Not too long ago the Golden Globes Award show took place, hosted by the hilarious comedian, Ricky Gervais. As plenty of you have most probably heard, he verbally roasted everyone under the sun, including Scarlett (would impregnate), Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Robert Downey Jr., Tim Allen, Bruce Willis, and naturally Scientology. Realistically he took a verbal shot at almost everybody involved in the show whatsoever. The issue I have is, what's America's issue with it? Take a look for yourselves.
Apparently hundreds of thousands of people are "upset" at his behavior as a host. In the United States we witness brutal, abhorrent violence on network television on a daily basis. We watch and discuss raep, murder, and even cannibalism on our favorite cop dramas and the evening news (I use the word news lightly). Does a chubby Brit poking fun at our celebrities really aggravate that many of you? I'm still trying to figure out what the goofy-looking, tea and crumpet eating English prick has gotten all of this hate for. Sure he roasted them. Of course it's not generally done with that amount of brashness at an award show, but that's why it was a great performance. His jokes are on point, hilarious, and absolutely relevant.
Doesn't NBC like ratings? Honestly, the only viable conclusion I can come up with is that he made the Hollywood Forum Press and Scientology mad. These are two very powerful organizations/institutions, and his few off-the-cuff remarks about them both were hilariously harsh - not to mention true. According to several sources, Gervais will never host another Golden Globes again. Personally, I don't know what you wieners all have your panties in a bunch over. The man is hilarious. I say beg him to host the show again in 2012.
