This feels so transparently opportunistic. It should be a federal crime to make a movie about a news story that isn't even five years old yet.
Fifteen years ago, I would have said Ricky Gervais was a comedic genius, which makes his career trajectory even more depressing to me. Or maybe I just didn't realize the type of person/comedian he was back then.
But yeah, keep on fighting to protect your art form from the "woke mob," Ricky. But maybe next time, don't let how hard you're actively trying to offend them with your dumb takes get in the way of...you know...making people laugh...
