Ricky Gervais Got Into A Twitter Fight With This Woman And Is Refusing To Back Down
April 20, 2015
Comedian Ricky Gervais is not backing down after firing shots at trophy hunters for killing beautiful creatures in the wild. It all started when he shared this photo of trophy hunter Rebecca Francis posing with her latest kill.
Well done. You managed to shoot a stationery, 14 foot peaceful creature with a high velocity rifle. Very sporting. pic.twitter.com/Xuz7F5A3YT— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 11, 2015
The tweet instantly went viral on social media.
My post about the giraffe hunter was seen by 27 million people on Twitter & Facebook in just one day. Keep up the good work. It all helps :)— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 12, 2015
But he had no intentions of stopping there. He shared another photo of Rebecca Francis.
What must've happened to you in your life to make you want to kill a beautiful animal & then lie next to it smiling? pic.twitter.com/DyYw1T5ck2— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 13, 2015
Francis tried to defend herself claiming that she killed the giraffe after it was old and close to death because the locals needed food. Ricky wasn't buying it...
After killing that giraffe out of the kindness of her heart and feeding the poor locals she had these for pudding. pic.twitter.com/P3nP4ACDKI— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 16, 2015
This Tofu & Rice was old and sad and wanted me to kill it. Now I will eat it. pic.twitter.com/5vsstpUZaL— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 16, 2015
The trophy hunter tried to play the sex card next, claiming Ricky was "bullying" her for being a female hunter.
"I kill lions, giraffes & bears with guns & bows and arrows then pose grinning. Why don't people like me? Must be because they're sexist"— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 17, 2015
So he made his point very clear.
We need to stamp out this terrible sexism in the noble sport of trophy hunting. The men & women that do it are EQUALLY vile & worthless.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 18, 2015
Ricky also made clear that he wasn't attacking hunting in general. He said: "I wish people would stop confusing hunting to eat and hunting for thrills, tusks, or to hang an endangered species on the f**king wall."
And he's on a mission now...
These psycho trophy hunters always have stuff about their family being everything to them on their profiles. Elephants love their family too— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 18, 2015
The trophies I'm proudest of are the memories of all those times I didn't kill a beautiful, majestic, endangered species for no reason.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 18, 2015
Imagine getting all dressed up to look good knowing you're about to murder a baby elephant's mother and take a selfie with it.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) April 18, 2015
