Johnny Depp may have tried to blast “Barnaby Jones” on Jimmy Kimmel last night, but our Deputy PM is having none of it.
In fact, we could even say he’s topped Depp’s insult with a Silence of the Lambs reference.
“I think I’m turning into Johnny Depp’s ‘Hannibal Lecter, aren’t I?” Jones said at a press conference this morning.
“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.”
After the initial controversy of Pistol and Boo being smuggled into Australia, Jones’ response was considered an overreaction by many and he was a laughing stock worldwide.
Now, everyone is more divided about whether Depp has taken it too far or it’s still just fun and games.

Johnny Depp has appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show to prove once more that he couldn’t care less about respecting the laws and rules of countries he visits.
Depp and his wife Amber Heard faced court earlier this year for smuggling their pet dogs Pistol and Boo into Australia last year.
The Pistol and Boo saga was brought up by the charismatic host who told Depp his video apology was being considered one of his finest performances.
Depp took the opportunity to make the first dig in a series of mocking remarks.
“These are things you have to prepare a long time for to tap into the emotion that you need,” he said.
“You know I haven’t seen many of (my performances) but I wouldn’t disagree. I played that sort of anti-government.”
