Ricky Gervais Body Slams All His Trolls In One Fell Swoop
I feel sorry for those who haven't ever gotten flack off a 'Works at: full time fucking legend' 15-year-old over social media, or been called a 'leftie' when you express any non-Nazi belief. It's really funny and, ironically, empowering.
Someone who gets flack aplenty is Ricky Gervais - someone who was arguably born solely to serve as a dartboard for the anonymous arrowmen of Twitter.
He doesn't give a shit about trolls. "No teenager living in his parents' basement can affect the life of a person floating on a lilo in his own pool," he apparently told the Daily Mail.
"If someone way back had said to me: 'OK, Ricky, you're nearly 40. You have an average job. Soon you're going to be incredibly famous and have money beyond what you could ever imagine, and be friends with Bowie, but every so often some blogger is going to say something mean about you. Do you want it or not?' Yes!"
I feel him. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never sour the scrambled egg and beans tortilla wraps I eat on the reg.
Here's some of his great moments...
