The backlash Amber Heard is receiving due to her trial with Johnny Depp may be affecting her work opportunities.
Earlier this month, a petition to remove Heard from Aquaman 2 received over 2 million signatures after Depp sued Heard for defamation, claiming she lied when she wrote an op-ed piece where she accused Depp of domestic abuse.
