Ricky Gervais calls Susan Boyle 'a mong'


However, unlike Frankie Boyle, Gervais has at least made an attempt to justify his comments....see "Week one hundred and nineteen - May 2010" - "I clearly explain that words change and that at no point am I referring to anyone with Down's Syndrome. Not only am I not referring to people with Down's Syndrome I also explain that I am not associating the word with its old derogatory meaning. I also do it as part of a routine about comedians taking responsibility for everything they say. I hope this is acceptable."
