This wasn’t the first time Depp’s made fun of his apology. Now he-who-is-accused-of-tomatodom has responded to Depp’s insults. But before we get to his retorts, here’s a rundown of everything else that was said on Monday night:
Kimmel noted that some were calling the apology Depp’s “greatest performance ever.” Depp, meanwhile (not dissimilar to his other performances) said he didn’t watch it afterwards because he “didn’t want to kill” himself. He said, “The choice they made to utilize the taxpayers’ dollars to globally chase down a couple of teacup Yorkies and give them 50 hours to live, I realized the badness of my ways — I was repenting.”
As Time notes, many Australians — even those who openly dislike Joyce — took issue with Depp’s smugness regarding the country’s quarantine laws. And today at a press conference, the Sydney Morning Herald reports that Joyce said he’s “turning into Johnny Depp’s Hannibal Lecter. I’m inside his head, I’m pulling little strings and pulling little levers. Long after I’ve forgotten about Mr. Depp, he’s remembering me.” He expressed gratitude towards Depp for the free global publicity surrounding the country’s tight biosecurity laws.
Oh, and here’s a related song:
