Christian Bale Thanks Satan in Golden Globes Acceptance Speech

This image released by NBC shows Christian Bale accepting the award for best actor in motion picture musical or comedy for his role in “Vice” during the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, Jan. 6, 2019, in Beverly Hills, Calif. (Paul Drinkwater/NBC via AP)

He’s no doubt an A-Lister—Christian Bale won a Golden Globe on Sunday night for his role as Dick Cheney in Vice and he had quite an interesting muse for his role as the VP.

“Thank you Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role…”

…he said, per Business Insider.

Reaction on Twitter ranged from shocked memes to impressed memes to Liz Cheney tweeting an article about Bale’s 2008 arrest for assault.

Yes, as the Raw Story puts it, conservatives “lost their minds” over Bale’s joke; the outlet rounds up outraged tweets from the right.

Bale’s acceptance speech was also making headlines due to his accent; some people simply forgot he’s Welsh, but even people who knew and remembered that were confused by how he sounded.

    The movie “Vice” was outstanding, and one I will see time and again. Bale deserves this award.

    He also said: “Whose next, Mitch McConnell?”

    If that ever happened, the make up department would have to perform a miracle akin to feeding the 5,000. McConnell is not a normal looking man.

    Satan is our behind the scenes Republican Party Chairman so from my standpoint as a staunch republican it’s about time Satan was paid his proper due.
