At the Golden Globes:

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. Well, you say you're woke but the companies you work for in China — unbelievable. Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service you'd call your agent, wouldn't you?

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 **** off, OK? It's already three hours long. Right, let's do the first award.

I saw! It’s beautiful 😂

I hope he doesn’t end up in a ditch tomorrow morning under mysterious circumstances.

Although apparently he does these rant/roast speeches each year he’s hosted.

Ricky Gervais

Pretty much a non-story really. Ricky is known for doing this sort of thing at the Golden Globes.

Hes backing JKRowling over her transwomen tweet. Culturally he has balls of steel.

As fun as this was, I was more disturbed by Michelle Williams bragging about killing her baby to win a hunk of metal...while carrying a child.

sure that Ricky Gervais will not stop using his iPhone, Apple Watch and Mac, despite roasting Apple on-stage.

He's not the one being sanctimonious and hypercritical about them.

The funniest moment, for me, was when the actress (don’t know her name) came on following Gervais’ speech, and did the exact same thing he told them not to do :lol:

He likened apple to ISIS, so I would assume he condemns the actions of the corporation. They're hypocrites for standing up for issues despite working for unethical businesses, they should just shut up about it. But the same hypocrisy apparently transcends him. He has spoken up about things before and in his own speech, he tells others to stop talking about politics, while doing just that..

Specifically in the Golden Globes? Either way I don't think you can call him the "Hollywood elite". He doesn't live in LA and he is actually educated.

Champagne socialists are now further upset that Gervais attained hundreds of thousands of new Twitter followers, many of whom conservative.
