What do you think of all the fan outrage surrounding the FANTASTIC BEASTS sequel?
It seems many fans are outraged over this movie that hasn't come out yet. First, they are furious that Johnny Depp is still playing Grindelwald, after being accused of domestic abuse by his ex Amber Heard -- allegations which have never been proven and which everyone who knows Johnny personally seems to reject. Of course, in the #MeToo era, an accusation can be reason enough to fire someone.

Fans were even more shocked and disgusted to learn that Dumbledore's homosexuality won't be a plot point of the new film. While J. K. Rowling has confirmed Dumbledore as gay in various public statements, his sexual orientation will not be explored in this movie. Fans have denounced the decision as cowardly and homophobic. My own feeling is, there are three more sequels coming after this one, so it's a little early to get butt-hurt.

Do the fans have a point or are these trivial things to get so upset about?

  • In my opinion, being a huge fan of HP, I am not outraged at all - mostly because it was pretty clear from the get go that Amber Heard was (and still is, I'm sure) a manipulative, lying piece of 'actress'...
    So I am all for the truth - and Depp isn't a problem in any way here.

    The Dumbledore thing IS definitely weird... I see a lot with J. K. Rowling she likes the shock factor/diversity (so to speak) of a character being gay, but she doesn't like actually depicting it... which is extremely strange to me - but I guess to each their own.

  • What's problematic is that this is basically the representation of our current society in general... Everyone needs to be offended by something, and if they can't find anything offensive in something, then they make up a reason!

  • Wow theyre bringin back dumbledore? And dang never wouldve imagined dude was gay. I feel they didn't show his personal life enough in harry potter for us to care if he's gay or not. So they should just leave that out of it. And i mean Johnny prob already filmed his scenes so #MeToo should just let it slide this one time. Who knows, if people still dont get over it by a 3rd part of the movie, maybe he’ll be replaced

  • Not proven? Buddy his former publicists have all given out multiple contracts they were made to sign to not talk about it. There's shit loads of proof, you don't just get to not believe something because you like the actor that's not how this works.
