Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais and Mel Gibson held nothing back while taking jabs at each other at the award ceremony.

While Gervais, 54, ribbed Gibson, 60, for his drinking habits, the actor fired back at the host, saying his presence reminded him to get a colonoscopy. But the biggest shot came when Gervais said something so risqué that the show had to bleep out the moment.

So what did Gervais whisper to Gibson while on stage?

We have the answer – and it’s just as hilariously bleep-worthy as you would expect.

“What the f— does sugar t— even mean?” he said.

Gervais was referring to Gibson’s notorious 2006 run-in with the law when he was pulled over for drunk driving and went on a rather explicative rant in which called a female cop “sugar t—.”

After the joke, Gibson quickly shooed the host off the stage as the camera panned around the ballroom to show the crowd bursting into laughter and covering their faces out of shock.

Gervais kept the joke going by ending the award show with, “From myself and Mel Gibson, shalom.”

This certainly wasn’t the first time the bleep button was used throughout the night. In fact, it’s been working on overtime. Earlier in the night Amy Schumer had to be censored when she revealed what her Hollywood nickname really was. And let’s not forget Jonah Hill‘s dirty-mouthed bear.

As for Gervais and his hosting duties, the comedian went above and beyond on his promise to "offend."

During his opening monologue, Gervais took aim at Caitlyn Jenner, Ben Affleck and other A-listers.

“I’ve changed. Not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously – now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. What a year she’s had. She became a role model for trans people everywhere,” he said. “She didn’t do a lot for women drivers, but you can’t have everything,” he added, referencing Jenner’s involvement in a deadly car accident in February 2015.

He also stunned the crowd when introducing presenter Matt Damon and joking that The Martian actor is “the only person who Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to.”

Gervais also poked fun at Jennifer Lawrence and her much buzzed-about wage gap essay.

“Jennifer Lawrence made the news when she demanded equal pay for women in Hollywood and she received overwhelming support from people everywhere. There were marches on the street with nurses and factory workers. How the hell can a 25 year old live on $52 million?!”

The 73rd annual Golden Globes, hosted by Ricky Gervais, were presented live from Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, on NBC.
