The founder of Distinctive Assets, Lash Farry, told the Metro that the comedian is being a ‘hypocrite’ for trolling the goody bags, as he has his own ‘substantial’ assets.
He reportedly told the publication: “Ricky Gervais is a talented comedian, so it’s no surprise that I find the hypocrisy of his ‘goody bag tweet’ hilarious.

“While we do not spend money buying any of the items in our gift bags (much like advertising, this is simply a promotional campaign for brands), the valuation is indeed significant… but not nearly as substantial as Ricky’s recent Netflix deal, the residuals he receives for The Office or his multi-million-dollar home.”
Using the comedian’s punchline, he went on to add: “So if you’re unemployed, take some comfort in the fact that even if you had a job, your salary probably wouldn’t be as much as Ricky Gervais makes for a single episode of After Life.”
Gervais received the response after tweeting: “If you’re unemployed for example, take some comfort in the fact that even if you had a job, your salary probably wouldn’t be as much as the goody bag all the actors have just been given’.”
He reportedly said: “I’ll get it out of the way. I have not got any Will Smith material. I trended when that happened and I was not even there.
“What has it got to do with me? People were going ‘What would have happened if Ricky Gervais had been doing it (hosting Oscars)?’
“Well, nothing as I would not have made a joke about his wife’s hair. I would have made a joke about her boyfriend.”
