Wasn't it also suspected that Depp was trying to get her fired? Don't think WB will want to fire her unless its something really extreme since canning her but keeping Depp while her performance in Aquaman was overall good while his in Fantastic Beasts was more or less panned is a REALLY bad look.
Really I heard plenty of critics praise Depp for Grindelwald. With some saying he and Law were the only good parts. I don't really have an opinion on it. Having never seen it

The divorce proceedings was wrapping up only to escalate because Depp accused her of trying to destroy his career because of her various comments and the negative press that was being generated. They were at comic con at the same time for Fantastic Beasts and Aquaman and there were some articles targeting Warner Brothers directly for not dropping Depp from the promotion.
The Fantastic Beasts movies have been poorly received as a whole, and Depp's literal appearance as Grindelwald was criticized as being too much, but the character and performance in general was actually seen as a step up from Voldemort. Despite Depp's known personal life eccentricities, I haven't heard of him being difficult on film sets in general (at least before this whole divorce mess). Heard doesn't have the same scope of career, she may be safe when it comes to Aquaman but it's hard to say if this will set a bad precedence for future projects.
Also, I've never heard anyone say that Grindelwald was better than Voldemort.
He was considered to be a candidate for Magnificent Bastard due to his big speech at the end of the second film, as well as manipulating the good guys into looking like bad people. He just ultimately didn't count due to being too close to the Nazis.
In contrast, Voldemort is just a lot more blatantly evil and thanks to his disfiguration, it's impossible to see any charm he would have on unsuspecting masses like Grindelwald did.
I've never seen the films but my friends who did had a hard time taking Depp-Grindelward seriously. They liked Dumbledore just fine, though.
The only thing I know of the Fantastic Beasts movies is that they are poorly received for the most part.

The first one was considered decent amounts of fun, but the second one is mostly hated.
The first one got critical acclaim, was a box office hit, and won two Oscars. I personally loved the first one. I liked the main character for Fantastic Beasts more than I do Harry. Helps that he had a better actor. And again I have not seen the second one.

The second film is passably entertaining but once you stop to sit down and think about it, it's a mess. It has a lot of problems, like Nagini being a superfluous character who does nothing but stand around Credence and look sad/scared and Queenie being grossly mishandled.
Here you go:
I also saw this.
A petition has been made to remove Amber Heard from the Aquaman sequel.
Yes, because there aren't a ton of obsessive Johnny Depp fans out there creating petitions.
"In contrast, Voldemort is just a lot more blatantly evil and thanks to his disfiguration, it's impossible to see any charm he would have on unsuspecting masses like Grindelwald did.
Kinda, voldermort is that kind of chararter like palpatine or the joker who isnt deep(ha,ha) in any way and relies in charm but voldermort show itself very little to mantain the charm.
For what I get a lot of people want the fake persona of grindwald being is own thing because the acting was awsome, it didnt help his aparience manage to be siller than voldermot.
It isn't necessarily the same group of people. There are people who aren't fans of Depp who don't like what they're hearing about Heard.
