Fantastic Beasts Director Defends Johnny Depp — Do YOU Think They Should Keep Him In The Franchise??

Director David Yates is standing by his decision to keep Johnny Depp in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

In case you missed it, at the end of 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Colin Farrell's character transformed into a Depp-portrayed Gellert Grindelwald. However, amid Johnny's initial participation in the Harry Potter spin off, he was hit with troubling claims of domestic abuse by his ex-wife, Amber Heard. Related: Lady Bird Just Got The Best Rotten Tomatoes Score In History Thus, when it was re-confirmed this month that Johnny would remain on the cast list for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, there was quite the outcry on social media. In response to the backlash, Yates explained to Entertainment Weekly: "Honestly, there's an issue at the moment where there's a lot of people being accused of things, they're being accused by multiple victims, and it's compelling and frightening. With Johnny, it seems to me there was one person who took a pop at him and claimed something. I can only tell you about the man I see every day: He's full of decency and kindness, and that's all I see. Whatever accusation was out there doesn't tally with the kind of human being I've been working with." Huh. The seasoned filmmaker went on to note that many of the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor's past loves -- including Winona Ryder, Vanessa Paradis, and Lori Anne Allison -- have also defended his character. He continued: "By testament, some of the women in [Depp's] life have said the same thing — ‘that's not the human being we know.' It's very different [than cases] where there are multiple accusers over many years that need to be examined and we need to reflect on our industry that allows that to roll on year in and year out. Johnny isn't in that category in any shape or form. So to me, it doesn't bear any more analysis. It's a dead issue." It probably doesn't help that the Fantastic Beasts sequel is already in the middle of production. We're sure reshoots would be a HUGE headache. Regardless, we'd like to know what YOU think about this casting controversy. Be sure to weigh in on the issue (below)... [Image via Warner Bros./Jeff Spicer/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Amber Heard Puts Warner Bros. On Blast For Their Defense Of Casting Johnny Depp In The Fantastic Beasts Sequel!

Amber Heard must feel so betrayed. As you've likely seen, there has been quite a bit of controversy surrounding Johnny Depp's casting in the Fantastic Beasts sequel.

In case you missed it, at the end of 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Colin Farrell's character transformed into a Depp-portrayed Gellert Grindelwald. However, amid Johnny's initial participation in the Harry Potter spin off, the A-lister was hit with troubling claims of domestic abuse by his ex-wife. Despite the scandal, the 54-year-old kept his role in the Fantastic Beasts follow up. Both screenwriter J.K. Rowling and director David Yates have come to Depp's defense following the backlash. Warner Bros. also stood by the industry vet as they released a statement where they highlighted certain parts from Heard and Depp's joint words on their divorce. Specifically, the studio shared the line where the former flames stated "there was never any intent of physical or emotional harm." This, understandably, rubbed Amber the wrong way as she felt it was manipulative to quote her statement with Johnny out of context. The 31-year-old addressed her issue with Warner Bros. on Twitter as she posted: For the record, this was our FULL joint statement.To pick&choose certain lines & quote them out of context, is not right.Women, stay strong. pic.twitter.com/W7Tt6A3ROj — Amber Heard (@realamberheard) December 8, 2017 Warner Bros.' decision to stand by the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor must've stung Heard as she's a part of the WB family too.

Brooks is suing Depp’s ass […] The post Johnny Depp Sued For Punching Man, Just Got Shitty Tattoo, Overall Doing Well appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   Welcome to the story of Johnny Depp and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Tattoo. I mean day. I mean year. I mean face. Depp is in deep after allegedly punching a location manager, Gregg Brooks, working on Depp’s flick City of Lies – about the murder of Biggie Smalls – in 2017. Brooks is suing Depp’s ass for punching him after Brooks informed Depp on-set that he would only have one more opportunity to shoot his scene due to time constraints. TMZ reports that Depp initially became irate, screaming “Who the f*** are you? You have no right to tell me what to do.” When Brooks said he was going to get the LAPD involved, Depp punched him, and then when Brooks didn’t react, Depp allegedly stated “I will give you $100,000 to punch me in the face right now.” Punch, Brooks smartly did not, and now he’s looking to cash in on the encounter with a lawsuit. He claims that he could smell alcohol on Depp’s breath, which I assumed would be a given for any encounter with Depp at any time of day over the past three decades. In a note that’s related only in that it’s another signifier that Depp is probably going to die any day now, he just inked over his second iteration of a tattoo that was originally inspired by Amber Heard. The cool letters tattooed across the one-hundred-year-old’s knuckles originally spelled out SLIM – Depp’s nickname for ex Heard. He then changed the tat to SCUM, and now, like any badass sk8er boi in the mid-2000’s, he’s changed it to SCAM using the anarchist symbol. Remember, he’s one-hundred-years-old and still pulling this shit. Hopefully his next iteration of the tattoo will spell out DNR.   Photo Credit: Instagram The post Johnny Depp Sued For Punching Man, Just Got Shitty Tattoo, Overall Doing Well appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

But ultimately, there is real controversy. The fact remains I was falsely accused, which is why I’m suing the Sun newspaper for defamation for repeating false accusations. J.K. has seen the evidence and therefore knows I was falsely accused, and that’s why she has publicly supported me. She doesn’t take things lightly.

Depp first states that the folks at Rolling Stone threw him under the bus, before taking matters into his own hands and throwing himself under the bus throughout the GQ interview. When denying that he ever physically assaulted Amber Heard, Depp refers to her as “that person.” Possibly intended as a dis, but comes off more as something a crazy person says: To harm someone you love? As a kind of bully? No, it didn’t, it couldn’t even sound like me. Why didn’t that person speak to the police [before Heard appeared in court with bruises on her face]? I mean, they spoke to the police, but the police saw nothing and they offered her an emergency medical technician. She said no. Police see nothing on her. Police see nothing broken in the place, no marks, and then they offer her an EMT to have a look at her and she says no and I don’t know if it was the next day or a couple of days later, but then there was a bruise. There was a red mark and then there was a brown bruise. Depp also claims that the viral video – which includes the choice quote “You want to see crazy? I’ll give you fucking crazy” – of him going into a blind rage in front of an alarmed Heard was distributed out of context. He was upset because he just found out he lost like a billion dollars: She wanted to make like it was recent. It was an older video and had to do with finding out that I had lost hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars. In addressing the paparazzi attention Depp and his family receive, he states: …if a paparazzo gets a shot, they’re far away and they get a shot of me and my kid, whatever, that’s their thing. But if I catch you, I will eat your nose. I will eat your nose, chew it up and swallow it in front of you and then you’ll fucking think about it next time. I fucking mean it. Overall Depp feels that Hollywood has shunned him, and that his new status as an insane (but hot) lesbian is completely unwarranted and part of a larger defamation scheme deployed his former management. In news related to not being crazy, Depp reveals to the GQ interviewer, relatively unprompted: You know what Texas Belt Buckle is? Well, a Texas Belt Buckle is where you have to pull your scrotum up over the top of your jeans without undoing them. All the way up and over. Oh, the horror of it all… You have to bring your cock back around and stick it through… Your cock has to go around the bend in a sort of semi fruit basket and then, well, then you’re fucked. You pull your testicles out over the top and leave them just resting there. That’s a Texas Belt Buckle. Then, of course, there’s a Dirty Sanchez, which is something else entirely. ‘Dirty Sanchez’, which I managed to sneak into Pirates… Honestly, the interview is full of stuff like this, so you’ll probably want to check the whole thing out. I’ll leave you with Depp’s declaration of independence that reads like a particularly pensive caption from one of Alexis Ren’s selfies: The truth will come out in all of this and I will be standing on the right side of the roaring rapids. I hope other people will be too. I know the truth and if I had to walk away from all of it today, the job, the career, all of it, and go toodle-oo, then fine. I’ll be there you sexy bitch.

Rowling Is More Offensive Than Inclusive appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Today I learned that casting an Asian woman as a fictional snake creature is somehow racist, and in no way reaching for something to be upset about by overly sensitive internet dwellers. Love her or hate her, J.K. Rowling is going to make millions. She has decided to sprinkle diversity in her franchise now because she’s succeeded already, and all of her virtue signaling on Twitter would make her seem like she’s full of hot air if she didn’t include the kind of people she claims to throw a cape on for. Let’s not forget her random act of kindness when J.K. cast an inclusive spell and turned Hermione black for the Potter play. This time it’s the Asian community’s turn. But in an unexpected plot twist, subordinate Asian women in costumes happens to be a fetish. I’m going to assume that the same crowd of individuals searching the internet for “sexy Asian in reptilian cosplay” aren’t eager to see Harry Potter prequels. So I doubt anyone in the theater will put two and two together, or pick up possible subliminals. JK Rowling has been facing criticism ever since the controversial reveal that Voldemort’s snake, Nagini, will be played by a South Korean actor in the latest Fantastic Beasts film. Critics claim that the casting choice contributes to the fetishisation of East Asian women. They argue that Claudia Kim playing the role perpetuates a racist stereotype, because the snake is a submissive character, possessed and controlled by Voldemort. Surprise, surprise. Mention the word Asian and  Macaulay Culkin comes out of the woodworks. Macaulay Culkin wants to make another big splash in Hollywood — and he’s shamelessly, and publicly, lobbying J.K. Rowling to help him do it. The 38-year-old ‘Home Alone’ star tweeted the ‘Harry Potter’ author asking her to write him a role in the next movie in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ series — which is a prequel to the ‘Potter’ stories. I bet Culkin wanted an audition the minute he heard an Asian was going to be cast to be in the next Fantastic Beasts movie. His sweet and sour chicken fantasies know no boundaries. It won’t be long before he’s booked for harassment after attempting to get every woman on set that looks Asian to share her ancient Chinese secret with him on the couch in his trailer. Also, no matter how good you think you are, you can’t take an almost 20 year hiatus from acting to dabble in drugs and questionable sex acts and believe you’re still just as good when you left. Hey @jk_rowling I’m with you! Nagini can be whatever she wants to be! She’s a strong woman/snake. Also, can you write me into the next movie? I’m Macaulay Culkin (From Home Alone: The Movie) and I was also a Pagemaster (experienced with magic)… — Macaulay Culkin (@IncredibleCulk) September 26, 2018 Photos of Fantastic Beasts Co-star Katherine Waterston Via MrSkin.com The post J.K.
