Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Apology

  

Johnny Depp 

The 29-year-old actress Amber Heard, along with her husband Johnny Depp, issued the most laughably awkward apology from their Gold Coast hotel while in Australia as Heard faced charges over bringing the couple's two dogs to Australia illegally last year.

Heard was issued with a one-month good behaviour bond after admitting to falsifying customs documents in unlawful bringing their pair's dogs, Pistol and Boo, into Australia from the US in April last year. This was during the time that Johnny Depp was filming another movie of the Pirates of the Caribbean.
According to the deputy prime minister, Barnaby Joyce, the Hollywood couple were less than willing to participate in this video on Australian biosecurity. As part of the case, Heard and Depp released a video that was played in court, lauding Australia's biosecurity rules.
A spokesman for the Department of Agriculture said Heard offered her repentance for breaking the rules, and to cover the costs of the video. However, Joyce seemed unsure.
“It was offered. Whether the court accepts it or not as part of an outcome is really the realm of the court, and in this instance the court did,” he told reporters. “I don't think it is something they would have willingly wanted to do.”
He said everyone entering Australia should respect the country's “particular nuances.” “Every nation has something its red-hot about, and we're red-hot about biosecurity requirements in this nation,” Joyce said.
However, the video was a real punishment for the couple which depicts both Depp and Heard looking very sorry for themselves while certifying their respect and love for Australia, as well as the importance of bio-security laws. Starting off with Heard's solemn statement “Australia is a wonderful island”, the apology goes from bad to worse, and of course, the video broke the Internet and caused mockery of them far and wide.
It could have been worse. In 2015, Joyce threatened to have Pistol and Boo killed. But now Joyce is satisfied with the pair's international humiliation, even questioning Depp's acting skills.
“What I can say is although I don't think he'll get an academy award for his performance, the fact that he did it … he looked like he was auditioning for the Godfather," said Joyce.
"At the end of it we've got a message that is going all around the world right now, it's going off like a frog in a sock telling people that if you come into this nation and you don't obey our laws, you're in trouble."
"As far as me directing this atrocious movie, no, even I could have done a little better than that. Do it again Johnny, do it with gusto mate, a little gusto."
This is the transcript of the video:
Amber Laura Heard: Australia is a wonderful island with a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and people.
John Christopher “Johnny” Depp II: That has to be protected.
Australia is free of many pests and diseases that are common place around the world. That is why Australia has to have such strong biosecurity laws.
[Johnny Depp:] And Australians are just as unique, both warm and direct. When you disrespect Australian law they will tell you firmly.
[Amber Heard:] I am truly sorry Pistol and Boo were not declared. Protecting Australia is important.
[Johnny Depp:] Declare everything when you enter Australia. (nods head) Thanks.
