Three months later and Ricky Gervais is still getting heat for his controversial turn as emcee at this year's Golden Globes. But not the kind you'd expect.
"Here's what you have to apologize about for the Golden Globes," Jon Stewart told his fellow comic when he stopped by The Daily Show on Thursday. "Making people like me, who've also hosted these events, feel inadequate by being that funny. By going out there and being hilarious and doing a great job, it actually hurt my self-esteem and I think you do owe me an apology."
"This is what I think I should apologize for about the Golden Globes: F--k all!" replied Gervais with a laugh. "If they ever came to my standup, their heads would explode."
And that would hurt anyone's self-esteem.
