out of Tasya van Ree in front of a cop in Seattle…was taken to jail, charged with domestic abuse and spent the night in jail. Oh yes, a fine role model…ha ha ha!!! Going to demand she be dropped as Mera from Aquaman? Didn’t think so…

  • Sansa Squad

    so he lied in the joint statement?

  • Sansa Squad

    good for her for continuing to speak out even though his deranged fans continue (and will continue) to attack her for it.

  • Lucky Alexander

    She has nothing to speak out about…except HER role in physically abusing her partner. Answer that one.

  • Sansa Squad

    haven’t they both said that was a misunderstanding? that the cop was a homophobe or something and misinterpreted their body language…? AND they remain friends? not to mention, even if it were true, it *still* doesn’t mean she deserves to be abused in her next relationship (she says in her own statement she wishes the best for johnny, after all…) and on top of that, what kind of person is he really if he would marry someone who “beat the crap out of” her previous partner?? bringing that up as if it somehow excuses what he did to her is as illogical as it is irrelevant.

  • Sansa Squad

    Do you know how to use Google, Jana?

  • Sansa Squad

    she omitted a lot of lines from the statement to emphasize the ones people like YOU haven’t seemed to notice – namely the one that says they both acknowledge she wasn’t lying!!

  • Sansa Squad

    would truly love a study on the psychosis of d*pp stans/apologists and diehard tr*mp supporters bc y’all’ve really got the same damn disease.

  • Lucky Alexander

    Do you know how to use Google? Look up the facts! The cop was/is a proud lesbian herself. Body language doesn’t include bruises and scratches and a necklace torn off her throat. Can you youtube? It’s there in Amber’s own words before a judge. Tasha acted like real abused partner…too scared to leave and tell the truth. Johnny didn’t know about her abusive nature until it was too late. And answer your own question…Amber claims Johnny was abusive throughout their entire relationship… yet she married him. And I didn’t bring it up to justify anything…only to point out what a disgusting hypocrite Amber is. Get it, now?

  • Sansa Squad

    So they’re both shitty people!! Still doesn’t mean he didn’t abuse her byeeeeee

  • Lucky Alexander

    Deaf, dumb and blind!

  • Lucky Alexander

    No one who supports Depp supports Trump.

  • Sansa Squad

    Same. Damn. Disease.

  • Sansa Squad

    I find it deeply disturbing that you so gleefully recount a case of abuse as justification for a separate case OF ABUSE in some backwards defense of a shitbag you admire. So she’s a hypocrite!!! Does that absolve him of anything??? Your blind insistence that you know more than me tells me all I need to know about why you’re defending Johnny…

  • Sansa Squad

    YOU AH!!!

  • Dorothyfromoz

    I wish she would just go away. Apparently she can’t get publicity for her acting roles so she has to tailgate off of Depp’s fame……still.

  • jana

    People like you are more comparable to Trump supporters.

  • jana

    Actually, it says “NEITHER PARTY has made false accusations for financial gains” not “Scumber Turd didn’t lie about abuse at the hands of Legendary Depp”

  • jana

    The person named “François Arnaud” has remained irrelevant even after I Googled him before I posted my reply.

  • jana

    Where?

  • jana

    “what kind of person is he really if he would marry someone who “beat the crap out of” her previous partner??”

    Uhh, that’s why she wiped the DV arrest off her record before she started dating him in late 2011: http://www.tmz.com/2016/06/08/amber-heard-erase-domestic-violence-record/

  • Lili

    I swear the white feminists are so FULL of themselves. This bitch beat her ex and get praises. Fuck her. She can be your hero, she will never be mine. She is nothing but a conniving bitch. Her and her following of sheeps are nothing.

  • Lili

    More like Heard fans/sheeps

  • Lili

    She is so full of herself and broke she probably think bad publicity is good publicity. Glad her movie tanked, she wasn’t the right person to play Mera.

  • Lili

    I don’t know how people can’t see that she is toxic and a sociopath.
    I have a sister like that if things do go her way she makes up the craziest things to make you look bad.
    She self harm and accuses others and tries to physically harm people around her she deems weaker.
    I grew up with a toxic person so I know their MO

  • cafeast

    I love this woman, she is so talented and gorgeous.
    I have also seen the images and that video of his abuse over her. It was heartbreaking. Most women have no patience toward her b/c she is a stunning blond bombshell and that’s the type lesser women always hate and want to bring down.
    This is why the female gender is the weaker one.

    Depp needs to get castrated and his hands need to be cut off for assaulting and terrorizing this beautiful woman.

  • cafeast

    Arnaud is the much much hotter version of Depp and much more talented. And sexy. And darkly mysterious. He made incest look palatable!
    But he hardly looks Swedish and would look shitty as a blonde. I would have cast Gustav Skarsgard in a wig or maybe his brother Alex. Or maybe Viggo if they wanted older.
    Viggo is Danish-American I believe, and looks Nordic.

  • Kat123

    Amber pleaded guilty to domestic violence. Why do you support her when she was arrested and pleaded guilty to abuse?

    You people are sick in the head.
    You want Depp’ s career ruined because of allegations that were later withdrawn by the accuser yet you happily give a free pass to Heard who admitted in a court of law that she was guilty !

    Oh let the excuses begin…. Smh

  • cafeast

    Jana is a trailer park variety whore’s name. It is disgusting. You should change it.

  • cafeast

    Are you jelly, lena? b/c you’re fat and ugly? Is that jel I am seeing here?

  • Kat123

    She pleaded guilty to abuse in a court of law. Why make excuses for her but demand Depp s career be ruined when all allegations against him were withdrawn by the accuser ?

  • Kat123

    It is more disturbing that you make excuses for Heard who pleaded guilty in a court of law to abuse yet feel it is Depp who’s career and life needs to be ruined based on allegations that were later withdrawn by the accuser.

    Something is not right in your head.

  • Kat123

    A campaign calling for her to be recast and dropped from Aquaman should be launched.

  • Bella$wan

    Just shut the f*ck up would you!

  • Kat

    Him closing/shutting doors is abuse ??? maybe we didn’t see the same thing ? Did he insult her ? Hit her ? No, he ignored her to death. Thats why she is bitter because she could blackmail him out of millions and she still as broke as she was when they meet.

  • Kat

    Maybe you lack something call a “critical mind”. You are suppose to learn that in school.

  • Kat

    Because she is a white woman and white feminists only stand up for white women even when they are proven liars who won’t sit for a deposition.
    I wish Depp didn’t settle with her, he needed to drag her up and down in court (sorry if that triggers her sheeps) and show all the evidences of her trying to blackmail him with false accusations.
    This bitch has no career so she wants him in the gutter with her.

  • Kat

    I know Amber Heard reads everything about herself on the internet, so this is for you Amber : you are past 30 and your carrer ain’t shit, maybe you can f*ck a producer or two for another shot at a high budget movie but your career is always going to be shit because you lack TALENT. And the market is full of younger, more talented actress then you’ll ever be they are going to get every roles you want and you are just going to fade into obscurity where you belong.
    For the amber cult following, waste no time commenting on my post I don’t answer to sheeps.

  • Nikki Noffsinger

    This is all just disgusting on her part. She divorced him. She got her settlement that she wanted. She called him violent yet when it came out she too, was violent in a past relationship but it was okay for her to be abusive. Now that he’s signed to a big name production (and hello, she’s already got cast for Aquaman-which why, I will never have any clue.) but I think it is her way to not only get on the bandwagon here with all these other (and I am so not putting down the women who have came out against the sexual harassment and abuse they have suffered) to get some fame and further mentally and emotionally abuse her ex spouse. Forget that it is Johnny Depp-she’s behaving in a way that is narcissistic. How many times has he mentioned her in the press since they divorced? How many times has he been quoted or using social media forums to throw shade at her? None. Yet she makes a very public statement when he’s cast in a big production.

    *supposed

  • Sansa Squad

    I’m not making excuses for anyone. as we’ve seen repeatedly (most recently with al franken vs. tr*mp and roy moore), the people who admit to misconduct have their lives and careers (rightfully) ruined while those who deny wrongdoing are allowed to thrive no matter how many allegations stack up against them. I’m tired of hollywood protecting men just because they make people a lot of money. I work in this industry and know people who are connected to both d*pp and heard and with everything I know I’m inclined to believe her in this situation. honestly, believe what you want – it’s obvious you’re going to anyway – but I truthfully don’t know how anyone who watched that leaked video (which most of you have reduced to him “slamming a few doors”) and not be horrified. I know what DV looks like and I cannot get that video out of my head. I’m choosing to believe her because if I’m wrong I can live with myself – if I believed him and was wrong, I don’t think I could.

  • agus

    Amber and Trump’s supporters have one thing in common – for them the facts don’t matter – there is enouth evidences, court documents to know that Amber isn’t victim of DV but her supporter like Trump’s are spreading lies and misinterpretations.

  • Sansa Squad

    didn’t his slimy managers admit he abused her and they helped cover it up like the SECOND they were off his payroll?? these guys all lie for and protect each other until it doesn’t benefit them anymore. I’m not making excuses for whatever she’s done in her past (tbh it makes sense that they’d end up together – only someone who’s unhinged would find johnny depp post-2010 appealing in the first place) but given everything that’s come out, I still think he’s a piece of shit. and maybe she is too, but he’s getting a pass for bullshit sexist hollywood reasons, and she’s getting a “pass” in the interest of believing victims, which I can live with.

  • agus

    He is one of the nicest person in Hollywood, it’s why he is so openly supported by people in Hollywood and unfortunately it’s why his narcissist-socio:ath ex-wife took advantage of him. Read more about them and their case.
