Johnny Depp played his Sweden concert as planned despite a social media campaign calling for a boycott of the show over his wife Amber Heard’s domestic abuse claims.

The 52-year-old actor and his Hollywood Vampires bandmates took the stage at Stockholm’s Grona Lund amusement park which then got heavily criticized for letting an alleged abuser perform, reported Ace Showbiz.

A spokesperson for the amusement park has defended their decision to keep the show going on amid Depp’s domestic violence accusations.

“We are opposed to any sort of violence, of course. But it’s also equally important that we cannot judge someone beforehand. Everyone, including Johnny Depp, should be allowed to have the right to be considered innocent until proven guilty.”
