    Amber Heard Fans Slam Cannes For “Celebrating Abusers” As Johnny Depp Receives Standing Ovation For ‘Jean Du Barry’

    Separation and divorce have been common in the entertainment industry over the years. But there are some relationships that gain recognition for having a lot of drama as the couple head towards separation. Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s relationship was one of those relationships.

    The reason was that the buzz did not end with the duo’s divorce. The pair continued to target each other for different reasons and the feud eventually ended in 2022 after a much-publicized defamation trial.

    Amber Heard’s supporters slammed the Cannes Film Festival for starting the event with a new movie featuring Johnny Depp, titled ‘Jeane Du Barry.’ Depp also attended the red carpet of the event before the screening alongside a conference on Wednesday.

    However, Heard’s supporters were not happy with the same and they started using the hashtag #CannesYouNot for protesting against the festival. A few journalists have also used the same hashtag, including Eve Barlow, who wrote, “Cannes seem proud of their history supporting rapists and abusers.

    Founder of the Twitter page @LeaveHeardAlone, Rebecca, also spoke about the criticism of the Cannes Film Festival, saying that the Depp v. Heard trial led to the slamming of the #MeToo movement. She added, “Hollywood industries seem to be riding that backlash to return to the status quo. To open your festival with Johnny Depp? To be frank, it feels like a slap in the face.”

    Amber Heard and Johnny Depp first met while working together in ‘The Rum Diary’ and they tied the knot in a civil ceremony in February 2015. While Heard appealed for divorce the following year, she also acquired a restraining order against Depp, claiming that Depp was abusive towards her.

    The duo reached a settlement in 2016 and they divorced in 2017. The restraining order was dismissed and the pair also stated that they never made false accusations against each other for personal benefits. A divorce settlement worth $7 million was paid by Depp to Heard.
