While most hardworking Americans probably didn’t even realize the Academy Awards show took place last night, British actor and comedian Ricky Gervais ripped into Hollywood elites prior to the event.

After a Twitter user asked what his first joke would be if he were hosting the Oscars, Gervais replied, “I can’t wait to hear all your inspirational speeches about equality, and it’s great that the 3 hours you’re here tonight is the only time your badly paid migrant house staff will get some time off to sleep this week.”

In another tweet responding to the question, Gervais wrote, “It’s great to see such diversity in the room tonight. Rich sex pests of all shapes and sizes.”

Gervais recently hosted the 2020 Golden Globes awards where he slammed celebrities for their cozy relationships to big corporations such as Disney, Apple and Amazon.

“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,” he said.” So you say you’re ‘woke’, but the companies you work for, Apple, Amazon, Disney… If ISIS had a streaming service you would be calling your agents.”

Gervais also mocked actor Leonardo DiCaprio, saying, “Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and, by the end, his date was too old for him.Even Prince Andrew is like, ‘Come on Leo, mate. You’re nearly 50.”

Gervais warned celebrities against giving “woke” acceptance speeches, telling them,”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.”

It’s safe to say Gervais should probably host every Hollywood awards show.
