Johnny Depp and Amber Heard recently flew to Australia to stand trial for bringing their two dogs Pistol and Boo, into Australia without declaring them. This is a situation that doesn't seem like a big deal to most, but apparently has caused an uproar in the Australian Government.
A shocking video surfaced this week, featuring the two actors giving some kind of half-baked, forced, hostage-like apology while simultaneously "educating" the masses about Australian Biosecurity.
The video above shows a visibly pissed off Depp and Heard talking about some kind of protective measures for the delicate environments of Australia. I can respect that, but this looks just...strange. Suspect even.
These two are some of the best actors in the world, and even their craft can't protect them from looking extremely upset and contemptuous in this video.
It makes you wonder, what this apology cost them, either morally or monetarily. CNN reported that Heard was spared a conviction over the dog-smuggling saga by an Australian court Monday afternoon. She pleaded guilty to knowingly producing a false or misleading document, while two other charges of illegally importing her dogs were dismissed.
The Australian government threatened to euthanize the dogs unless the Depps returned to California.

What do you guys think of this case?

Laws like this are really important when it comes to limiting the spread of disease. Like I'm sorry for the inconvenience but that's the way it is? It's not like they couldn't afford to deal with the hassle or whatever
You can expect some strangeness from the Depps. It's not uncommon. However, if you're going to be property or in their case, pets, into a foreign country, you need to learn about the laws.
@shannonl5 yeah I get that! this is just a totally odd thing though. Like the video itself is seriously creepy lol
@BeannachtOraibh yeah, it's hard to tell, just definitely looks creepy. And @Patmanmeow you're right, there's always some weirdness. Private planes are difficult because some of the time they get to skirt around some laws. This time, they just got caught.
@Animaniafreak yeah, she's like, 26 ish I think? They met filming The Rum Diary.
