Fans torched the official Aquaman Movie twitter handle after they shared a photo of Amber Heard as Mera and wished her a happy birthday.

The official Aquaman Movie account wrote, “Happy Birthday Amber Heard! Here’s to a fin-tastic day.”

Now, it’s not out of the ordinary for film pages to wish the actors who have starred in the film or the franchise happy birthday. The 007 Twitter handle does it quite often. In fact, earlier this week they wished Billy Magnussen, who plays Logan Ash in the upcoming No Time To Die, a happy birthday.

Fans responded with their theories regarding Magnussen’s character in the film, their desire to see the film in the comfort of their own home, and wishing Magnussen happy birthday as well.

However, fans reacted quite differently to Warner Bros. happy birthday wish for Amber Heard.

Many pointed out Heard admitting that she physically abused Johnny Depp.

Heard is currently embroiled in a $50 million defamation lawsuit brought against her by Johnny Depp. In the lawsuit, Depp and his lawyers allege that Heard devastated Depp’s reputation and career “when Ms. Heard first accused him of domestic violence on May 27, 2016.”

The suit adds, “Ms. Heard’s hoax allegations were timed to coincide with the day that Mr. Depp’s film, Alice Through the Looking Glass, was released in theaters. Her op-ed with its false implication that she was a victim of domestic violence at the hands of Mr. Depp, brought new damage to Mr. Depp’s reputation and career. Mr. Depp lost movie roles and faced public scorn.”

The lawsuit points out, “Just four days after Ms. Heard’s op-ed was first published on December 18, 2018, Disney announced on December 22, 2018 that it was dropping Mr. Depp from his leading role as Captain Jack Sparrow – a role that he created – in the multi-billion-dollar-earning Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.”

It accuses Heard of publishing the “op-ed with actual malice.”

It also claims that Heard abused Johnny Depp:

“Ms. Heard knew that the truth was that she violently abused Mr. Depp – just as she violently abused her prior domestic partner, which led to her arrest and booking for domestic violence, as well as a night in jail and a mug shot.”

She explained, “Johnny often would not remember his delusional and violent conduct after he came out of his drunk or medicated states. … Because I loved Johnny, I had believed his multiple promises that he could and would get better. I was wrong.”

Depp would appear to be vindicated in his claims that Heard abused him when audio footage emerged of Heard admitting to physically attacking Depp.

On the tape, Heard admits to attacking Depp with pots and pans, “That’s different. That’s different. One does not negate the other. That’s irrelevant. That’s a complete non sequitur. Just because I’ve thrown pots and pans does not mean you cannot come and knock on my door.”

She also admitted to getting physical with Depp, “I can’t promise you that I’ll be perfect. I can’t promise you that I won’t get physical again. God I f****** sometimes get so mad I lose it.”

Heard also admitted to hitting Depp, “I’m sorry that I didn’t, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you’re not punched.”

A separate petition to have Emilia Clarke replace Amber Heard as Mera has been signed by over 12,000 people.

The lawsuit is ongoing.
