So the guy didn't do anything wrong, we got evidence that the woman was the one in the wrong, but he ends up losing and screwed? Ok.

Well, yeah, women don't get cancelled. 

But if you're a man and you TWEET inappropriate things 10 fucking years ago and wholeheartedly apologize for it?

Yeah, the fact that people believed Amber over Johnny, even though Amber's girlfriend from 2008-2012 also alleges that Amber was abusive to her, just really takes the cake for me. Johnny gets kicked from both Pirates of the Caribbean and Fantastic Beasts, while Amber gets to continue working on the DC franchise even after Johnny released evidence of Amber's abuse. Both Fantastic Beasts and DC are WB IP's, so why not at least kick them both off of their franchises since they both claim the other was abusive? What a sick society we've carved out for ourselves, where women are automatically believed and men are automatically ignored.

I know, it's stupid and unfair, Johnny deserves justice. Cancel culture is ridiculous.



first one was meh and the second was just bad. There was no glory to gain in this (sub)franchise.

And not only that, but Amber Heard's own stylist and cops that were reported to the scene admitted they saw no injuries on her face without any makeup on, yet the judge still believes her hogwash story and Amber still gets to keep her job despite the fact that she's a walking PR nightmare for any studio. 

Hopefully the defamation case (separate from the libel case) will prompt WB to do the right thing and fire her sorry ass, but I'm not holding my breath. If they had any integrity whatsoever, they would've fired her as soon as that cell phone audio were leaked.

Normally I'd dismiss this sort of statement as an MRA talking point and nothing more...but man it certainly seems to be the case, doesn't it?

Johnny Depp will still receive his full eight figure (at least $10 million) salary from Warner Bros. for the movie. He is getting paid more than Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law.Poor Johnny Depp. At least all his fans who will never make as much money as he does can rest easy knowing he will get well compensated for doing nothing.

He didn't do nothing, movie has been filming since mid September so he will have almost certainly filmed some scenes already.

He has filmed exactly one scene.

"According to The Hollywood Reporter, Depp filmed just one scene for “Fantastic Beasts 3” before exiting the project. Depp and Warner Bros. announced November 6 the actor was resigning from the franchise after losing his libel case against The Sun."

Surprised he only filmed one scene in nearly 2 months of filming. Director must have been mainly filming the hero character scenes the past 2 months, maybe because they were specifically waiting on the outcome of this lawsuit.
