Should Johnny Depp return as Jack Sparrow & Gellert Grindelwald, you decide

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

No one is sure how public opinion is on Johnny Depp's UK verdict (that labels him a 'wife-beater'), but there is a petition to return him to the roles he was fired from by Warner Bros. How do you assess a life-long career by one relationship... Then again?

It only takes one circumstance to get "cancelled" these days, thanks to Cancel Culture.

However, what if audiences were allowed to decide?

Audiences, pros, fans, or anyone who ever saw his work? For this, we turn to a Los Angeles-based Op-Ed. The timing is not great, Veterans Day in the US. But then again, Johnny Depp is certainly a veteran of Hollywood.

Here's the POV from Screenmancer...

by Screenmancer Op-Ed Okay, even though the High Court in London has made its opinion known that Johnny Depp, who began his career as a musician and rolled over into “21 Jump Street” on TV as a segue to movies, is a so-called monster, we beg to differ.

Because there are real monsters in Hollywood, ask Rose McGowan

 

 

HatterDepp16 Their names, not just the H word, came out in Tweets and posts, went viral, during the #MeToo era launched in 2018.

Is Depp among them? Not even close. So what about Amber Heard?

Should she lose her job in AQUAMAN as Meera? Nope.

What happened between them is (hey, we’re not shrinks) called Folie á deux, better known in English as “it takes two to tango.”

AmberHeard16Formally, Alexander Gralnick  M.D. in 1942 redefined this condition, which later became part of the DSM, as “The Psychosis of Association.” 

While it is unfortunate for both, who hasn’t had a crazy ex-whatever?

We’re going with our gut that this situation is 99 percent certain not to happen again. at least for JD. ;)

 

Screenmancer signed on to reinstate Johnny Depp in his franchise roles, and you can too.

Change dot org petition for Fantastic Beasts & more.

Note to JD: the best thing you can do right now is release that last Marlon Brando film (possibly) titled “The White Buffalo” you own, so all can see it.
