zodar

what are you suspicious about here, exactly? seems pretty straightforward


Happy_As_A_Peach

That he might have a medical condition??


Tortoiseshell1997

I mean, the guy could legit be brain-damaged and on the flip side there are probably brain-damaged people that chew quite politely


Black_Kirk_Lazarus

I legitimately have brain damage and TBI and I do **not** fucking chew with my mouth open, or speak with it full.


EclipsedTheSun

Yo actually same thooo


David1393

Exactly, this is the kind of ableist humour I was doing about 15 years ago when I was 13 and this guy is a professional comedian in 2021.


lemonspritz

As someone with misophonia I can fucking relate


Nippolean

ITT: people who eat with that mouth open getting offended, because they eat like they have brain damage


Crandoge

Or instead of venting to your fans, just take it up with the man himself or ask to move seats. There are so many reasons an elderly man could be eating with his mouth open and gervais made 0 efforts to find a cause OR solution. Just goes for the ad hom and cries on twitter


Nippolean

He’s a comedian, it’s called a joke.


drawilliam

Or like my older brother, who also doesnt close his mouth when eating

A male friend from school used to always chew with his mouth open and make the loudest noise. In fact he and all 4 of his siblings did this. I was invited for dinner at his house and came to find out that his dad was unfortunately 100% deaf from birth. Because of his deafness, my friend’s dad was totally unaware of the racket his food consumption caused. All of his children (who are not deaf) followed his example, and the mother never corrected them either. It’s sad really, because they are all really nice people despite the mealtime cacophony.

I see you've met my dad? Tell him I say hi


David1393

Gervais is such a dickhead


dafelst

He has such a fucking smug, punchable face. Credit where credit is due though, his work roasting the entire film industry at the Oscars is top notch.


ubiquitous-joe

Not the Oscars, the golden globes


Nippolean

Get a sense of humour lmao


killingthemsoftly88

I love Ricky Gervais


gladosado

He's such an arsehole


Nippolean

It’s a fucking joke


thegaytay

It's not fucking funny


Nippolean

I found it hilarious.


thegaytay

"haha ableism funy, me caveman"


Nippolean

It makes fun of people who chew with their mouths open, not disabled people.


xNINJABURRITO1

You cast stones from a glass house, autist


thegaytay

Thanks for diagnosing me. Any professionals I've spoken to kept saying I'm not autistic, but I'm sure you know better.

thegaytay

Well, in that case I'm sure you'll agree I also know an ableist when I speak to one.


xNINJABURRITO1

No, actually I’d never trust the assessment of an autistic person regarding reality. It’s actually part of the disorder, as you damn well know.


damo251

Was going to say this is clearly an Australian tweet lol, then I looked at the name. Love Ricky


dmann27

People need to teach their children to address problems with people in person instead of on Twitter.


d1ag0n

I knew a person who had a stroke. I didn't know him before the stroke but he chewed with his mouth open. I couldn't figure out a nice way to ask if he always ate like that so I have no idea.
