Comedian Ricky Gervais went after liberal activists for their hypocrisy on free speech as well as their support for 'milkshaking' attacks on conservative politicians and activists. As Fox News reports:

Controversial comedian Ricky Gervais took a shot at the recent trend of left-leaning activists throwing milkshakes at conservative politicians, pundits and protesters.

A growing viral trend in the U.S. and U.K. has seen political figures get milkshakes thrown on or at them by liberal activists who disagree with the target’s views. Brexit leader Nigel Farage was the target of a milkshaking incident in May. Antifa protesters clashed with Prod Boys in Portland, Ore. over the weekend when some of the demonstrators threw milkshakes said to be mixed with quick-drying cement, raw eggs and pepper spray.

Gervais, who is typically outspoken about political correctness on social media, took to Twitter to slam the idea that milkshaking exists under the bar of typical assault.

“It's interesting that the people who believe that throwing a milkshake in someone's face shouldn't be considered assault are often the same people who believe that 'saying things' should be,” the original “Office” creator wrote.

Liberals are in trouble if even Gervais, who has long been an outspoken critic of the President, is now blasting them for their hypocrisy.
