NewYork, 10th November: Famous Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has exited the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ film franchise, days after losing a libel case over a newspaper article which called him ‘a wife-beater’.
Baaghi TV: 3 days ago, Johnny Depp had said that he withdrew from the movie ‘Fantastic Beasts’ after losing a 200,000 euro defamation case filed against the British newspaper ‘The Sun’ in the London High Court.
According to the actor, the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ team had asked him to leave the film, which he accepted and separated himself from the film.
However, his fans were unhappy with the actor’s departure from the film and called it an injustice. And now his fans have launched a campaign to get Johnny Depp back in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’.
Johnny Depp’s fans have started a petition in favour of the actor on the online platform Change Organization.
The petition demanded that Johnny Depp be made a part of the fantasy film ‘Fantastic Beasts’ and separating him from the film is unfair to him.

The Online Petition was signed by more than 130,800 people by 5 pm on November 10, and more support is needed to bring Johnny Depp back to film.
There will be no other actor that can play 'Grindelwald' better than #JohnnyDepp himself! He is irreplaceable. This will be a big loss for Warner Bros and the franchise of #FantasticBeasts 😔 If that's the case, kick out Amber Heard too for the Aquaman! #JusticeForJohnnyDepp pic.twitter.com/wJ6APeI1X6

The petition states that Johnny Depp was asked by Warner Bros. to resign and relinquish his role as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts 3 movie.
“I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request… The surreal judgement of the court in the UK will not change my fight, to tell the truth, and I confirm that I plan to appeal,” Depp said Friday. “My resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false. My life and career will not be defined by this moment in time.”
It may be recalled that American actor Johnny Depp had recently lost a defamation suit against the British newspaper The Sun. Johnny Depp had filed a lawsuit against a British newspaper in 2018 for publishing an article against him for 200,000 euros.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were married in 2015, but in 2016, 34-year-old Amber Heard filed for divorce after accusing Johnny Depp of violence, and the two divorced in 2017.
After the two divorced, several broadcasters reported on Johnny Depp’s violence against Amber Heard, but a British newspaper article detailed that the actor had sexually assaulted his wife on 14 different occasions in two years. The newspaper wrote in its article that Johnny Depp was a ‘husband-beater.’
