The petitions against Amber Heard are gathering thousands of signatures after the leaked audio in which, according to reports, the actress admits to beating former husband Johnny Depp.
"A liar and an abuser, a shame for women," begins one of the two Change.org campaigns to eliminate Amber Heard, 33, from her role as a global spokeswoman for the cosmetics brand L’Oréal.
The petition has accumulated more than 5,000 signatures, so it is in the middle of its 7,500 target. A second campaign to eliminate Heard has accumulated more than 4,300 signatures, with a goal of 5,000.
"After the shameful announcement of L’Oréal with Amber Heard during the Oscars, people began to be interested," writes the creator of the petition Federica P. in a publication.
"Amber Heard has been claiming to be a victim of abuse by her husband Johnny Depp for years," writes the creator of the second campaign, Hillary Deanna. "In light of the recently leaked recorded sessions between Mrs. Heard and Mr. Depp, it has attracted the attention of many who, in fact, went the other way around."
The sessions refer to an audio confession obtained by the Daily Mail in January.
"I'm sorry I didn't hit you in the face with a proper slap, but I was hitting you, I wasn't hitting you." Baby, you're not beaten, "reports the post that Heard tells Depp in the clip," I don't know what the movement of my real hand was, but you're fine, I didn't hurt you, I didn't hit you, I was hitting you. "
He supposedly continues, telling the 56-year-old actor, "You're a baby. Grow the shit, Johnny.
In a court filing last year, Heard alleged that Depp, with whom she was married for a little over a year, before filing for divorce in May 2016, repeatedly beat her, ripped her hair, drowned her and almost suffocated her. The presentation was a response to Depp's own claim of defamation of $ 50 million against Heard, in turn, a response to Heard's opinion article in the Washington Post 2018 in which he describes being a victim of domestic abuse without mentioning the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star.
"Imagine watching television and watching your abuser be portrayed as a" humanitarian " tweets a fan account that takes the side of Depp in the internal conflict, "@LOrealParisUSA STOP GLORIFYING THE ABUSERS !!"
