Ricky Gervais pushes the WOKE army’s buttons again

Ricky Gervais is a fearless comedian who rips into Hollywood arrogance like no other. His most recent hosting job at the 2020 Golden Globes was close to brilliant in that it upsets just about everyone, a rarity in today’s culture of snowflake sensitivity.

Self-important, politically condescending, private jet flying, hypocritical Hollywood elites had to sit stone faced on a live NBC broadcast and quiver as Gervais scanned the room, methodically lancing the oversized egos of these pampered crybabies.

It was gorgeous.

God Bless the blunt truth telling of Ricky Gervais. That’s a joke, of course, because Ricky Gervais is an avowed atheist. For Hollywood elites, Gervais’s mockery of religion is his only saving grace. (That’s another religion joke, BTW).

Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook looked like he was prepping for a colonoscopy as Gervais correctly pointed out that the tech company pretends to be WOKE yet operates Chinese sweatshops. How many Apple employees watching at home must have thrown their fists into the air and roared with laughter?

Apple CEO Tim Cook did not appear to enjoy comedian Ricky Gervais torching his company on the Golden Globes telecast.

Gervais reminded the gathered stars that they had no business spewing their political ideology since most of them had attended fewer school classes than media darling climate activist teenager Greta Thunberg, a dropout.

Perhaps Gervais’ sharpest attack was aimed at all of the gathered Hollywood executives, telling the viewers that the assembled bosses are “all terrified of Ronan Farrow. He’s coming for you! Talking of all you perverts…”

Farrow’s book Catch and Kill chronicles dozens of sexual assault claims made against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, accused of raping and assaulting over 100 women trying to find acting work.

For all of Gervais’ affected roasting of hypersensitive celebs, some powerfully poignant words came from Saturday Night Live comedian/actor Kate McKinnon. In presenting a major comedy award to Ellen DeGeneres, McKinnon cited her “bravery (in going public about being gay, and) what that has meant to me and how that’s changed my life.”

LGBTQ people have been harassed, bullied, and beaten down since the beginning of time so it is moving when two famous and influential lesbians are able to share words of support in front of millions of TV viewers without it raising a ruckus.

Maybe we are finally growing up in this sexually uptight society. Maybe.

Ellen opened the gates for lots of other people to thrive professionally and personally outside of the shadows.

Of course many other Golden Globe celebrities couldn’t resist turning an awards show about great movies and shows into political grandstanding. There was the always predictable ORANGE MAN BAD Trump bashing, clucking about climate change, and a pregnant lady reminding people that she is judge and jury over whether another person lives or dies. How sweet.

Shiny trophy or baby? None of your bees wax. It’s all in mom’s values.

Just don’t call anyone fat or Lizzo will twerk you into submission.
