- Ricky Gervais mocked Natalie Portman’s Oscars “virtue signaling” on Twitter.
- His video showed him calling out “Hollywood perverts” who haven’t yet been brought to justice.
- Yet his anti-virtue signaling posture is itself a form of virtue signaling.
Ricky Gervais isn’t just a culture warrior; he’s on an anti-virtue signaling crusade.
When he presented the Golden Globes this year, he begged award winners to refrain from launching into trite speeches on “Worthy” causes. Now he’s mocking Natalie Portman for pulling her own trite stunt at the Oscars.
