Billy Porter Slams Ricky Gervais for ‘No Preaching’ Note at Golden Globes

Published

on

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Ricky Gervais wants Hollywood to shut up and just sing or act … and to stay the hell out of politics … but Billy Porter ‘s vowing to speak out whenever and wherever he wants.

We got the “Pose” star at LAX — where he was flying out of town after Sunday’s Golden Globes awards — and asked what he made of the host jokingly telling the stars to lay off politics while onstage … ’cause they’re not really educated on the issues.

ICYMI … Ricky pretty much said nobody really gives a crap what actors and singers have to say on social or political issues, so they should avoid them during acceptance speeches.

Funny enough, several winners did NOT take the note.

Winners dove into abortion, climate change, and looming Iran conflict — all of which Billy says was totally appropriate.

He told us actors and other artists aren’t just airheads parroting what they hear in the news … a lot of them are actually educated people, and deserve to add their voices to the national conversation.

You gotta see how Billy flexed on us to prove his point about actors’ intelligence. He added … people like Gervais can’t stop impassioned celebs from using their platforms.

Even IF Ricky was only joking, Billy definitely ain’t isn’t laughing.

WEST HOLLYWOOD (TMZ) — Heather Elizabeth Parkhurst — an actress who’s appeared in “Alpha Dog” and “Beverly Hills Cop III” — damn near got her arm torn off when her pit bulls turned on each other, mauling her in the process.

Heather’s fiance, Mark Nason, tells TMZ … the scary incident went down Friday night at their West Hollywood home. We’re told Heather was petting their 7-month-old pit, Baby, when their other pit bull, 8-year-old Buddha, suddenly appeared to get jealous and growled.

And, that’s when Baby and Buddah lunged at each other but Heather’s right hand and arm got caught in the middle of the violent melee.

The attack left Heather — who’s also acted on TV shows like “NYPD Blue” and “Married with Children” — a bloody mess. She was rushed to the hospital to treat gruesome injuries, including crushed bones in her hand, torn ligaments and other deep cuts throughout her arm.

We’re told doctors inserted pins and stitched up her arm but she remains hospitalized.

Mark tells us Heather will now require nearly a year of therapy to recover. As for the dogs, Mark says they have every intention to keep Buddha and Baby because they’re huge pit bull advocates.
