Last week British comedian completely roasted celebrities at the Golden Globes. Basically he told them they were out of touch with regular people and should not lecture us on things that they know nothing about and he was spot on. I agree wholeheartedly with everything he said, but I also think he should follow his own advice and shut up about hunting.
Ricky Gervais is a PETA award-winning anti-hunter, who seems to get his rocks off by bulling hunters online. According to the Sportsmen’s Alliance, Gervais has routinely used social media to target hunters that his 10 million followers then threaten publicly, privately and professionally – including death threats.
He really seems to single out women. Melissa Bachman, Rebecca Francis, Tess Thompson Talley, Kendel Jones, and others have been targeted by Gervais. I imagine he views them as easy targets.
What makes Gervais even more of a hypocrite is that he is a meat-eater. He decries the killing of an animal by hunters all while stuffing his face with meat that other people have killed. He has no problem with factory farming but protein harvested by hunters is somehow evil.
So while I applaud his take on celebrity culture that he himself is deeply ensconced, he is just as out of touch as the rest of them. Here is the ended his glorious monologue and now-famous statement.
So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re 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.
So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent, and your God and f*** off, OK? It’s already three hours long. Right, let’s do the first award.Ricky Gervais
Mr. Grervais you need to follow your own advice.
Don’t use your platform to spew anti-hunting nonsense. You’re in no position to lecture the public about hunting. You know nothing about the real world and you know even less about conservation.
So stick to you comedy routine, make fun of celebrities, and f*** off, OK?
