Remember When Ricky Gervais Called Out Hollywood To Their Face For Being Friends With Jeffrey Epstein?

Ricky Gervais

Gotta think a lot of people are pretty nervous right now knowing that the long-anticipated Jeffrey Epstein files are finally dropping.

The first round of documents has been released from a lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell, a former associate of Epstein who was sentenced last year to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking after helping Epstein sexually abuse underage girls.

And as soon as they dropped, the entire internet rushed to see whose name was mentioned in the disgusting testimony.

Of course former president Bill Clinton was mentioned quite a few times, including an instance where one of Epstein’s victims claimed that the convicted sexual predator told her that the former president liked girls “young.”

And some of the more surprising names mentioned in the documents included Michael Jackson, magician David Copperfield, and Stephen Hawking. But there was no evidence included that any of them participated in any illegal activity.

But with so much focus on Epstein’s associates, a clip began to go viral again on social media of Ricky Gervais calling out Hollywood to their face for being friends with the sexual predator.

The video is from Gervais’ opening monologue during the 2020 Golden Globes, and you can see the room is physically uncomfortable as he rips them apart:

“He obviously didn’t kill himself, just like Jeffrey Epstein…

Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care. You had to make your own way here on your own plane, didn’t you?”


Gervais has said that he’ll never host an awards show again, but I wish he would run it back now that the Epstein files are finally being released.

You can watch the monologue in full here – and it’s well worth your time:
