The Halloween fame Jamie Lee Curtis becomes the latest prey to online trolling. The 63 years old actress faced intense criticism for posting a photo of Johnny Depp on Instagram. Following the incident, the Laurie Strode actress limited her comments on that post. But it was not long before her fans came to her rescue and took to the Internet to present their support for both Johnny Depp and Curtis.
Jamie Lee Curtis was recently spotted in the final movie in the sequel trilogy as well as the 13th installment of the Halloween franchise titled Halloween Ends. Unfortunately, the movie couldn’t live up to the reputation of its predecessors and gained mixed reactions from the audience as well as the critics.
Why is Jamie Lee Curtis subjected to online hate?
The whole controversy originates in the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp legal battle that took over the Internet a few months ago. The defamation trial was followed by a wide section of the audience and the fans were divided. As Jamie Lee Curtis posted a photo of Johnny Depp on her official Instagram account, a division of the audience mainly Amber Heard fans were once again on fire and blasted the actress.
The war between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard led to the actor losing many fan-favorite projects. He wasn’t only removed from The Fantastic Beasts franchise but also from the widely popular The Pirates of the Caribbean. Although the majority sided with Depp, there’s a certain section also supporting the words of Amber Heard.
The True Lies actress’ post annoyed the fans as many of them trolled her for supporting Depp. According to them, Jamie Lee Curtis has shown her support for domestic abuse through this post. Many of them also flooded the comments section telling her to delete the post. This led her to restrict her comments section to limit the hate.
Johnny Depp fans come to the rescue
As soon as the Freaky Friday actress limited her Instagram comments, the Johnny Depp fandom took no time to come to her rescue. They took over Twitter to show their love and respect for the actress. We have collected a few of them.
