Will Smith Oscars slap: Ricky Gervais weighs in with the joke he would have told


Ricky Gervais has finally weighed in on slapgate, revealing the savage joke he would have told if he had been hosting the Oscars.

Renowned for roasting celebrities, Gervais has hosted the Golden Globes five times, delivering with relish one-liners that have punctured some of the biggest egos in the business.

“I’ll get it out of the way. I have not got any Will Smith material,” Gervais reportedly said during a show on Thursday.

“I trended when that happened and I was not even there. What has it got to do with me? People were going ‘What would have happened if Ricky Gervais had been (hosting)?’

“Well, nothing as I would not have made a joke about his wife’s hair. I would have made a joke about her boyfriend.”

Gervais’ joke is reference to Pinkett Smith’s years-long affair with R&B singer August Alsina.
