Forums - Politics Discussion - Ricky Gervais kicks off the Golden Globes telling Hollywood to f*** off

During tonight’s Golden Globe Awards, Gervais praised “The Morning Show” as “a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing.” The camera panned to a smiling Tim Cook in the audience, but Gervais’ comments took a sharp turn:

"Apple rolled into the TV game with a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company that runs sweatshops in China. So, you say you’re woke, but the companies you work for, unbelievable. Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service, you’d call your agent, wouldn’t you? If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re not in a 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. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god, and fu*k off."

Maybe now A list celebrities will think twice before speaking out of their asses

Big oof.

Oh boy... It needed to be said.

He's never hosting again. 😂

Well... This just made my day.

I agree with him. If those in Hollywood want to express their political views then save it for their Twitter or other social media like everyone else.

Yeah, this is the fourth time now. Everyone said that after the first which made TGG a success it hasn't been in years. They'll want him to host every year if he takes the gig cause, well, money and shit.


China Numba wan!!

That speech turned me on.

Never really found him funny, but this was glorious, and very, very awkward, but in the best possible way. A well deserved pasting.

Never really liked Gervais but omfg it needed to be said and I'm glad he did it the way he did. Props to him, takes guts to call out your peers.


I do agree with him and have been ignoring political speeches of celebrities because first they don't know what they are talking about and second they live in Ivory Towers and have nill understanding of what the general population live of.
