Despite the legal trouble actor Johnny Depp and his wife Amber Heard faces following their dog smuggling case in Australia, the Hollywood star made fun of his video apology. His wife Amber Heard pleaded guilty over the charges of falsifying travel documents for smuggling their pet dogs.
During the press conference for his new movie, "Alice Through the Looking Glass," in England, Johnny Depp jokingly apologized for also not doing the same in the British country, Daily Mail reported. 'I'm going to do this everywhere I go, I would really like to apologize for not smuggling my dogs into England because it would have been a bad thing to do. The Australians are a little chipper, you know," Depp said.
Last month, Depp's wife, Amber Heard admitted on falsifying travel documents to smuggle their two Yorkshire Terriers dogs, Pistol and Boo in Australia on a private jet. The actor was in the country for his filming for his movie, Pirates of the Caribbean. The couple agreed to make a video apology, urging people to respect the country's quarantine laws as one of the plea terms. The charges against Heard were then dropped, Just Jared reported.
"Australians are just as unique as its wildlife, both warm and direct. If you disrespect Australian law, they will tell you firmly," Depp said on the video apology. The 52-year old actor's wife was granted with a good behaviour bond of AU$1,000 (£540), NME reported. Heard, a 30-year old actress was also not convicted to the said charges.
Previously, while on Venice press conference, Depp was also asked by a reporter if he will take his dogs on gondola tour. Depp jokingly answered, "No. I killed my dogs and ate them, under direct orders from some kind of, I don't know, sweaty, big-gutted man from Australia."
Last May, Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce had threatened to have the dogs euthanized if they were not immediately removed from Australia.
