Ricky Gervais' Fat Blast

Ricky Gervais believes "fat people" are like heroin addicts.

The British comic has no sympathy for overweight people because it is their "own fault" they've put on weight and they need to be weaned off calorific treats like "smack heads" - a slang term used for those addicted to the deadly drug - should be kept away from narcotics.

Discussing whether or not he hates overweight people, he said: "Well, it's their fault they're fat. They ate too much. Those are the rules. I got fat because I ate too much. I knew why I was getting fat. I didn't think I had a tumour up my backside. I thought it was because I ate cheese and pizza every f***ing night. I knew what I was doing. So there's no point going round feeling sorry for them. It wasn't a trick.

"It's like dealing with smack heads. We've got to stop them."

Although Ricky - who lost a lot of weight last year - understands how difficult it can be to shift excess pounds, he still finds it funny to include jokes about fat people in his comedy sketches.

He added to Britain's GQ magazine: "I do a new routine where I say, 'I don't want to make any fat people feel uncomfortable, so next time, buy two seats.' Are you asking me if I hate fat people? Do I think they eat too much? They eat too much if they want to be thin. If they want to stay fat, they're eating just the right amount."
