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.
