Ricky Gervais Airs Controversial Opinion On Nude Picture Leak
It seems the whole world is talking about the leaked nude pictures of Jennifer Lawrence and other celebrities. It all kicked off yesterday after countless snaps of celebrities were leaked on photo website 4chan,
Now Ricky Gervais has caused a stir by appearing to wade in with his opinion, implying that stars such as Jennifer Lawrence only have themselves to blame.
He wrote – before promptly deleting it: “Celebrities make it harder for hackers to get nude pics of you from the computer by not putting nude pics of yourself on your computer.”
Angry fans jumped to Jen’s aid, with one writing: “I wish @rickygervais would stop trying to defend his genius, admit he was a bit of an idiot and move on.”
Another added: “In case you missed his hastily deleted tweet, here is Ricky Gervais blaming the violation of a woman’s body on her.”
Ricky quickly leapt to his defence by saying.
“Making a joke about a thing doesn’t mean you condone that thing.
“Of course the hackers are 100% to blame but you can still makes jokes about it. Jokes don’t portray your true serious feelings on a subject
“It’s more important to spend your energy trying to stop actual bad things than to run around trying to stop jokes about bad things.
“I just had to vacuum up a big spider’s web in my office. I made sure leggy wasn’t home. I’m not a murderer. He can rebuild somewhere else.”
What do you think, are those attacking Gervais taking it all a little bit too seriously? Or do they have a point, and is Ricky out of order?
