    It's not like Depp fans on twitter or Daily Mail are reputable sources here…

    Then maybe just listen to the audio recording between her and him and judge for yourself. It's pretty clear from the audio she was abusing him physically and verbally while he was trying to calm her down in this instance.

    Maybe. But I also firmly believe that the risk of recordings and statements being taken out of context is extremely high.

    I also consider the campaign taken by Depp fans to be extremely distasteful due to the amount of personal attacks.

    Whatever it is, they both seem to be toxic in the relationship. However, a lot of evidence is coming up against Heard...

    Personally, while I liked her enough as Mera, I think her visuals sold the character more then her actual acting did, so I wouldn't necessarily mind a recast come what may.

    This whole Heard/Depp relationship just seems like an emotionally abusive mess. Possibly on both sides.

    I don't understand fan defenses myself, since the vast majority of them have no idea what type of people they idolize are in reality.

    I'd rather recast Mera then just up and replace her. All that build up to make her a main heroine shouldn't go down to the toilet because of Heard's behavior.

    Ugh, get this poison out of here.

    I don't think there's something to be misconstrued, in the video she flat out admits that she abused him physically and verbally. Not sure what Depp's fans have been doing, but there's nothing to be taken out of context in the particular video. I don't care much for Depp himself but it's amusing that people who got on JK Rowling's case for giving him a job must feel a tad bit silly right now.

    Regardless, I don't think this will affect Heard's Aquaman role. She plays a supporting character, it's not like this is Momoa revealed to have done something awful to his spouse.

    there’s little to no evidence to suggest it’s on both sides. Going by what I’m seeing, she’s an abuser and a terrible human being on top of that. If Depp lost career opportunities for what he was accused of, then so should she.

    Those who say Mera should be written out should have no opinion. But yeah just recast. Nobody cares War Machine was switched from Howard to Cheadle so why not do it here.
