Ricky Gervais is not one to stray from the controversy, after all, he's a comedian that consistently pushes boundaries. For him, really nothing is off-limits, but that's because he can find brevity in almost everything.
He's received backlash countless times, whether that's from him posting on social media or making comments during past hosting duties for the Golden Globes. Regardless, he takes the criticisms in stride and remains unapologetic to those who claim to be offended.
Recently, Gervais made some joking comments about transsexual people and suffice it to say, it ruffled quite a few feathers, especially with actress Patricia Arquette.
