About Ricky Gervais

He was given the PETA Person of the Year Award in 2013 for his frequent posting of animal rights issues, his hatred for animal cruelty and his refusal to eat meat on social media. The association called the actor’s posts ‘witty and irreverent – yet relevant’ and had also caught the eye of The Humane Society International (HSI) as back in 2018, Gervais won The Cecil Award for ‘his global advocacy against trophy hunting’. The society mentions the star’s vociferously towards his opposition against trophy hunting, including leading an outcry against the killing of Cecil, the lion, who was killed by hunters in 2015.
