Amber Heard has hit back at JK Rowling in a cryptic post on Twitter after the author defended the choice to keep Johnny Depp in the Fantastic Beasts sequel.
Heard re-posted the joint statement from the former Hollywood couple which was written after they settled the case of domestic violence, insisting that her words were “taken out of context”.
Whilst she didn’t mention the author by name her post came shortly after Rowling’s statement.
“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,” Heard posted on Twitter.
JK Rowling had defended Depp’s recasting with the stating she felt “comfortable” with the decision because of her “understanding” of the situation.
“The agreements that have been put in place to protect the privacy of two people, both of whom have expressed a desire to get on with their lives, must be respected,” she wrote.
“Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies.”
