We knew Johnny Depp was not much into the apology the moment we saw his video. The actor took a jibe at the apology video during a recent “Alice Through the Looking Glass” press conference in London. Depp revealed he was not sorry for smuggling Boo and Pistol into England.
Using the same tone as in the now mocked “apology video,” Depp said that he will be doing this everywhere he goes, states Sydney Morning Herald. “I really would like to apologise for not smuggling my dogs into England because it would have been a bad thing to do … Because the Australians, a little chipper,” said Depp.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Tim Burton turned to Depp and claimed his dogs were dead. “I forgot to tell you. They’re dead. I just sat on them upstairs by accident,” Burton quipped. To which Depp retorted, “I tried to kill them after Australia.”
NME reveals that Suzanne Todd joined in the conversation, joking that his dogs were in England during the filming. “That’s funny, I feel like Johnny’s dogs were here, weren’t they? Weren’t they with you on set?” she wondered.
Actor Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were in the middle of controversy when Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce threatened to put down their Yorkshire terriers, Boo and Pistol. The reason? Their canine companions were not declared upon entry to Australia. However, Heard was let off with a good behaviour bond and no conviction.
ANN had earlier reported about the video,where the couple starred in to say they are sorry for disrespecting Australian laws. The video features Depp with a deadpan tone and an odd expression. The clip was the most mocked video on the internet. While Twitter had the craziest reactions, Stephen Colbert too, came out with a spoof on it.
Predictably, Depp is not a fan and brought up the video during another press conference in Venice. When asked if he would take Pistol and Boo for a gondola ride, the actor responded, “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.”
