Ricky Gervais His new film has a lot to say about the transgender community Netflix Special – and it’s not going well.
The Hereafter The star has been called a new special Supernatural Out with the streaming giant on Tuesday, and just hours after it first went down, people are already calling the comedian for apparently transphobic jokes.

As always when working with this new component, Gervais cuts LGBT-related issues from the very beginning. At one point, the comic says:
“I love new women. They’re great, aren’t they? The new ones we’ve been seeing lately. Those who have beards and c ** ks. They are as good as gold, I love them.
Noting the significant transgender bathroom-use controversy across the United States in recent times, Department The creator added his own comments on the matter by pantomimeming a conversation between the two opposing parties:
“And now the old men say, ‘Oh, they want to use our toilets.’ ‘Why wouldn’t they use your toilet?’ ‘For women!’ ‘They are women – look at their pronouns! Isn’t this the woman? ‘ ‘Well, his penis.’ ‘His penis, you king fanatic!’ ‘What if he rapes me?’ “What if he rapes you, you’re the king of Tariff?”
(A “TRF”, as many readers know, is an acronym for “Trans-Exclusive Radical Feminist” – a term used to refer to people who deny that trans women are real women.)
Later, Garvey mentions the comedian Kevin HartWho was booted from 2018 hosting Oscar Her past tweets were considered homophobic. Ricky said on stage, calling for the presumed use of the previous discarded culture and thinking about how it might play out in the future:
“You can’t predict what the future holds. For example, today you can say the worst thing, you get fired on Twitter, death threats, today you can say the worst thing, ‘Women don’t have sex, do they? Now, no one saw it coming. You won’t find a ten year old tweet saying ‘women don’t have sex’. Do you know why We didn’t think our king would do that! ”
After her long feud over transgender issues, Gervais Did Explain openly on stage that he has “support” for trans rights. Um, right? I didn’t see him coming.
Yet he threw in an intelligence at the end of his so-called supportive speech, although:
“Full disclosure: In real life, of course, I support trans rights. I support all human rights and trans rights are human rights. Live your best life. Use the pronouns of your choice. The gender you think you are. But halfway through meeting me, Woman. Lose c ** k. That’s all I’m saying. “
As Perezius readers can expect, Twitter Immediately took issue with Gervais’ new special.
Here are some enthusiastic tweets calling Ricky for Transphobia – including reports from viewers who have apparently already canceled their Netflix subscriptions:
“Within 5 minutes and he is joking about the assault and rape of trans women in the public bathroom. To him, we exist only as a punchline, a threat, something less than human. “
“If you’re a comedian and you support trans people, then it’s your job to speak out against Dave Chappell and the new Ricky Gervais special. At the moment, you cannot call yourself an ally unless you openly oppose it. That’s the minimum. “
“In honor of Ricky Garvey and his 2-4-1 runt and culture towards trans people, I am, in fact, canceling. Thanks @netflix #TransRightsAreHumanRights. “
“These guys think they’re being clever, but these jokes are lazy and unnecessary. What they’re telling us is that famous comedians missed attention during Covid’s time and are afraid of their attraction to transplant. “
Ricky Gervais specializes in 5 minutes and he has already mentioned that ‘old-fashioned women’ are ‘pregnant’ dinosaurs and respect the nickname of a rapist. Here we go! “
“Is it really hard to think of funny jokes?”
“It simply came to our notice then. Sorry “
“I see Ricky Garvey standing up for the IDGAF + community.”
As we mentioned (above), Garvise’s special is available on Netflix until Tuesday morning, for those who are interested in hearing for themselves.
Prior to Tuesday’s arrival, the streaming company had not teased any of its LGBT-related material in the broadcast. Instead, Netflix released a trailer earlier this month showing a clip about the supposed lack of funny female comedians (below):
The streaming company also shared a short clip of some of his comments on atheism on Monday night (below):
Apparently, however, none of these passages were as outrageous as Ricky’s comments about the transgender community.
