Re-cast Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts films

This petition had 129 supporters

Following the allegations of domestic violence made against Johnny Depp that have been supported by multiple witnesses and lead to a settlement made out of court, we call for the role of Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise to be re-cast.

It is deeply offensive to anyone who has experienced domestic violence for a perpetrator to be glorified in this way. 

Harry Potter carries messages of standing up for what is right, even when it means taking the difficult route. It champions courage, supporting others and confronting wrongful actions, even when they are being carried out by your friends.

It is bitterly disappointing that these values are being cast aside whether it is for money or for saving face and reputations. 

The tide is turning on those who seek to harm, intimidate and assault others in Hollywood. Please play your part in this.

We urge you to take a stand for what is right, show solidarity with survivors of domestic violence, and recast Johnny Depp in all Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films.
