Ricky Gervais Unleashes EPIC Rant Against 'Woke' Mob Calling for Censorship of Roald Dahl's Books

British comedian-actor Ricky Gervais tore into the ‘woke‘ mob calling for censorship of some of the language used in books by iconic Children’s author Roald Dahl.

Amid the recent reports that publisher Puffin is facing mounting pressure to censor words like ‘fat’ in Dahl’s most famous classics, the comedian jumped into the debate to highlight the absurdity of it all.

However, the publisher faced backlash for caving in so quickly to the woke minority’s demands.

Gervais pushed back against calls to censor Dahl’s books by taking to social media to criticize its supporters as “fragile” and “easily offended.”

The comedian also questioned whether his stand-up shows would be changed after his death to remove words like “fat” and “ugly.”

In an epic Twitter rant, Gervais wrote: “This is me pondering whether they’ll change any of the words I’ve used in my work after I’m dead, to spare those who are fragile and easily offended.

“Words like ‘fat’ and ‘ugly.’ And ‘c‘ and ‘fk.’ And ‘fat, ugly, greedy, pathetic little stupid fking c.’ Stuff like that.”

In a follow-up tweet, he shared a selfie in a hilarious and unflattering pose, saying: “I’ve changed my mind. I think we should ban the words’ fat’ and ‘ugly.’ No reason.”

Gervais frequently blasts cancel culture and censorship, also highlighted the double standard of the ‘woke’ brigade.

“It’s weird to me that adults are arguing over words in a children’s book, while at the same time, kids are watching porn on their phones,” he said.

Gervais believes that it’s paramount to maintain freedom of speech and expression, even if it means offending some people. He added, “The fact is, we can’t just keep banning things because a few people are offended. Otherwise, we’ll end up with nothing left to read, watch or say.”

Gervais made headlines in 2020 when he stood before Hollywood elites at the Golden Globes attacking everything ‘Cats,’ Jeffrey Epstein, pedophiles, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s dating history.

In 2019, Gervais said his hugely popular mockumentary series, The Office, would never have seen the light of day if it came under the chopping board of woke “outrage mobs.”

The comedian said freedom of speech is a liberty that applies to everyone regardless of their viewpoint.
