Depp and Australia minister renew war of words

US actor Johnny Depp and Australian politican Barnaby Joyce have been at loggerheads over Depp and his wife's two dogsA war of words between Johnny Depp and an Australian minister reignited Wednesday with Barnaby Joyce claiming he was the Hollywood star’s Hannibal Lecter after being told he looked as if he was “inbred with a tomato”. The pair have been at loggerheads since Depp’s wife Amber Heard failed to declare the couple’s two dogs when they arrived in Queensland state a year ago. Joyce, who is deputy prime minister and agriculture minister, threatened to have Pistol and Boo put down unless they “buggered off back to the United States” for breaking Australia’s strict quarantine laws.
