Harry Potter fans want to boycott the new Fantastic Beasts movie
Harry Potter fans are not happy.
As we all know, the wizarding fans have always been a loyal bunch.
Whether it was a new book, a spin-off movie or play, they turned up in droves to support JK Rowling and the Potter universe.
However, now that Fantastic Beasts 2 is on its way, fans can't get over one particular thing - or person - in the movie.

People on Twitter are calling out the makers of the movie on casting Johnny Depp in the flick.
Yes, he appeared for a brief second in the first film, but a lot has happened since then.
His ex-wife, Amber Heard came out to say that Depp assaulted her. She filed for divorce and retained a restraining order.
Their divorce was settled for a reported €6 million, which she pledged to give to charity.
And so, after all of that, fans are disappointed that Johnny is still included in the movie:
Beautiful photo, except for the abuser on the right. When will Johnny Depp leave the movie?

How come House of Cards is cancelled when Kevin Spacey is outed as a sexual predator, but Johnny Depp can beat up his wife and still be the face of the new Fantastic Beasts movie? I’m so disappointed in the Potter universe ?.

If Ridley Scott can fire Kevin Spacey, after filming an entire movie with him and voluntarily reshooting it a month before release, then y'all can do the same thing w Johnny Depp bc you still have a year to go #FantasticBeasts pic.twitter.com/yaK93VMgc1
