So, this post does not contain any news regarding Johnny or his projects! It’: rather about an administrative issue: images of Johnny and Amber in our photo gallery.

I received an e-mail from someone complaining about the fact that I uploaded images of 2015 that show Johnny and Amber together. She called it inappropriate. First of all, I’m thankful for any kind of suggestions and feedback. However, what I don’t like is when people become offensive and rude even if they don’t understand and try to get to the bottom of why someone does certain things.

I uploaded those pictures because they belong to Johnny’s career of the last two years. I’m not going to delete them because he and Amber decided to get divorced. What if this was an Angelina Jolie fan site? Should one delete all pictures showing her and Brad because they do have some issues due to their divorce? I think not!

Not for one second I believed in the rumors that Amber has spread about Johnny and their relationship. I think that if you’re a true fan, that’s definitely what you do. So I never feared she might ever be a jeopardy to his career. She’s been a huge and important part of his life in the recent time and he most probably does not consider it to be bad only. There had been good moments either.

That I uploaded those images does not mean I’m a supporter of their marriage or whatever. It’s merely a “natural” thing to keep fans updated about what he had been up to in the past years. This includes events he attended with Amber. I’m not going to delete any pictures that show Johnny and co-workers he ever had a conflict with either. I’m rather updating the gallery and adding missing pictures.

I’m not going to post rumors or gossip about the divorce case. That’s his privacy. Posting pictures of PUBLIC APPEARANCES that have nothing to do with their relationship status is, in my opinion, a complete different thing. I’m not even completely updated when it comes to their divorce issues. I’d say I don’t really care because a website tells you different things than another. And truth be told, I think it’s their “problem”. Johnny and Amber should be left alone and not be bothered with rumors making their lives any harder than they already are.

Johnny and Amber had not only been wife and husband, but also co-stars. I won’t delete any images of them in movies nor of public appearances. They belong to his career and do not represent any inappropriate material. My aim is to make this site complete! And provide fans with material, information, images of all of Johnny’s projects and years, including 2015, the year he had brought along Amber to many of the events he attended. That’s it!

I’m sorry if you think about it differently.

    Yeah, but why do they show up as “latest” photos? Why not something a lot more current? And yeah, after what she put him through, I think I would edit out a number of them.

    Because they are the last images that I uploaded to the gallery for now. Sorting through them is an option, I agree.

    If I had had the time to upload all those pics of the last year I had done it myself nearly one year ago when nobody knew (even if guessed) what would happen. You’re doing a great job catching up with the galleries that are missing after I quit. Public Appearances are public, whoever is on it, they are not an invasion on privacy, and you cannot ban every pic with his ex-wife or even the movie “The Rum Diary” from this site. Censoring things do not “un-do” what has happened.

    Though, I would not even have commented on such a mail…at least not publicly.

    True words. I decided to comment on it publicly because I received two e-mails and worried that many more viewers may feel and think quite the same way. I wished for them to understand why I uploaded those images and why they won’t be deleted. 🙂

    I would also not edit them out. It is his past. Him + an ex wife that looks -IMHO – arrogant like always in her pics. Done. Just be happy it’s over, or ignore it.

    What is far more interesting: why does his white shirt look as if my son had it on when eating tomatoe soup 😉 We should send him a dribble bib with JDorg logo maybe?!?

    Well, maybe upload some new pics (screencaps from any movie) immediately, so they don’t show up as latest addition anymore.

    I agree with Debby. Public appearance photos should be shown. It has nothing to do with their private lives.

    As a huge fan of Johnny Depp I just have to add the following:
    1. I am a huge fan of your site, too. Thank you so much for sailing this ship, Debby!
    2. Without your own post, I wouldn’t have written any comment about these pictures because Amber Heard was indeed part of the biography of Johnny Depp, so in my opinion there is no need to delete her of the galleries – but:
    3. After a few hours of research about those disappearing “bruises” that police officers couldn’t find I have some ideas about what Amber Heard did – and tried to do –
    to Johnny Depp and his family – and I really don’t like it… By the way, she gave a very bad time to many fans, too. So it just hurts me to see her face, especially on my favorite website.
    4. All in all: Many thanks for changing the “latest photos” – I definitely prefer James Bulger played by Johnny Depp to anything related to that Amber I wish I had never Heard of.

    I applaud your post. It is a fine line of what is right and what is wrong in these situations. As the owner of I totally understand you, I probably don’t have to explain why lol. Keep up the great work!

    I toast to you, Debby!
    As a fan of Johnny and previous webmaster of a Johnny fansite (Martina knows who I am) I get the thing here. Being or not a fan of Amber, it is part of the webmaster to cover everything that includes his career, also public events where mostly are coverage of promotion for this career.
    Under this line then NO SINGLE PHOTO should be put online when they divorce / separate. Any Johnny site should be empty of 14 years of showing up with Vanessa too? Makes no sense.
    Keep doing your job, it’s great and wonderful. And I applaud you too because of your response. If I got such mails I would have been way nastier.
