Ted Nugent had a lot of positive words for Ricky Gervais and the opening monologue he delivered during last night’s Golden Globes ceremony.

Nugent shared via Facebook, “Stop the presses! MayDay mayDay! Emergency all hands on deck! A phenomenal unprecedented ray of truth logic commonsense and honesty from Hollywood! 21 gun salute Ricky! Comedian Ricky Gervais is my new hero from last night’s Golden Globes! He said to the denial addicted fake world idiot actors in attendance: ‘If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech, right? You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything,” he said. “You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.’ Amen.”


At the time of publishing, video of Gervais’ monologue is the number one trending video on YouTube and has amassed a little over 2.5 million views.
