Warner Bros and J. K Rowling had earlier defended the decision to have Johnny Depp in the new 'Fantastic Beasts' movie despite allegations of domestic violence that were leveled against the star.
Now, Amber Heard has broken her silence and defended the choice to keep Johnny Depp in the upcoming 'Fantastic Beasts' film even after criticism from the author's fans.
Heard, who has said that Johnny Depp physically and verbally abused her throughout their short marriage, responded to the statements on her Instagram and Twitter accounts.
The actress is thought to have done so because of Warner Bros' decision to only include 10 words of the original statement in their comments.
She captioned the snap, "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."
