Ricky Gervais' new comedy Derek is criticised
Disablism. Handicaphobia. Smuggery. The English language has no good word for the prejudice that is comedian Ricky Gervais's stock-in-trade. It's akin to racism, or homophobia, but it isn't either of those.

Ricky isnt mocking people with any form of disability, if anything he is showing you the beauty of a good person no matter what their place in society is ... Watch the show and use your brain. One of the lines in the show that one of the elderly ladies says to Derek (Ricky) is that its better to be kind, then intelligent and good looking.
Rick has made a show that shows the beautiful side of a person that has had an unfortunate life which makes me (im guessing not you) want to change how I treat people. It was brilliant, i had a tear in my eye and a smile on my face for the while 30 minutes. Think before you take offence to something that isnt offensive at all in any way ... especailly considering it is a made up character.
Cheers to Ricky, it was lovely !!!
