Johnny Depp's fans continued to show their support for him by paying tribute to his well-loved character as they await the jury's verdict in his defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard.

On Tuesday, a massive "Pirates of the Caribbean"-themed ship was seen in front of the Fairfax County, Virginia, courthouse where the jury continues to deliberate on a verdict, TMZ reported.

The vessel was put atop a flatbed truck and featured a massive "Pirates of the Caribbean" banner, a cannon, an anchor and even a mannequin Jack Sparrow at the helm.

The tribute received a mixed response on Twitter, with some finding it impressive while others thought it was inappropriate, considering Depp was dropped from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.

"I'm here for every second of this," one person commented. "This is f--king incredible!!!!" another wrote.

"This is just weird energy. I'm all for [Johnny Depp] due to the testimony, but this is a serious court proceeding, not a circus sideshow. Go home," a third user wrote.

"I guess they didn't listen to Depp when he said he felt betrayed by Disney and didn't want to act in or think about 'Pirates' again...yikes," another person opined.

Depp is suing Heard for $50 million over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she called herself a "public figure representing domestic abuse." While he was not named in the piece, the actor argued that it still damaged his reputation and cost him movie roles.

Depp said in court in April that he discovered Disney would not include him in the sixth installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean" two or three days after Heard's "shocking" article ran, Insider reported.

During his testimony, the actor said he was disappointed with Disney over being denied the opportunity to formally conclude the franchise with a "proper goodbye."

"Captain Jack Sparrow was a character that I had built from the ground up and was something that I put a lot of — you put a lot of yourself into characters," he said.

"And also having worked on those films with those people, and having put a lot of my own rewriting, dialogue, scenes and jokes and whatever they are," Depp continued. "I didn't quite understand how, after that long relationship, and quite a successful relationship, certainly for Disney, that suddenly I was guilty until proven innocent."

Depp's talent manager, Jack Whigham, testified last month that fallout from Heard's op-ed was "catastrophic" for the actor's career.

Whigham claimed that he had "closed a deal" for Depp to star in "Pirates 6" for $22.5 million, People reported. But in early 2019, it "became clear [producers at Disney] were going in a different direction" that did not include Depp, the talent agent said.

"After the op-ed, it was impossible to get him a studio film, which is what we normally would have been focussed on in that time period," said Whigham.

It was previously announced that Margot Robbie would lead a rebooted entry of the "Pirates" franchise.

Depp's and Heard's legal teams closed their arguments Friday after six weeks of a trial that exposed intimate details about the former couple's personal lives, including accusations of domestic violence and substance abuse.

The jury resumed deliberations Tuesday following the holiday weekend but did not reach a verdict. They will continue deliberations Wednesday.

After both sides rested last week, Depp flew to England to perform in Jeff Beck's concerts.

Heard has countersued Depp for $100 million, saying that his allegations that she fabricated her abuse claims destroyed her career.
