Ricky Gervais is still taking heat for his hosting performance at The Golden Globes last Sunday! The British comic, known for his dry wit, created a storm of controversy because he razzed some of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
Apparently, superstars who make zillions of dollars cannot take a joke.
TMZ reports that John Travolta said the Golden Globes were “more like a roast” than an awards show.
Hollywood hot shot Judd Apatow hosted the Producers Guild Awards in Los Angeles last night and spent a lot of time slamming Ricky Gervais. The British comic is still getting major fall out over the fact he was “mean” to Hollywood superstars.Apatow told the Hollywood Reporter that he thought Gervais was “mean” and at the Producer’s Guild Awards Apatow said, “He had that joke about the guy on ‘Lost’ [Jorge Garcia]. He said he ate everybody else. Let’s be honest: Ricky Gervais just lost weight. Even now, he’s four pounds away from not being allowed to do a joke like that. Did he lose weight just to make fat jokes? You think that’s how mean he is?”
Across the globe, media in other countries are starting to make fun of Americans and Hollywood because of the continued whining over Ricky Gervais! The Guardian, one of the top British newspapers, weighed in on the drama surrounding the Golden Globes.
The Guardian said, “Was Gervais funny? Oh, who even cares? He was rude, bitchy, made potentially actionable statements about celebrity Scientologists, sent Robert Downey Jr into a teenage hissy fit, and all things considered, deserves an OBE for Services to Ego Deflation.”
What do you think? Does Hollywood need to get over it?
