Ricky Gervais returned to host the Golden Globes for the fifth time and what he says is probably his last. The contentious comedian, who is known for his colorful and often abrasive form of comedy, refused to hold back as he called out the “Hollywood elite” sitting in the room with him.

Gervais’ jokes throughout his opening monologue drew in a lot of mixed reactions from the crowd -- from uproarious laughter to uncomfortable groans. Tom Hanks’ reactions were so animated, they have since gone viral.

Gervais worked through this collection of celebrity roasts and topical jokes before getting to his main point: acceptance speeches. “You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything,” Gervais said in an almost serious tone. “You know nothing about the real world. Most of you’ve spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god and [expletive] off. Okay?”

The internet was in a whirlwind following this speech, with people either agreeing with or lambasting Gervais on his own “hypocrisy.” The culmination of these discussions led to the number one trending topic on Twitter: #HollywoodHypocrites.

There were many criticizing the message Gervais was sending, likening it to a form of censorship. Many are even turning the logic around and calling Gervais himself a hypocrite.

Some of his other jokes seemed to have caused some steam. For example, he called out Felicity Huffman, who was involved with the college admissions scandal earlier this year. He also discussed Martin Scorsese and his infamous takes on Marvel and superhero movies, calling them “theme parks.” Gervais said he agrees with him but says that Scorsese hasn’t been around theme parks anytime recently, joking that he is too short to ride the rollercoasters.
