Jason Momoa appeared to be making a statement about his stance on costar Amber Heard's ongoing trial with ex Johnny Depp.
Despite starring with Heard in Aquaman, Momoa, 42, dropped a subtle hint that he might be taking Depp's side after following him on Instagram in the midst of the pair's court battle.
According to a report from Radar, Momoa wasn't following Depp on the social media platform prior to this week, but decided to hit the follow button hours into the sixth day of the trial.

While the Dune actor is also still following Heard on Instagram, the decision to follow Depp definitely raises questions about where his loyalty stands in regards to the estranged pair's current court war.
As we know, Depp, 58, and Heard, 35, have been duking it out in the defamation trial all week, with the Pirates of the Caribbean star testifying that his ex's abuse allegations have destroyed his life.
On Wednesday, April 20, Depp was asked what he has lost as a result of the accusations against him, to which he answered, "Nothing less than everything," as OK! reported.
"When the allegations were rapidly circulating the globe telling people that I was a drunken, cocaine-fueled menace who beat women suddenly in my 50s, it’s over, you’re done,” he continued.
In 2018, Heard wrote an article for The Washington Post, in which she claimed she had become "a public figure representing domestic abuse," although she didn't name Depp specifically.

He later filed his defamation suit, which he explained his reasoning for on Wednesday by stating: "I'm suing her over defamation and the various falsities that she used to bring my life to an end."
Since taking the stand for the first time earlier this week, he's called Heard's claims against him "heinous" and "disturbing."
He also insisted that he never struck the 35-year-old actress "in any way, nor have I ever struck any woman in my life," he said, as OK! reported.
"Since I knew that there was no truth to [Heard's claims] whatsoever, I felt it my responsibility to stand up not only for myself in that instance, but stand up for my children," he explained in his testimony. (Depp shares daughter Lily-Rose, 22, and Jack, 20, with Vanessa Paradis.)
"I wanted to clear my children of this horrid thing that they were having to read about their father, which was untrue," he added.
