Hollywood believes they know what is best for the American people.
They use every opportunity they can to attack those who support President Trump.
But Ricky Gervais delivered two lines at a Hollywood awards show that shut them up for good.
As the host of the Golden Globe awards, comedian Ricky Gervais used his opportunity to take on the elites in Hollywood head-on.
During his opening statement, he made clear that he wasn’t going to put up with their political opinions while accepting awards, telling them to “f*** off.”
Gervais told them they are “in no position to lecture the public about anything” and that most of them have “spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.”
He also took aim at Apple TV’s new “The Morning Show,” initially giving it praise “superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing,” before adding “made by a company that runs sweatshops in China.”
The comedian then went on to ask the entire audience of Hollywood stars, “If ISIS started a streaming service, you’d call your agent, wouldn’t you?”
Casting the industry town as hypocritically woke – with a Jeffrey Epstein joke thrown in for good measure – the notoriously scathing British comic advised Golden Globe winners to skip the moralizing. Said Gervais, “Thank your agent and your God and…” The rest was bleeped, but he seemed to say something along the lines of “f*ck off.”
“You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything,” Gervais cautioned. “Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.”
Apple TV’s woke The Morning Show, Gervais said, was “made by a company that runs sweat shops in China.” If ISIS started a streaming service, he said, Hollywood would call their agents.
Individual stars didn’t get through the opening monologue completely unscathed, if none were as skewered quite so efficiently as Gervais’ former punching bag Mel Gibson. Felicity Huffman, Gervais said, made the license plate on his car, Joe Pesci looks like Baby Yoda and Cats‘ Judi Dench chose that movie because she “likes nothing better than plunking down on the carpet, lifting her leg and licking her [BLEEP].” James Corden, the host said, was “a fat pussy, and he was in Cats.”
They clearly didn’t expect Gervais to take them on the way that he did.
And naturally, Hollywood stars are furious.
It’s probably fair to assume this is the last award show they will let Gervais host.
