Barnaby Joyce has hit back at Hollywood actor Johnny Depp after the Pirates of the Caribbean star described Australia's Deputy Prime Minister as apparently "inbred with a tomato".
Depp, appearing on late-night TV in the US, was asked about his long-running feud with the Nationals' leader and Agriculture Minister over Depp's two pet terriers illegally flown into the country.
Depp told host Jimmy Kimmel Mr Joyce "looks somehow inbred with a tomato."
Depp said his comments weren't a criticism of "Mr Jones" but that he "was a little worried . . . he just might explode".
Mr Joyce on Wednesday laughed off Depp's latest insults.
