Susan Boyle Takes On Ricky Gervais After He Comments On Her Looks!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsSad SadRicky GervaisSusan Boyle

Team SuBo FTW

That's right, gurl! Stand up!

Ricky Gervais really overstepped being funny and right into hurtful with his comments about Susan Boyle's looks.

Here's what he said about her:

"I don't think she'd be where she is today if it wasn't for the fact that she looked like such a f–king mong. There is no better word to describe Susan Boyle. When she first came on the telly, I went, 'Is that a mong?'"

If you don't know what a "mong" is, it's derogatory term often used when referring to people suffering from Down Syndrome.

So uncalled for — offensive in every way, and without humor.

Here's what Susan had to say about it:

"I can take whatever Ricky says, because I'll tell you something. He's the one with the problem, not me. Ricky's a talented man, but he's wasted himself with those comments."


We can laugh with the rest of them when it's all in good fun and for the sake of humor — but this is just plain mean!

She continued:

"I've had a lot of insults. Do you know what I do? I ignore them. I just get on with my life. Those who have something to say usually have nothing to do."

Such a good outlook!

So, did Ricky apologize? Nope! Here's his terrible explanation:

"The meaning of words change over time, 'gay' for example. The modern use of the word 'mong' means dopey and ignorant, it's in slang and urban dictionaries."

That's no excuse. Especially to use the word "gay" as an example!

We're so ashamed of you, Ricky!

Susan! Chin up — we love you!

    I wonder if that's how Lindsay Lohan feels when you comment on how she looks. You have a WHOLE website dedicated towards judging peoples looks. It was uncalled for, Ricky Gervais' comments, and Susan Boyle handled it really well, better than you did it seems. He's a comedian, it's what he does. Also, he's absolutely correct about 'gay'. It used to mean happy, that's what he meant. Not everyone is homophobic, fucking hell.

    he was pulled up on using that word before so he knows people dont like it…

    suzy is suzy she has the voice of a angel and stand for all the little people at home on the couch with big dreams …

    hes pretty ugly and weird looking himself…and he looks like he stinks

  3. 3

    He's absolutely wrong about the word "mong" - the meaning hasn't changed over time and it remains a derogatory word.

    He's absolutely right though about the word "gay", as it used to mean "happy, merry, lively mood". Today, it refers to sexual orientation and it isn't a "slur" to use the word gay, as many homosexuals identify themselves using that term.

    Lighten up Perez - it's as though anytime mentions the word "gay", even in a positive way, you go on the attack.

    well, the only thing comedians do these days is trash people. it's not comedy anymore. you watch that, laugh, and feel guilty for giving up to such bad taste jokes. shame. no wonder i haven't even watched tv for the last 3 years… and counting… btw, Perez, you're not behind Rick Gervais, in fact, you should be his teacher…

  5. 5

    love Gervais….and besides: he´es 100% right.

  6. 6

    STFU fatboy… Ricky Gervais has it spot on. Tons of peeps said the same thing about subo! In fact, I thought she was a product of alzheimers so Gervais isnt that far off… and he's absolutely right!! If Subo was half decent looking no one would give a fuck 3 yrs ago. No one gives a fuck now. Her record sales are no longer hot. People dont give a rats ass about her anymore. Hell, the grammys and brit awards dont give a rats ass. Just cause you can do karoake versions of other original artists' work doesnt mean you're artistic in the least. No wonder neither awards show has given her anything. Point blank, period!!!

  7. 7

    You built your name and site around insulting people. Your name is associated with hatred. Your empty comments now mean nothing, your reputation is cemented. Your next story will probably bash Lindsay Lohan again. There is nothing truthful in anything you say.

  8. 8

    Just another way to publicize Ricky for being shocking and Susan for not looking like a typical hollywood starlet. He shouldn't call her a 'mong' but at this point Ricky has become a cliche of himself so this doesn't phase me. Next he'll comment on Madonna being old or Kim Kardashian being greedy, basically point out the obvious shit well already knew but using a slur to emphasize how provocative he can be for publicity.

  9. 9

    Boyle is not only ugly, but too far over the crazy line. She's not had a date in so long for very good reason. No one denies that she can sing, but her fug face is impossible to ignore.
    Re: xcalibur – Yep. Spot on.
    Re: Lady Who? – Absolutely. Perez has his ass lickers, but most of the comments posted on his site are negative toward him, and he's too stupid, greedy, desperate for attention, and shameless to do us all a favor and stop breathing forever.

  10. 10

    Obviously you have never listened to Ricky's radio shows, podcasts or watched his show. He always uses that word and he always uses it as a slang word. I think it is very hypocritical of you to be mad at someone about making fun of someone else. Until the issue affected you, you didn't care. You said terrible things about people and hid behind a computer. You jump on bandwagons constantly for causes. One minute you could give a f*** less and then the next you are making videos about issues. Doing that doesn't make you a good person, it just shows how much you need and seek approval from people. You still throw backhanded statements at people. I go to another blog and all he does is make fun of people, but at least he is honest and hasn't "changed" because it looks good.

    I'M very tired of all this Political Correctness BS
    When Susan first appeared to us, she did look like she had stumpled her way into the studio, after having fallen off the turnip truck, what she had done since than is great, the woman has picked up style and sohiptication

  12. 12

    What an asshole! He's not funny in the least bit anyway, granted British humour is stale as hell, but he still sucks.

  13. 13

    Ricky Gervais can't afford to make fun of anyone's looks. Hasn't he ever looked in the mirror? He's pathetic. I honestly don't see why anyone would be offended by his ignorant/insensitive comments. Just look at him! He's the joke and the punchline.

  14. 14

    that's too bad. i like that guy too. TO call someone a name that means they have down syndrom is not only hurtful but suggesting there is somethign wrong about soeone who HAS down syndrom eand for some reason deserves abuse despite having to go through some of the worst times that we will never know. Very uncool and unfair. She has had a long painful life and he has no right to try to rain on her little parade of good fortune. She deserves accolades not sht

  15. 15

    Although he shouldn't have said being a public figure and all, he's right about the meaning of the word. Here in England mong is just a word for a stupid person. Like, if one of my friends did something really dumb I'd be like "oh my god you're such a mong". It's really not that offensive anymore.

  16. 16

    yeahboii, I don't think thats what he meant he means gay now means stupid or lame. While it might be said casually with friends doesn't make it any more right. No one uses it to mean happy they use it to put something down and that's exactly the problem people have with it. I suppose people will understand when haha look at that white guy means someone who looks disgusting and ugly and like they are mentally challenged and used in every day language.

    xcaliber.. and yet whitney only sang kaeroke and other people
    s songs and had no talent but her voice and people revered her. FAIL

    Oh so he was saying she looks dopey and ignorant? RIIIIIIIIIGHT

  19. 19

    Nice to see he consistantly takes the low road

  20. 20

    Re: YeahBoiii – He was saying that the word Mong now has a new meaning just like the word gay does. However, according to the urban dictionary, the new meaning of the word is as bad as the meaning we all know, and what's worse is that he's lying and we all know what he meant, he's just not man enough to own up to it. In fact he's not a man at all. Men don't treat women, especially a woman who does have a disability and is simply trying to have a career, like that.

  21. 21

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – The term isn't that offensive anymore? Well that's all the proof that I need that you're a mong.

  22. 22

    i don't agree with what he said but using the example of the word gay is a great example because gay used to mean happy and now it means homosexual. according to you no one can even say the word gay without it being offensive.

  23. 23

    He's a comedian…these people fire off stuff and it either sinks or swims. I'm amazed when people freak when a says something dumb/stupid/ignorant.
    Technically I think she is probably worth more than him so she can ease her sorrows by going shopping or something…

  24. 24

    Wow, what an asshole! doesn't surprise me, though - he likes being controversial to get attention. this is really BAD attention, though - making fun of her and making fun of people with Downs is really just ignorant and low. Grow up, idiot - if this is what you have to do to make people "laugh" then you've lost your touch - you're not funny anymore.

  25. @v@ says – reply to this


    He's not exactly the anti-mong.

  26. 26

    I takes a lot of nerve for someone who looks like an unwashed, scruffy,vampire, to make fun of a person's looks!

  27. 27

    He's such an insesitive jerk…But I have to say she DOES look like someone suffering from the Down Syndrome!

  28. 28

    Don't get me wrong, I love this website. But I think you have it totally wrong on this one Perez. Your website is based on calling people hot-messes and sometimes insulting people. So don't be so hypocritical.
    British humour and slang is different from American, and I am not in any way homophobic, but in Britain gay also means to us, Silly or Stupid. Not everyone is a homphobe! We use words differently to you, so dont you dare get up on your high horse and go on about how we shouldnt say gay. Because I'm sure somewhere along the lines it was someones choice to change the meaning of the word Gay from happy and lively to homosexual.

  29. 29

    I like both people they are both talented but seriously Gervais should talk really. While he not look like a mong he does at times look like a bloated middleaged queer. So see it all works out!

  30. 30

    Right on, Perez, I am team SuBo all the way. Ricky Gervais is just plain MEAN. He did mean it as a Drown Syndrome person. I wish he could apologize to Susan. No wonder so many people in school have committed suicide, bullies are every where. Celebrities have to be set an example to the public. Kids would think it is ok to make fun of others. Ricky Gervais is a horrible man, how could he made fun of people with disabilities.

    Ricky Gervais is just plain mean - make fun of SuBo's look. We all know she's been bullied all her life. She had suffered brain damage. I love how she handled Ricky's insult. I think Susan is so lovely and cute.

  33. @v@ says – reply to this


    Gervais seems to be mixing up gifted singers with Victoria Secret models. Values, buddy.

  34. 34

    Yes, you are right, Perez. We love Subo. Ricky Gervasis can go s**K his own d**k. He is a Bully
