Golden Globe host Ricky Gervais, who poked fun at teen pop sensation Justin Bieber about his paternity test, announced he was leaving L.A., tweeting, "Getting out of town now, Bieber fans aren't happy with me. That's some scary sh**. Bye LA. hello NY!"
A short time later, he posted another message, "OK. I've got enough protection against Bieber fans now," along with a photo of the actor holding a tiny Pomeranian.
Gervais was bombarded by paparazzi after he hosted the Globes on Sunday. Gervais insisted he won't return for another hosting gig next year.
The comedian was spotted in Hollywood after the big night, and when he was questioned about his celebrity-driven jabs, he replied, "I don't think anyone thought it was offensive, did they? I'm sure they were fine."
A paparazzo inquired about the Jodi Foster "Beaver" joke, and Ricky pointed out, "I didn't see her kids there."
