The comedian took to social media to mock woke influencers

Ricky Gervais took to social media this week to mock woke influencers in a hilariously Gervais fashion.

The 62-year-old shared some clips on his X account impersonating social media stars who wade into politics.

In black and white clips where Gervais appears to be in a bath, he pokes fun at influencers who try to promote their own political views onto their audiences.

In one clip posted on Sunday, he stated: "Hi guys, Ricky G here, wellness and beauty influencer.

"As a celebrity, I know all about stuff, like science and politics. So trust me when I tell you who you should vote for.

"If you don't vote the right way, it's like a hate crime, it makes me sad and angry, and I'll leave the country - you don't want that."

Another clip posted on Tuesday also left X followers in hysterics as he remarked: "Hi guys, Ricky G here, wellness and beauty influencer.

"Also, poet, that way if I don't make any money from it, I can say it's because I'm a true artist."

Reading a "poem," he stated: "Be kind... Don't dehumanise by punching down like a fascist clown.

"Be more like me, sad but free from the rest and success."
