People are very easily offended these days. In fact, one might say that there is a certain segment of the population that actually enjoys being offended and specifically go out of their way to feel that way, especially on social media.

Comedian and actor Ricky Gervais, who is no stranger to offending people, went viral on Sunday with a video he shared on social media of a stand-up bit he did about these very people who get offended by the things he says and does on Twitter.

“People take everything personally,” the 59-year-old After Life star begins his rant, which was actually filmed a couple of years ago. “They think the world revolves around them right? Particularly on Twitter.

“I’m not tweeting anywhere. I’m just tweeting, okay? I don’t know who’s following me. I’ve got 12 million followers [he has over 14 million now]. I don’t know who’s following. They can be following me without me knowing, right? Choose to read my tweet and then take that personally.

“That’s like going into a town square, seeing a big notice board, and there’s a notice guitar lessons and you go, ‘But I don’t f—-ing want guitar lessons! What’s this? Ah, there’s a number here. All right… Are you giving guitar lessons? Yeah, I don’t f—ing want any!’

“Fine. It’s not for you then. Just walk away, don’t worry about it.”

That video, posted by Ricky Gervais on Sunday, has now been watched almost 11 MILLION TIMES… on Twitter.
