Australian politician claims he is Johnny Depp's 'Hannibal Lecter' as their war of words continues
Barnaby Joyce was hitting back after Johnny quipped that the ruddy-faced deputy prime minister appeared to be “inbred with a tomato”.
The exchange on Wednesday is the latest salvo in the dispute which began a year ago when Joyce, who is also agriculture minister, threatened to have Johnny’s pet dogs, Boo and Pistol, put down.
The 52-year-old actor’s wife Amber Heard pleaded guilty in a court last month to falsifying documents to conceal the pets when she arrived by private jet to join her husband on the set of the fifth film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series.
Johnny ridiculed Joyce this week on US television, telling talk show host Jimmy Kimmel: “He looks somehow inbred with a tomato.
“It’s not a criticism. No, I was a little worried. He might explode.”
