Controversy[edit]

Ricky Gervais Twitter

1. Simply pointing out whether someone is left or right wing isn't winning the argument.
2. If a joke is good enough, it can be enjoyed by anyone.
3. It's not all about you.
4. Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.

January 8, 2020[11]

Controversy arose following Ricky Gervais's opening monologue, which was seen as his attack on the hypocrisy of Hollywood.[12][13][14][15] He poked fun at several controversial topics, such as the death of Jeffrey Epstein, the college admissions scandal, and the middle-aged Leonardo DiCaprio's preference to younger women. Gervais also sarcastically accused the Hollywood Foreign Press of racism for its lack of diversity in the "in memoriam" section, criticized Apple and Disney for their labor practices, and admonished awardees who flaunt their political views in their acceptance speeches.[13][14][15]

Gervais's remarks attained mixed reactions across the political spectrum; while conservatives highly praised Gervais,[16] journalists from liberal outlets were more critical,[17][18][19] with Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield calling his monologue "incredibly stale".[20] Of the criticism, Gervais said it was the "best ever", and later defended his jokes in a tweet.[12][13]
