(Inspired by this and the various responses to it.)

Things Ricky Gervais has done:

-Called a disabled woman a ‘freak’ (and more) to her face

-Written many, many jokes and shows where the punchline is ‘disabled people are fucking hilarious’ (seriously, it’s basically his thing)

-Enthusiastically used the word ‘mong’ on Twitter as an insult; would not stop

-Been generally an arrogant, cruel, ableist douchefuck

Things Ricky Gervais has not done:

-Contributed anything at all to actual science

the end.
