Earlier in an interview, Johnny Depp claimed that Hollywood is boycotting him and expressed his concern for “Minamata”. Further adding that his film, ‘Minamata’, is simply being released within the UK as MGM is worried his personal issues will be bad for them. However, his fans have shown their tremendous support on social media, with some “even ready to boycott Hollywood if they boycott him.”
