During his opening speech at the star-studded ceremony, Gervais made a joke about the Biebster's recent paternity claims, telling the audience: "Justin Bieber nearly had to take a paternity test. What a waste of a test that would have been,
"No, he's not the father. The only way that he could have impregnated a girl was if he borrowed one of Martha Stewart's old turkey basters."
His comments did not go down well with JB's Beliebers, with some angry fans lashing out at Gervais on Twitter.
One tweeted: "Ricky Gervais. I hate you. I love Justin Bieber!! do not mess with justin i kill you."
Another posted: "You dont know what your talking bout justin bieber, your a mean t**t, you dont know naffing."
Responding to their angry messages, Gervais tweeted that he was fleeing Los Angeles, stating: "Getting out of town now. Bieber fans aren’t happy with me. That’s some scary sh** Ha ha. Bye LA. hello NY!"
He then joked he had called for back up against the 17-year old's army of loyal followers, tweeting a snap of himself armed with a tiny fluffy puppy, accompanied with the post: "OK. I’ve got enough protection against Bieber fans now."
Despite hosting the Globes for three years, Gervais has since revealed that he will not be returning to the show next year, writing on his blog: "Thank f*** that’s over. I had a blast actually. It was by far my favourite of the three hosting stints,
"I’ve told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again though. It’s like a parachute jump.
"You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realise you didn’t die and it was quite an amazing thing to do."
