Gervais: Why David Brent uses the 'N word' in new film

Ricky Gervais has explained this reason for his character David Brent's use of the 'N word' in new film David Brent: Life on the Road.

The actor and comedian said Brent was not racist, but was "accidently offensive because he wants to please everyone”.

Gervais spoke to 5 live's Sam Walker along with his co-star Doc Brown who said he “didn’t feel uncomfortable” but understood use of the word was "always going to rub someone up the wrong way”.
