Ricky Gervais Responds To Backlash After Going Scorched Earth On Hollywood Liberals

(Tea Party 247) – The left is now calling left-wing atheist Ricky Gervais “right-wing” because he decided to brutally, ruthlessly slam all the snobby Hollywood liberals that everyone knows we all resent.

On January 6th, the day after Gervais hosted the Golden Globes, where he unleashed his overdue torrent of mockery on the glitterati, Vanity Fair reporter Mark Harris ranted on Twitter that Gervais had been “yelling” at celebrities who “used their stage time to say valuable things.”

You know you’ve reached peak elitist when you’re defending members of the entertainment industry for their sickening virtue signaling.

“Here’s my Ricky Gervais problem: The idea that celebrities are not only pampered babies but hypocrites who cause the problems they make speeches deploring and should therefore shut up and act/sing/be grateful is a right-wing talking point, and an especially stupid one,” he wrote.

“It’s not an act of speaking truth to power or of bravery to attack celebs on that front—it’s a tired way of scolding people into silence because you don’t like what they’re saying, and saying that he’s ‘calling out’ the hyper privileged is just the same thing in a new guise,” Harris whined on.

“You’ll never go broke ending a night scowling at celebrities and saying, ‘Get drunk, do your drugs, [expletive] off,’ which I think were his last words on the show. There will always be people to say, ‘Yeah! You tell ’em!’ But tell ’em what? ‘[expletive] off’ isn’t a stance. It’s a tantrum.”

Gervais was about as patient with Harris as he was with hypocritical “woke” celebrities.

“How the [expletive] can teasing huge corporations, and the richest, most privileged people in the world be considered right wing?” the comedian wrote on Twitter.

Earlier, he took to Twitter to thank his fans for the positive response–as plenty of people from both sides of the political aisle emphatically appreciated his comments at the awards ceremony.

“Thanks for all your amazing comments about my Golden Globes monologue. Best reaction ever and that means a lot to me,” he wrote.

“I had a blast but thank [expletive] it’s over, so I can get back to my real job of editing #AfterLife2 and touring #SuperNature. Make Jokes, Not War.”

Ha!

The Epoch Times details some of the highlights of his speech:

“I know he’s your friend but I don’t care. You had to make your own way here in your own plane, didn’t you?” he said.

The writer and director opened his speech by referencing actress Felicity Huffman and her imprisonment for a college admissions scandal involving her daughter.

“I also came here in a limo and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman,” he joked.

The former star of the BBC’s “The Office” criticized Hollywood figures for advocating certain causes but turning a blind eye to the companies that pay them, singling out Apple while its CEO Tim Cook sat in the audience.

“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.

“Well, you say you’re woke but the companies you work for in China—unbelievable. Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service you’d call your agent, wouldn’t you?”

Elsewhere in his speech, Gervais jokingly accused the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which decides who win the coveted Golden Globes awards, of being “very, very racist.”

Concluding his speech, the comedian told this year’s winners that they should avoid talking about politics when making their acceptance speeches as they are “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,” he said, referencing the 17-year-old Swedish environmental activist.

  1. Finally, someone else who is bold enough to stand up and tell it like it is. The truth hurts so I guess that’s why you are being replaced by 2 bimbos for next year’s presentations. Thank you for your opening monologue that needed to be said years ago. I went to a Barbara Streisand concert about 5 years ago and she took her stage time to bash the Republican party. No one, who pays good money to see an artist, should be subjected to their rants just because they have a captive audience ! Ricky, keep up your honest reviews
    and comments about ALL the CORRUPT HOLLYWOOD SCUM !

  2. Mr.Ricky,
    They should give some kind of reward for all those Great remarks you gave I did see the program
    but what I heard then had to see your opening monologue I was busting into tears so thank you
    It was time to let loose on them Hollywood Liberals

  3. Great job Ricky, most of these actors, could care less about had working Americans, all they care about is the money they spend to go see their movies. People are sick of their views on politics, there actors and actresses getting paid to do a job, not to hear their views on political issues, like gun control, my comment on this get rid of your bodyguards and their guns!!!! hippocrits. As if anyone of them could be president of this country, I’m sure they could act like one. Act is about all.

  4. I loved Ricky Gervais! But what’s this “called out the left” bullshit? Even he questions what’s right-wing about questioning the motives of spoiled celebrity brats that don’t know anything of the real world? Neither does our POTUS – he’s just a dumb, spoiled, privileged former gameshow host himself! Unfortunately he’s also a criminally insane moron with a host of undereducated hillbillies buying his BS.

    • At least he is pro life, pro economy, pro second amendment, pro capitalism, and pro energy, pro Israel. Yep, he’s not subtle, opinionated and a bit crass but my 401K has never looked better. My employment opps have never been better. Enough so i quite my job and got another one so close to home I can bike there. My gas prices low enough I can drive my F250 and not cry. I can CCW knowing I can defend as needed. Plus most important of all the doctors ripping unborn children out of a womb one piece at a time will have to work hard at it knowing that my tax dollars will not be supporting it. God bless him and more importantly God bless the USA. BTW I wasn’t born here I earned my citizenship. The greatest achievement of my life.

    • I always like to hear from the insane left idiots that have Trump derangement syndrome. You are so in Hate with Trump you can’t see anything good. True his is not the skinny socialist of late regime that gave BILLIONS of dollars to Iranian mullahs that want to kill Americans. He is actually do good for the American People. Lesley. You are truely an idiot.

  5. FINALLY SOMEONE TOLD THESE LALAWOOD ELITES JUST WHAT THEY ARE HYPOCRITES SMUG HYPOCRITES ….THEY THINK THEIR SHIT DON’T STINK AND JUMP AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO BELITTLE ANYONE WHO DARES TO PUT THEM IN THEIR PLACE !!!IF IT WASN’T FOR THE REAL AMERICAN PEOPLE THEY WOULDN’T BE LIVING IN THEIR MANSIONS,DOING DRUGS,EATING FISH EGGS AND DRINKING THEIR HIGH PRICED BOOSE …IT’S OUR MONEY THAT GOT THEM WHERE THEY ARE AND THEY SHOULD BE THANKFUL TO US FOR BUYING THEIR PRODUCTS !!!!

  6. Kudos to Ricky! I raise a glass to him for his honest beat-down against the elite leftists of hollywierd, even if he’s against Trump.

  7. And I am tired of watching many of them on the news sites espousing their opinions and being vulgar along the way. Who cares what they think? They’re just people. Nothing more. They just ‘think’ they are more and Ricky Gervais said it truthfully. I can’t even watch their movies and tv shows anymore, because they are so hypocritical.

  8. They need to be put in their place if it wasn’t for people like us they wouldn’t be living in their mansions plastic surgery Botox funny they liked trump before he became president now they hate him what a bunch of clown misinformed trolls 🤬😤🤯

    • If you resent them spending your money as it becomes their money, then stop going to movies and watching TV. All of you, can put them in their place by simply stopping your habitual media consumption!!

  9. Great opening monologue! He may have missed off a room full of elitist, pampered air heads but he gained millions more fans and supporters. That’s probably the funniest, most honest….and bravest speech ever delivered at one of these Hollywierd stroke fests ever! Well done sir….very well done.

  10. Mr. Gervais:
    I want to thank you for giving voice to thousands of working people in America
    ‘that are subject to the Robert De Niro’s, Tom Hanks, Woppie Goldberg’s, Michael Moore’s, others. Robert De Niro should be in jail. He makes threats on the president every day! Why doesn’t the FBI
    haul him in? Oh, I know why. We cannot trust the FBI, they are part of the deep state…

  11. So glad Ricky shook the place up 👍. Yes many of them socialized with Epstein and who knows what else and they kept the lid on what Harvey Weinstein has been doing all these years.Plenty more of these abusers in Hollywood who just haven’t been outed yet ! Also I don’t pay to listen to their political views I pay for entertainment. If I want to hear political views I will go to a rally or speakers event .

  12. I WAS EMPLOYED BY THE MOVIE INDUSTRY AFTER HIGH SHCOOL, AND WORKED WITH SOME OF THE MOST WELL KNOWN ACTORS AND ACTRESSES, ALONG WITH YOUNG EXTRAS ON MOVIE SETS AND TV SHOWS. I WAS JUST OUT OF HIGHT SCHOOL AND GOING INTO COLLAGE. I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED IN THEIR LACK OF CARING ABOUT ANYTHING OR ANY ONE EXCEPT THEMSELVES. I ONLY WORKED FOR ABOUT 4 MONTHS IN THE INDUSTRY AND I KNEW THESE PEOPLE WERN’T FOR ME OR THE LIFE STYLE I WANTED, WITH THAT SAID I PROCEEDED ON THE COLLEGE AND JOINED THE REAL WORLD. TO BAD THE YUTH OF THIS COUNTRY IDOLIZE THESE PEOPLE AND USE THEM AS ROLL MODELS.
    GREAT JPB RICKY!!!

  13. “The idea that celebrities are not only pampered babies but hypocrites who cause the problems they make speeches deploring and should therefore shut up and act/sing/be grateful.”

    Works for me.

  14. my man Alice Cooper once said if you listen to celebrities your an idiot,because theyre job is to entertain you not educate

  15. I Loved his “rant”. Most if us are sick and tired of CELEBRITIES, who fly around in private jets, have maids, agents, drivers, dressers hairdressers, etc, etc… Tell US how to save the planet… If you want to help the poor, give away some of Your millions$$$$ you get, PER MOVIE. We, and many in my area, are boycotting movies if their actors are rude and vulgar about our president. If you want to be a jerk about your views, and curse and threaten Trump, I will not give any of my money to support your movies… Give it time…

    • A BIG AMEN TO THAT. BOYCOTT THEIR MOVIES AND IT WILL HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS. I didn’t watch it just saw the excerpts on the news.

  16. I never enjoyed a speech more then the Ricky Gervais monologue on the Golden Globes. Watching the looks on the audience was a joy. They had the nerve to look offended. Most of them will never agree with what he said because they are arrogant enough to think their opinions are what the public wants to hear, Surprise most of us are thinking ,Please shut up. No one wants to hear anything from a wealthy, hypocritical, self-serving jackal! Thank you Mr Gervais for saying to them what most of us have been thinking but did not have the opportunity.

    • You mean something like thump man using up over $287 million of the presidents salary to play golf which he gets to on air force one. Oh and making sure his friends can write off their private jets. And yes most of them do contribute a lot to those in need. And they do not even try to justify child abuse, lying, and calling your daughter a good piece of ass. Thank God for the intelligentsia. I just wish that we didn’t have the electoral college. First of all it nullifies votes. Also there would be over 4000 of our children that would still be alive and a million Iraqis. and we would have the laws still in effect that would help with climate change. Now I know that Republicans don’t let facts get in the way of their opinions, but just in case. Pulitzer prize winning fact check site Politifact.com, or the award winning factcheck.org.

  17. Best Golden Globes ever. The celebs have been lecturing the rest of us for decades..Ricky just said the truth. Good for him!!!

    • To Carol if it wasn’t for electoral college east coast and west coast would elect every president. How is that counting the votes of everyone. The whole rest of Nation is stuck with your stupid decisions no thanks.!!

    • And don’t even get me started on fake climate change. Arson arrest r up 100 % in Australia . Not climate change idiots with fire

  18. Hollywood types get told off in this manner every day on Twitter.It is amusing to see it done right to their faces. Gervais gave them what they deserved. Hypocrisy of the Left abounds on Twitter and Facebook.If one gets really good at what Gervais just did, that person quickly gets cast off of those platforms.

  19. Solo la verdad como argumento, despierta un entusiasmo como el que desató la intervención de este excelente comediante.EL FUE EL GRAN GANADOR DEL CERTAMEN..

  20. For somebody in show business it is a brave thing to call these people out because it can end your own career. And what he said was funny, not because he was joking, but because he was telling it straight and they’re not used to that from one of their own.

  21. Whether he meant it or not, Gervais said what so many people have been thinking for years, every since these awards ceremonies took a turn into the dark side and left class at Hell’s gate. He was brilliant and ;pulled no punches and I thank him for saying everything he said. Celeb status is not Nobel prize worthy and these less than world knowledge experts should just do what they do best, play act!

  22. As is known! No one wants to hear the real truth and these poor Dummywood celebs. were so wrapped up in their own self importance that they more than likely didn’t hear a word he said. Because that would have required paying attention to something besides themselves. But for sure he told it exactly as it IS! And that ignorant reporter must have been trying to gather some brown nose points with his rebuttal of Ricks speech. After all someone has to stand up for those poor insulted “snowflake airheads” Wonder how many used up most of their party dust that night! Must have been some real big hang overs and detox needed the next morning! Such a worthless way to waste life! I feel so sorry for them! YEA! SURE! LOL!

  23. Laughed my butt off when I heard what he said to those spoiled brats. About time someone, one of their own, put them in their places. Hands down man of the year for 2020 already.

  24. I loved it, and Ricky is fantastic in his show on Net Flex, and pretty much everything. But come on guys, let’s admit it once and for all, global warming is real!!! and we better act on it… don’t shame Jennifer. Ya do celebrity’s kinda suck and are way over paid “ hell ya” and can they even hold a candle to Betty Davis, or Clark Gable or Jimmy Stewart, hell no” who by the way made 350.00 a week under contract . But let’s be friends and love each other and truly care… well all be better for it.

  25. How can you not Love this. Finally someone with the gall to actually say what 70 percent of the public feel. Please don’t stop and maybe there are more entertainers out there that get their balls back and confirm everything said. I wail never forget the voice that spoke my words to the world.

  26. OBVIOUSLY “DENIRO” DID NOT GET NOMINATED FOR “THE IRISHMAN” BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING HIM BASH THE PRESIDENT ! EVEN THE DEMOCRAT’S ! WELL THERE’S AN F___YOU ! MR. DENIRO !!!

  27. The reason that I DON’T watch Award shows anymore is EXACTLY what Ricky was talking about ! We DON”T want these celebrities to discuss Politics, or give their opinion on WHO we should vote for ! We want them to go up to receive their Award, thank the people that made it possible for them to win, and then LEAVE THE STAGE ! By allowing them to spout their nonsense, you are alienating 1/2 the people in this Country, because we do NOT agree with them ! I would love to see Ricky Gervais HOST, EVERY Award show from now on !

  28. I have nevertheless been a fan of Mr. Gervais, but I commend him for calling out Hollywood and the Golden Globes for the hypocrites they are!

  29. As I’ve always said, if you give them enough rope they will hang themselves. The left is starting to eat their own and it’s a feeding frenzy. Failed impeachment hoaxes, failed Hollywood meltdowns, failed liberal governors and failed sanctuary cities. Wake up America! MAGA 2020!

  30. Bet DJT laughed. Bet he loved it. The liberal Hollywood elites are just as crazed as the Demorats and MSM in DC and NYC. Pray DJT just keeps ripping them up. He has showed the country how a president is supposed to run the nation. He would be much farther ahead if it wasn’t for the RINOs and Democraps in congress.

  31. Way to go Ricky.I’m still waiting for the actors who said they are going to leave the country if Donald Trump was elected to keep their word and leave.

  32. At least RG is in sync with the sentiment of the silent majority; delivering a poignant, light-hearted view . . . Because Hollywood does not get it, the Golden years are forever gone with the wind.

  33. Just goes to show how blindly left and liberal they are. They cant face what a disgrace to human race they are. They’re so brainless, they actually think some one gives a shit what they think. Most are talentless big mouthed Weinstein whores.

  34. Gervais said right up front the jokes (emphasis on Jokes) would be at their expense and that is exactly what he delivered. Who gives a crap if Harris doesn’t have a sense of humor!

  35. Ricky was so spot on. I dvr’d the show to go over the speeches, but he was so right about the hypocrisy
    In Hollywood! Boohoo about heir hurt feelings. I hate being lectured to by these overpaid boobs…
    and many of the fashions were stupid. One that stood out was Helen Mirren. She looked beautiful!

  36. I don’t watch award shows anymore and go to very few movies but thank you sir for bringing some refreshing and a good start to maybe opening those hypocrites eyes. They may have their say and a microphone but that doesn’t mean they are right. Where are they sharing their wealth?? The gowns and chauffeured limousines could put several kids through college!!

  37. Right on Ricky- you got it right! They need not lecture me and especially tell me “poor me”in the face of making millions and can live a life of luxury- money gives you choices- male or female! We’ve all been done wrong at some point time in our life- and never get a chance to get on our band box!

  38. Way to go Ricky, I loved your opening more then most movies made today.
    The Hollywood Elites got what they deserve, most too stupid to realize he was talking about them.
    Di Naro too old to understand, Tom Hanks stupid too understand, they all deserved what they got. Wish you would go on the View and tell them off,
    Whoopi With her fat ass ugly big mouth thinks she knows everything about everything. First thing she needs to do is remove the MOP from on top of her head, second is get a life.
    They all have the money to move to another country yet they sit in Hollywood flapping their jaws about nothing with even less knowledge then the person they are cutting down, mostly Trump who in my book is one of the best presidents.
    We all need to boycott The Hollywood Elites movies, I have started watching Turner Movie Classics seeing good movies when actors and actresses could act not the crap today.

  39. I thought it was the best monologue in the history of these stupid award shows.. which I don’t watch by the way. About time someone put these so called “beautiful” in their places as they try and tell everyone else how to live and think. Never in my life have I seen a group that gives more awards to themselves . Totally assured. Way to go!

  40. TRUTH IS FUNNY WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE delusional and self centered and living in a fantasy world thier face’s were worth the ticket.

  41. Flying around the world in a private jet to lecture those who can’t even afford a plane ticket on a commercial flight about saving the environment is as elitist as you can get.

  42. Best MC ever the only reason I watched the show was because of him. I have had my load of Hanks, DeNiro and all the other hollywood clowns. Atta a boy Ricky.

  43. Good for Ricky. Long time coming. Get your award, thank whomever you want and walk off the stage. The bullshit they spout has made many people stop watching these award shows. Let’s get back to the glamour of old.

  44. Who watches these stupid dumb award shows. Golden glob, Academy awards, Miss America, and all the rest are phony dumb and stupid. I would rather watch awards given to hard working Americans or the soldiers in the Military. There was a time in the Entertainment industry that good quality entertainment, movies and TV show’s. Today it’s nothing but Garbage. Hallmark, Pure flicks, and old reruns of tv shows, twenty plus years are the only entertainment worth watching.

  45. I absolutely loved it !! My wife and I laughed our asses of watching it on the news & Reddit the next day.
    Finally someone says something to the whining elite!
    It might never make a difference in the world, but, it made me f**king laugh(snort).
    Thank you Rickey

  46. In regards to Gervais using the “f’ word in his monologue and the accusations made by whoever this mark harris is I don’t remember him having a problem with deniro saying ‘f#&;k on tv in front of families including many many children. What’s the difference know it all “MARK”?

  47. Hooray for Ricky Gervais! I am so sick of the self-righteous hypocrites of Hollywood sounding out their opinions as if they knew more about the issue than I do. When I was younger I was taught that in polite society you don’t discuss religion or politics. That goes double for award shows.

    • I agree 100% with you on this one. He also made a sweet joke about how many in the audience worked with or were good friends with Jeffery Epstein and Harvey Weinstein, yet don’t wish to hear anything about that. That joke hit them the hardest because it was so true and they couldn’t do anything but sit with mouths shut and worried looks on their faces. It was EPIC!

  48. I think his remarks were on target. He never once showed disrespect to our flag and government. He is a Comedian and he was hilariously funny. His audience laughed too. Strange that these same celebrities think disrespecting our President is funny but turnaround is not fairplay. If the shoe fits, wear it!

  49. I stopped going to the movies because of the elite actors and actresses. How do they even think there political opinions matter in the slightest. I won’t watch award shows either because of them. I want to enjoy myself not Listen to their ureteric

  50. His monologue best part of show. I have decided I will only watch shows that gervais emcees.
    Another moment, making ricky’s point, poor Jennifer Anniston for her rant about Australia and the fault for the fires being global warming. Aussies have announced many many people have been arrested and charged with arson. Jennifer needs to apologize to the audiences.

    • Jennifer Anniston.. ha what a joke & a piece of poo.. wonder how many times she got it in her butt .. past around … lol 😂..
