Hollywood is at a crossroads, with Amber Heard and Johnny Depp fans drawing battle lines on social media and asking for help for the winners.
As Heard gets ready to make her comeback at the prestigious Taormina Film Festival with her new movie “In the Fire,” which she just paid her ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp $1 million for, a new argument has started on social media.
The festival’s move to show Heard’s movie at a time when she is still having problems with her ex-husband has caused a storm of controversy.
The 69th Taormina Picture Festival is about to start in Sicily, Italy. The fact that Amber Heard’s picture will be shown has sparked heated debates online.
Amber Heard is back on the big screen in a supernatural movie that Conor Allyn is directing. It will be her first public showing since her high-profile legal battles with the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
The festival’s choice to show both of the ex-couple’s movies has caused a firestorm. Depp’s fans say that by showing Heard’s film, the festival is making fun of the well-known actor, since both of them have been accused of cheating on each other.
Fans of both stars insult each other, which shows how different their views are. Those who want Heard to be included stress the need to stand with abuse survivors and gather for Hollywood to take a united stand against abuse. Depp’s fans, on the other hand, say that the event is supporting a “liar” and “manipulator.”
The fight between Depp and Heard’s fans shows how the entertainment business is still talking about accountability, credibility, and helping people who have been abused.
