Ricky Gervais' Jeffrey Epstein joke

In January 2020, the British comic shocked the star-studded audience with his Golden Globes monologue by joking about Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein. In his speech, Ricky also took aim at Hollywood celebs' relationships with the financier, who killed himself in 2019, while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.

Ricky Gervais addressed the celebs at the awards show as 'perverts' in his monologue. Along with Tom Hanks, a host of celebs were in attendance, such as actors Adam Driver, Sienna Miller, Lauren Graham and many others.

Ricky had called out the stars in attendance for being friends with Jeffrey Epstein and said, "In this room are some of the most important TV and film executives in the world, from all different backgrounds. But they all have one thing in common – they’re all terrified of Ronan Farrow (famous journalist)… He’s coming for you!”

The American journalist was responsible for one of a number of exposés into the sexual misconduct of former film producer Harvey Weinstein. Ricky had then said that Jeffrey Epstein 'didn't kill himself'. Adding, "Shut up, I know he is your friend, but I don't care!"
