Yikes. It was not a g'day for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The married movie stars just apologized on camera for falsifying immigration documents to smuggle their dogs into Australia. The Internet took note of the painfully awkward video, comparing it to a hostage situation.
You may recall the hubbub about Heard bringing the dogs into the country last May while Depp was filming the fifth "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. Heard pleaded guilty Monday to falsifying the docs, to bring her Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo into Oz. She will not serve jail time, as prosecutors dropped the charges, and both Depp and Heard issued a video apology to the Queensland court.
As People reported, the video was posted on the Facebook page of Barnaby Joyce, the Australian politician who initially threatened to euthanize the dogs:
Amber Heard: "I'm truly sorry that Pistol and Boo were not declared. Protecting Australia is important."
Johnny Depp: "Declare everything when you enter Australia."
Well, now the Internet is declaring this a hostage video:
