Mel Gibson & Ricky Gervais at Golden Globes 2016 - Full Video

Mel Gibson and Ricky Gervais shared possibly one of the most awkward moments at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards and you can watch the full video right here.

After the host introduced Mel to the stage, the actor made a joke at Ricky‘s expense, which prompted him to come back on stage.

Ricky then whispered something into Mel‘s ear, but it got bleeped on the live show. “What the f— does sugar—s mean?” he said.

If you’re wondering what he is referring to, when Mel was being arrested for a DUI in 2006, he said to a female police officer, “what do you think you’re looking at, sugar t–s?”

What Did Ricky Gervais Say to Mel Gibson at Golden Globes 2016? See Here!

Ricky Gervais had the job of introducing presenter Mel Gibson to the stage at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 10) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

“I want to say something nice about Mel before he comes out. Here we go. I’d rather have a drink with him at his hotel room tonight than with Bill Cosby,” he said before bringing him to the stage.

When Mel came out, he said, “I love seeing Ricky once every three years because it reminds me to get a colonoscopy.

Ricky then came back on stage and said, “Can I ask you a question? I think we all want to ask you this.” He then whispered in Mel‘s ear, but what he said was censored.

Los Angeles Times reporter Amy Kaufman was in the crowd and she tweeted that what Ricky said was, “What the f–k does sugart–s even mean?”

Ricky Gervais & Partner Jane Fallon Step Out Before the Globes!

Ricky Gervais and his longtime partner Jane Fallon step out for a morning walk on Thursday (January 7) in Los Angeles.

The 54-year-old British comedian will be returning as the host of the Golden Globes for the fourth time this Sunday night and he opened up about the gig on The Today Show.

“You do have to address things,” Ricky said. “But I’m never trying to undermine the moral fabric of America. I’d rather people laugh than gasp. But if they gasp that’s good, too.”

“I don’t want this nauseating, backslapping ‘aren’t we all great’ … yeah, we know we’re all great. It’s entertainment, it’s fairyland, it’s TV, this isn’t real, we’re … not saving lives,” he added.
