He also thanks Twitterverse, bloggers and journalists for defending him.


Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais has taken to his blog again to address the controversy following his awards show hosting gig that offended pretty much all of Hollywood.
“Thanks to the twitterverse, the blogosphere, all the journos and the coolest stars for coming to my rescue,” he blogged. “It was heartwarming to realise [sic] I wasn't losing my mind. Some reactions nearly had me believing I'd gone too far too. Nearly. 
“Can't wait for the people who thought it was over the top to see my stand-up shows,” he went on, adding that they’ll “s--t” themselves once they see what they say.
Before signing off, he encouraged people to watch his HBO and Science channel shows.
“A genuine thanks by the way for all your support," he then added.
