Ricky Gervais. As you will have heard two young people were shot dead yesterday at a shopping plaza in America. They were journalists conducting an interview at the Bridgewater Plaza in Virginia.
WDBJ7 news station reporter Alison Parker, who was just 24, and her cameraman Adam Ward, 27 were both killed when ‘Bryce Williams’ – a disgruntled fellow employee of the station turned up at the interview and shot them both stone dead. He later died after turning his gun on himself.
I only need look at my status updates to know that pretty much everyone in the media now has an infallible diagnostic as to why these murders took place. Journalists across the world have penned 1,000 word essays about why Williams did what he did. They’ve all gleaned their information from the scant evidence available, social media and their own levels of genius.
Some have suggested that it was a long build up of dissociative psychosis, others that Williams felt he had been working in a racist monoculture for far too long. A couple or three whackjobs have suggested that he did these terrible deeds because his parents originally named him Vester Lee Flanagan the second.
So there’s your statistical correlation right there but the cold hard truth is simple. Another lunatic jumped out of his gimp closet, bought a gun and then shot two innocent people with it. Really, it’s that simple.
Last night because none of the tabloid newspapers were focused on what type of tampon Britney Spears is currently using comedian Ricky Gervais had nothing to read. So he took to his Twitter and spoke out against America’s crazy-assed gun laws, his hatred of bombs
and dental floss.
Here’s what he had to say, “Shocked by the insanity of the Virginia shooting. My thoughts are with the loved ones and I hope we will find a solution to the madness that is guns.”
Many of Ricky’s 10m followers saw that and tweeted ‘Me too!’
However not all agreed. Some dopey twat tweeted ‘guns aren’t the problem. Everyone who isn’t a killer should be allowed to have one.’
Ricky responded. “Hahaha. Perfect.‘Guns don’t kill people. People do’ …. yeah, people with fucking guns! ”
Then Ricky followed it up with this…
So there you have it. The American Gun lobby in action. They’ll probably now start a petition to stop Ricky Gervais entering the United States. They’ll nail it to a tree like a wanted poster for the black Robin Hood.
I know, they’ve got guns, so they’re probably going to win this little contest.
