But there were also stars that enjoyed his humorous speech and they shared their impressions on Twitter.

Al Pacino: He’s a comic, so he’s going to go for it. He’s letting it go. You don’t know what [he’s] going to say!

Larry King: The folks who put him on the Globes have no right to complain about Ricky Gervais. He does what he does. Why should it surprise them? You agree?

Christian Bale: Thank God for comedians. I’m hoping he’s going to keep going further.

Elizabeth Banks: I thought RG was hilarious. Actors can take it. We have thick skins.

Jon Stewart: [I’m] offended that a comedian could be that funny at an awards show.

Damon Lindelof: In case you forgot what made David Brent so brilliant, it’s that he made us feel unsafe, uncomfortable and unable to look away. BRAVORICKY.

Andrew Garfield: He’s been terribly nasty and horribly rude and I think he’s genius.
