Judd Apatow Slams Ricky Gervais

49-year-old controversial comedian Ricky Gervais was the 2010 and 2011 Golden Globes.

He has recently come under much criticism for his jokes at 2011’s award ceremony.

His jokes poked fun at a number of celebrities for their run-ins with the law. Most viewers, however, responded positively to the nature of Gervais’ jokes.

While hosting the Producers Guild Awards, producer Judd Apatow said Gervais was “mean.” Gervais had made one particularly distasteful joke about Jorge Garcia, who plays Hurley on “Lost.”

Apatow stated, “He said he (Garcia) ate everybody else. Ricky Gervais just lost weight. Even now, he’s 4 pounds away from not being allowed to do a joke like that. Did he lose weight just to make fat jokes? You think that’s how mean he is?”

At the PGAs, “The King’s Speech,” which stars Colin Firth as King George VI and Geoffrey Rush as his speech therapist, beat out “The Social Network,” which stars Jesse Eisenberg as FaceBook creator Mark Zuckerberg.

“The Social Network” took Best Picture at the Golden Globes. Over the past 21 years, the PGA Best Picture winner has matched the one at the Golden Globes 14 times, even though that wasn’t the case this year.

      Apatow is a loser.

      As producer you’d think he researched who the host would be and had say in the decision.

      Gervais has never hid his style of comedy from anyone. Apatow needs to stop cowering behind his wife and celeb friends and back up his choice for host of the show he produced.

      Ricky Gervais is not he problem.

      gervais has been making fun of fat people for a long time..even before he lost weight. the whole point of comedy is to have a laugh at people including yourself. since it was an awards show celebrating hollywood, its obvious that his jokes would be about the film industry. man if these movie fellas could learn to laugh at themselves less of them would have to resort to drugs and prostitutes to have a good time

      Saying “Judd Apatow Slams Ricky Gervais” is an outright lie. To not understand that Apatow was joking in the exact same manner as Gervais, and that not none of it should be taken seriously, shows you are one huge f***ing idiot. Actually a better word might be hack. You want the truth? Why not go check out Apatow’s Twitter page or Gervais’ blog, then shut up about things you clearly don’t understand. It’s called satire, look it up you unprofessional, trash-peddling, lying hack.
