Don't disparage the Wizarding World by casting dangerous Depp

This petition had 52 supporters

Recently, it was announced that Johnny Depp would play the role of Gellert Grindelwald in J.K. Rowling's 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'.

This has sparked outrage worldwide, and rightly so. Do we really want an alleged wife-abuser to have a place in our precious Wizarding World?

In 2007, J.K. Rowling disallowed Jamie Waylett from reprising his role as Vincent Crabbe in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, due to Waylett's criminal record.

Why should the situation be any different for Depp? Despite him being a great actor, he is not a great person.

We, who treasure our Wizarding World, do not welcome Johnny Depp. Please find a more worthy addition to the sacred world J.K. Rowling created.
