Ricky Gervais Blasts Celebs "Wokeness" at the Golden Globes and the Reactions Were Priceless

By

To call Rickey Gervais a controversial comedian would probably be the understatement of the year. So when the British entertainer was asked to host the 2020 Golden Globes again, those who watching the event braced themselves for a no-holds barred series of vicious punchlines, self-deprecating humor, and a ton of roasts at the attendees' expense.

But few could have expected just how much he would lay into everyone.

When I say everyone, I literally mean everyone. First, Ricky queued up his devastating bit by talking about Apple's decision to launch a streaming service. CEO Tim Cook, who was in attendance, immediately began to look uncomfortable once the camera panned to him at the mention of the Cupertino-based tech giant.

"Apple roared into the TV game with The Morning Show, a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company that runs sweatshops in China."

His savage criticism didn't stop at a corporation, but also targeted the actors, performers, filmmakers, and pretty much everyone involved in the industry. "Well, you say you're woke, but the companies you work for... unbelievable. Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service, you would call your agent, wouldn't you?"

His commentary was met with groan-tempered laughter from the audience, but he went even further.
