Comedian Ricky Gervais mocked non-binary singer Sam Smith’s outfit at the 2023 BRIT Awards in London on Saturday.
Smith donned a black latex inflatable jumpsuit by British designer Harri that featured high rounded shoulders with balloon-like sleeves and legs that pointed outward. Gervais mocked Smith on Twitter with a photo shopped picture of himself wearing the singer’s outfit with the caption, “The worst thing about being famous is the lack of privacy. I can’t even walk down the street without people looking and pointing.”
Gervais has poked fun at Hollywood in the past, most notably during his monologue at the Golden Globes in 2020 where he called out many of the stars in attendance for their relationship to large corporations like Apple, Amazon and Disney.
“Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing made by a company that runs sweatshops in China,” he said.” So you say you’re ‘woke’, but the companies you work for, Apple, Amazon, Disney… If ISIS had a streaming service you would be calling your agents.”
He also trolled celebrities in the room for their relationship to sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, arguing he didn’t kill himself.
“Shut up, I know he’s your friend, but I don’t care,” Gervais said in response to groans from the crowd.
