Ricky Gervais risks feud with Becks as he backs jibe saying ‘the f***ing Beckhams, I’m done with them now’ – The Sun
RICKY Gervais has risked an A-list stand-off with the Beckhams after backing criticism of millionaire Victoria furloughing 30 staff.
The comedian, 58, “liked” a damning remark about David and his fashion designer wife, who have an estimated worth of £335million.
In a since-deleted post, a fan called Tony wrote on social media: “The f***ing Beckhams, sorry I’m done with them now. Shame on them.”
It linked to a story about Victoria’s fashion brand asking the Government to pay 30 of its workers.
Gervais, whose Netflix hit After Life returns on Friday, is well known for his vicious jibes at celebrities while hosting awards shows.
Some suggest that government assistance to pay 80 per cent of a worker’s wage should not be available to super-rich business owners.
But Victoria’s firm has faced a string of financial pressures, with David and other investors understood to have stepped in previously.
Victoria’s spokesman said: “Having carefully assessed all our options, we made the decision to furlough a proportion of staff on an enhanced package.”
