Ricky Gervais is getting real about privilege and calling out those who live in “mansions” who are complaining about being quarantined.
In an interview with The Sun, Ricky is said to have called out “celebrities, including himself,” who are complaining about being in a mansion with a swimming pool while others are risking their lives in essential services daily.
“After this is over I never want to hear people moaning about the welfare state again, I never want to hear people moaning about nurses again,” Ricky said. “These people are doing 14-hour shifts and not complaining. Wearing masks, and being left with sores, after risking their own health and their families’ health selflessly. But then I see someone complaining about being in a mansion with a swimming pool. And, you know, honestly, I just don’t want to hear it.”
