John Travolta -- Globes Were 'More Like a Roast'

1/23/2011 12:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Travolta -- who was the implied butt of a controversial joke from Ricky Gervais during the Golden Globes -- seemed to acknowledge the situation last night when he told our photog the event was "more like a roast" than an awards show.

John was all smiles leaving an event at the Hollywood Palladium last night as dozens of fans asked for autographs and congratulated him on his new baby. But he was stone cold silent when we asked him if he had any words for Gervais.

Sometimes saying nothing truly says it all.

So the tally so far is that only Scientologists and the Scientologists who patrol the internet feel offended by Gervais's comments.

It's understandable in that Scientology almost worships celebrities, or the endorsement value and consequent monetary income they represent. L Ron drew up a list of specific celebrities he wanted targeted for recruitment when he was alive.

They felt like it was a roast
When they were expecting a toast
Coast to coast
Some think they likes men the most!

---and Travolta is more like "a moron." Does he ever play any character besides "Vinnie Barbarino," really? Saturday Night Fever? Disco Vinnie. Urban Cowboy? Cow-patty Vinnie. Grease? Smokin' Vinnie. Pulp Fiction? Greasier, older Vinnie. Battlefield Earth? Well, Travolta was playing himself, there. When is that big melon of his going to explode? Can his head GET any BIGGER?

Oh, John. Everyone knows you troll the bathhouse scene. Get over it. Be angry with Carrie Fisher for outing you. Gervais just made fun of you. Or you can always chalk it up to gay bullying.

Award shows are boring! I don't watch them - but at least the jokes I saw from Ricky Gervais were funny and right on the money on Utube - actually sorry I missed this one -
If I was assured it would be a roast I would watch one - John get over yourself - if all the gossip wasn't about you and the "boys" you wouldn't be the butt of jokes now would you?

Wow, it's funny to me that some people here are saying that they've never heard the Travolta gay rumors... they've been widespread for a very long time.
