Ricky Gervais SLAMMED Hollywood During the Golden Globe Awards
If you missed the Golden Globes Sunday night, you missed one of the biggest attacks on Hollywood I’ve ever seen. To top it all off, it was coming from someone in Hollywood (kind of…he’s British).
Ricky Gervais, who hosted the awards show ripped into Hollywood so bad that it left everyone in the audience cringing.
According to Fox News,
Stars from films like “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “Rocketman” and “The Irishman” as well as shows like “Big Little Lies,” “The Crown” and “Barry” were in attendance but the comedian and host was undeterred by the many famous faces staring back at him.
He called out the many stars in the room for their relationship to large corporations like Apple, Amazon and Disney.
“Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing made by a company that runs sweatshops in China,” he said.” So you say you’re ‘woke’, but the companies you work for, Apple, Amazon, Disney… If ISIS had a streaming service you would be calling your agents.”
Gervais then mocked the stars in attendance for their relation to the late sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. Gervais declared that Epstein didn’t kill himself, prompting groans from the crowd.
“Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care.”
Gervais then went on to joke about Felicity Huffman and her college admission scandal incident saying, “You all look lovely all dolled up, you came here in your limos. I came here in a limo and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman. It’s her daughter I feel sorry for. That must be the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to her. And her dad was in ‘Wild Hogs,’ so…”
Probably the biggest diss he gave to the audience was this though,
“You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. If you win, come up, accept your little award tonight, come up, accept it, thank your agent and your God, and f*** off. No one cares about your views on politics or culture.”
