Last weekend, Ricky Gervais stunned fans as he launched an extraordinary foul-mouthed rant on his blog targeting the thousands of people who camped out for the Royal Wedding.
In the blog post, the unpatriotic comedian referred to the time Prince Harry provoked a storm by dressing up in a Nazi uniform for a party, as well as blasting those who had chosen to camp out ahead of last Friday’s nuptials.
He wrote, ‘I sent Prince Harry a text today offering to gag up his best man speech. (True.) He said he was fine.
‘Hmmm? If I hear he’s done any holocaust or famine shit, I will sue obviously. I also reminded him it wasn’t fancy dress.’
Gervais added, ‘On a serious note; I really like Harry. I like William too and really wish the happy couple all the best, as I would anyone on their wedding day. But… really. Enough already.
‘Who are these fucking mongs from all over the world camping out for fucking days to get a 30 second glimpse of two people from 30 yards away? Christ.
‘Still, mustn’t grumble. I suppose everyone gets a day off.’
Meanwhile, Gervais wasn’t the only celebrity to mock the big day, as Kathy Griffin joked about the length of the kiss.
In a special show entitled Kathy Griffin’s Take on the Royal Wedding, Griffin joked, ‘I made out with my dog longer than this, I did.
‘Really? Honest? Seriously? It was equated to the kind of kiss you give someone when you’re breaking up with them.’
Gervais has become famous for his controversial comments and hit the headlines when he hosted the Golden Globes earlier this year.
During the three-hour ceremony the 49-year-old insulted just about everyone in the film industry.
Taking a pop at Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp for their film The Tourist, he said, ‘Seems like everything this year was three-dimensional. Except the characters in The Tourist.‘
‘I tell you what, I’m jumping on the bandwagon, because I haven’t even seen The Tourist. Who has?’
To gasps from the Beverly Hills audience, he referred to one film featuring ‘two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay, so the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists then’.
Gervais added, ‘My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke.’
