Amber Heard has responded to Barnaby Joyce's citizenship woes in the most savage way, tweeting that she's sent him a box of kiwifruit - and hopes they pass Australian biosecurity laws.

The Australian Deputy Prime Minister discovered he was a New Zealand citizen on Monday, meaning he may be forced to resign as Australian law does not allow dual citizens to sit in parliament. 

Many on social media referenced infamous Johnny Depp and Amber Heard case, where they illegally brought their dogs Pistol and Boo into Australia.

Depp and Heard were later forced to make a now-infamous biosecurity video about the dangers of dodging customs, which was published on Mr Joyce's Facebook page.

Just as Heard was mocked for the video, she's now joining those mocking Mr Joyce online.

"To comfort Mr Joyce in his hour of need, I have sent him a box of New Zealand's finest kiwifruit (assuming this passes his biosecurity laws)," she tweeted.

Mr Joyce also threatened to kill Pistol and Boo if they did not "bugger off back to the United States".
