We in Australia believe that everyone, even celebrities, should obey the law. That goes for the “ordinary” human being as well as the visiting megastars such as Johnny Depp.
Depp may not care if animals brought into the country carry diseases which may infect our animal population, but we do. We are determined to protect our livestock and that is why there is a quarantine rule which prevents overseas visitors, no matter who they are, to declare that they have animals with them and agree to place them in quarantine.
Apparently, Mr Depp who suffers from a swelled head has decided that the law should not apply to him. Surely, it’s only for mere mortals, says Mr Depp. “My little doggies are as special as I am.”
Ironically, it turns out to be the case, for sure
So when he was caught with a couple of illegal puppies in his entourage he flew off in a huff and began to criticise the Deputy Prime Minister of Australia for threatening to take the canines away from him.
Depp has frequently made childish and petulant remarks about Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce and the end result of these snide comments is that we are sick and tired of Depp.
The latest insult made by Depp is to describe Joyce as an inbred tomato, whatever that is. Perhaps Depp is familiar with inbreeding in vegetables. His delusions of grandeur may encompass agriculture as well as everything else.
His lack of respect for our laws, however, has not won him any fans Downunder.
