Amber Heard trolls Australian politician with new dog’s name

The “War on Terrier” has reignited between Amber Heard and Australia’s second-most powerful politician, who once threatened to kill her dogs.

The “Aquaman” star, 35, announced Monday she named her new dog Barnaby Joyce, after the Australian deputy prime minister.

“Meet the newest member of the Heard family, Barnaby Joyce!” Heard wrote on Twitter alongside a picture of herself holding a large, scruffy pooch.

In 2015, Joyce, who was agriculture minister at the time, threatened Heard’s Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo with deportation or death, after the actress and then-husband Johnny Depp smuggled the dogs Down Under during filming of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.”

“I think it’s kind of crazy,” Joyce, 54, responded to the “honor” on Australian morning television show “Sunrise.”

“I can’t work it out. I’d forgotten about her. She was out of my mind,” he quipped. 

“I’m in her mind, in there like a bee, buzzing around her brain.”

But the politician saved his most savage clapback for Heard’s ex-husband.

“They’re crazy guys,” Joyce said.

“But I got Johnny right — she was all ‘Johnny’s lovely, Johnny’s lovely’ — well, Johnny was a deads–t,” using an Australian term for the lowest of the low.

Heard was fined for the 2015 biosecurity breach but avoided jail after pleading guilty to providing a false immigration document — blaming a lack of sleep in an uncomfortable apology video with Depp, 58.

The Hollywood couple were mocked for their wooden appearances in the apology, which Joyce likened to a proof-of-life message.

“They look like two terrorists in a basement in Lebanon,” he said.

The pooch-smuggling scandal reignited in October when Australian officials, with the help of the FBI, launched a perjury investigation into claims that Heard demanded Depp lie under oath about why they didn’t declare the dogs at the border, the Daily Mail reported.

Joyce could barely contain his excitement at the prospect that Heard could face perjury or subornation of perjury charges for inducing a false testimony.

“There’s still a question about perjury around her,” he said on “Sunrise.”

“They’ve got some questions to answer.”

Heard got custody of Pistol and Boo when their divorce was settled in January 2017.
