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.”

It’s Ricky Gervais, what did you expect?

The notorious pot-stirrer and five-time host wasted no time in making the crowd extremely uncomfortable during his opening monologue at the 77th annual 7073彩票注册en Globe Awards in Sunday. Just ask Apple AAPL, +2.85%7073彩票注册 CEO Tim Cook:
