A petition to remove actress Amber Heard from the cast of "Aquaman 2" has reached over 2.6 million signatures on Saturday amid Johnny Depp's defamation case against her.

As the third week of the tumultuous trial ended, a petition asking the executives at Warner Bros. Entertainment to "do the right thing" and remove Heard from the "Aquaman" sequel, officially called "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has crossed over 2.6 million signatures.

The petition reads "Amber Heard has been exposed as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp." It also alleges that since the couple's divorce, Heard "has systematically crusaded to ruin Depp in Hollywood, repeating multiple accounts of fake incidents in which she had actually abused Johnny Depp, but lied and created false accounts of him being the abuser."

The petition added that domestic violence against men "must be recognized, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry." Heard plays the role of Princess Mera in Aquaman. Jason Momoa plays the lead role of the superhero in the film.Depp filed a defamation case against Heard over a column she wrote for The Washington Post in December 2018 in which she described herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse." The 36-year-old Heard never named the 58-year-old Depp but he sued her for implying that he was a domestic abuser and is seeking $50 million in damages. The Texas-born Heard countersued, asking for $100 million and claiming she suffered "rampant physical violence and abuse" at his hands.
