Ricky Gervais To Leave Fortune To Animal Charities
Comedian Ricky Gervais has announced that when he finally departs this planet, it’s animals that will be receiving his help and not humans.
Gervais made the comments while calling a radio station to win £20,000 for his favorite animal charities as part of their ‘Who’s Calling Christian’ contest. The competition encourages listeners to get a celebrity to ring in for the chance to win £10,000 for themselves and the star’s favorite charity. If the winning star rings in of their own accord, they get the whole £20,000 to be donated to a charity of their choice.
“I don’t want to leave my money to people,” he said. “People should work hard. I’ve worked hard for my money. At the moment I’m sat in the garden where I’ve buried it and I’ve got a gun.”
The 48-year-old also said that if he were Prime Minister, he would work to stop animal cruelty. “Particularly those inbred people who still go hunting when they are not meant to, I’d like to smack them in the mouth,” he added.
