Ricky Gervais Tweets Against Cultural Appropriation, Trolls Critics
CNTL+ALT+Yes, we know Ricky Gervais is a lefty. He's an atheist. Not really a big fan of guns. An animal rights activist too. But he's solid when it comes to free speech. As long as we're on the same page there, we can debate everything else. Okay? Okay.
The comedian shared his thoughts on cultural appropriation.
Not sure if he was thinking of something specific. We're not wanting for examples (see Crazed SJWs Now Accuse Bruno Mars of ‘Cultural Appropriation’ and Keziah Daum Wants Verification After Twitter Sicced Bullies On Her). He could have been bored, trolling for the s***ts and giggles, knowing how people are easily triggered.
Twitter didn't disappoint.

@DerrickClifton You've hit the nail on the head with extremism distorting stuff.— Ricky Gervais (@Ricky Gervais)1526238814.0
The most fascinating aspect of our Brave Trump World is seeing how far the left goes. So extreme is the move, it's turning off other liberals. Not that Gervais is going to come to the range with us anytime soon to fire off some Walthers. After church. Before grabbing some smoked brisket.
But at least we can all have a fun conversation with each other.
Free speech gives people the right to offend and be offended. But some are confusing "being offended" as a right of its own. No.
