A high profile dwarf has defended Ricky Gervais against accusations of bigotry, before being pushed over and laughed at by Gervais himself.
“Ricky likes to play around with traditional notions of prejudice”, said Warwick Davis, star of Gervais’ latest show. “He’s essentially holding a mirror up to society and saying “look at how dreadful you are. It’s all very clever.”
Mr Gervais was unavailable for comment this morning, but was spotted in his front garden, gurning and laughing at a disabled journalist.
When asked if he felt comfortable being asked to fall out of a car because of his diminutive stature, Mr Davis said “I like to see it as more of an ‘ironic gesture’ than a fall. I know that Ricky would never ask me to do anything humiliating, we’re good friends.”
After a deluge of complaints, the BBC have released the following statement “Ricky has assured us that the humour is deeply postmodern. We have total faith in him.”
The corporation has already committed to filming a pilot for Gervais’ latest script Once you go black which is set to feature Richard Blackwood, and a gun.
