Recast Gellert Grindelwald

Harry Potter is a saga that is treasured by millions, perhaps billions. The saga is overflowing with wonderful characters overcoming their abusers and the traumas they have been put through by those abusers. Harry and the Dursleys, Neville and Snape, the Wizarding World and Voldemort, and the list goes on.
Johnny Depp was accused of abuse by his now ex-wife Amber Heard. The two settled with a statement that included "Neither party has made false accusations for financial gains" which confirms that despite any past behavior, the abuse itself did occur.
To cast an abuser in a franchise that gives comfort to abuse survivors all over the world is an insult to what this saga means to so many. We are aware that it costs money to recast, to potentially reshoot scenes, but so many fans already plan to no longer support the series because Johnny Depp will be involved.
This saga has listened to us for years, and we are asking that you listen to us now. Please do not isolate the abuse survivors in your fanbase who now feel as if they can't support a saga that has brought them comfort, who are uncomfortable at seeing an abuser onscreen.
Please recast Gellert Grindelwald.
