Ricky Gervais Mocks Journalists as 'Morons' for Outrage over Golden Globes Jokes: Ricky Gervais has mocked the journalists who took his jokes at the Golden Globes seriously as “morons,” saying that they lack a basic understanding of how humor works.
Gervais tweeted late Tuesday that he was surprised to learn that some journalists were eager to run defense for entitled Hollywood stars during his celebrity-skewering performance as host of the Golden Globes on Sunday.
“I always knew that there were morons in the world that took jokes seriously, but I’m surprised that some journalists do. Surely, understanding stuff is pretty fundamental to their job, isn’t it? Just makes it funnier though, I guess,” he wrote.
