MSM Attacks Gervais For Roasting Hollywood Celebs
Comedian Ricky Gervais brought his A-game to the Golden Globes as he delivered a savage roast to Hollywood in his opening monologue. It was far more memorable than anything else that happened at the Golden Globes. But many people, including the MSM, were upset by Gervais's monologue, I guess it hit a little too close to home.
The British Comedian attacked Celebs for everything from corrupt bosses to pedophilia and then told them they need to keep their political rants to themselves, something we can all appreciate.
You can watch the Clip of his opening monologue below.
Vanity Fair's Mark Harris tweeted the following about his scathing monologue
"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. >"
"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 hyperprivileged is just the same thing in a new guise. >"
"You'll never go broke ending a night scowling at celebrities and saying, "Get drunk, do your drugs, f*** 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? "F*** off" isn't a stance. It's a tantrum. >"
Apparently Harris has been living under a rock as outspoken Hollywood Celebs have been ranting and raving about Trump non-stop. Gervais is just trying to get these Hollywood libs to keep their blathering to themselves for one night.
But Harris was not the only one to go after Gervias.
"Over at the Los Angeles Times, Lorraine Ali lamented how Gervais’ trollery disrupted the sober mood at the Golden Globes.
“The [Golden Globes] mood was already sober thanks to an impeachment, threat of war with Iran and Australian bush fires. The last thing anyone needed was Ricky Gervais there, telling them they sucked,” tweeted Ali.
Sam Adams of Slate went into even more detail by ranking the jokes in Gervais’ opening monologue according to their “dickishness.”
This is how you know he did his job. He made something boring like the Golden Globes interesting and triggered the left in the process.
