Yikes! Ricky Gervais took a low blow at Ben Affleck at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards while introducing his buddy Matt Damon by bringing up his alleged nanny affair! So was it all in good fun, or just a little too brutal? We have the details on the nasty jab, here!
This is just brutal! Ricky Gervais took a jab at Ben Affleck during their Golden Globes while bringing up presenter Matt Damon, who’s the only one Ben can be faithful to according to Ricky. Matt seemed to take the diss to his BFF in stride, but man, that was harsh! See the awkward moment right here.
The Golden Globes are notorious for getting a little risque with their humor, especially with Ricky as the host, but did he go a little too far this time? After mocking Sean Penn, and hating on Caitlyn Jenner’s fatal car accident, he went for Ben. He used his time introducing Matt to the stage to present to take a swipe at his best buddy. While introducing the handsome star of The Martian, Ricky said “He’s also the only person that Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to.” Ouch!
Ben allegedly had an affair with his nanny Christine Ouzounian in the summer of 2015, which reportedly lead to a brutal divorce from his wife of a decade, Jennifer Garner. The tragic event and the following lawsuit and rumors tore apart the parents of three children, and broke our hearts into about a million pieces. So, was it a funny joke, or was it a little bit mean? Both, honestly, but it was kinda unfair that Ben wasn’t actually there to respond. Instead, his best friend Matt had to just nervously laugh it off as he took the stage to preset an award. Awkwardddd.
