Fans of Johnny Depp have taken to social media to slam the new “Animaniacs” reboot.
During a song titled “Reboot It”, the show appeared to accuse the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star of being a liar.
Warner Brothers: this is a sick thing to do to an abuse survivor. Listen to the tapes – Johnny Depp has been put through psychological torture and physical abuse. I'm sorry that I don't find this funny, but it's no laughing matter.#BoycottWarnerBrothers#JusticeForJohnnyDepp pic.twitter.com/E3BBmX3ITq

A movie poster which featured in the number showed a caricature of the actor with the caption “Johnny 2: Telling Lies”.
Sending an angry response directed at Warner Brothers, one fan wrote, “This is a sick thing to do to an abuse survivor. Listen to the tapes – Johnny Depp has been put through psychological torture and physical abuse. I’m sorry that I don’t find this funny, but it’s no laughing matter.”
The controversy comes just weeks after Depp lost a libel suit over a Sun article calling him a “wife beater.”
Both Depp and his ex, Amber Heard, spent several days in the witness box during the three-week trial in July, giving irreconcilable accounts of their explosive relationship.
