Ricky Gervais is still taking a lot of heat from Hollywood celebs’ white knights in the media and elsewhere for having the temerity to mock and skewer them at the Golden Globes. And after having a few days to think about it, Gervais is really sorry for all the trouble he’s caused.
Except no he isn’t. Not even a little bit:
I didn't roast Hollywood for being a bunch of liberals. I myself am a liberal. Nothing wrong with that. I roasted them for wearing their liberalism like a medal. I'm such a snowflake, liberal, I can't even really hate them for it. But my job is to take the piss. I did that. ? pic.twitter.com/bYwqxiyeKu

And he did it so very well.
Zero justification necessary, Ricky! You were honest, hysterical, and did a flawless job calling them out on their hypocrisy. BRAVO!

I don't give a s*** what you are Ricky, as long as you make me laugh. And you always do ?
