Comedian Ricky Gervais took shots at Hollywood on Sunday with jokes that he said he would have used if he had been chosen to host the Academy Awards.

Gervais dropped the lines on Twitter in response to being asked, “[If] you were hosting the Oscars tonight, what’s your first best joke?”

Gervais responded, “I can’t wait to hear all your inspirational speeches about equality, and it’s great that the 3 hours you’re here tonight is the only time your badly paid migrant house staff will get some time off to sleep this week.”

Several minutes later, Gervais added, “It’s great to see such diversity in the room tonight. Rich sex pests of all shapes and sizes.”
