Ricky Gervais Controversy: The most recent stand-up special that Ricky Gervais has released on Netflix has jokes about transgender people. One of the reviewers remarked that he “humiliated” the group, while another believed that it was “excellent job,” but that it simply made others who didn’t understand the humor angry.
The After Life actor, who was born in Reading and is now based in Los Angeles, makes fun of “old-fashioned females with wombs” in his program SuperNature. ” Dinosaurs! Yes, the new ladies have won my heart completely. The most recent ones? C**ks with beards. It is pure gold. They are wonderful.
“Now we have the more traditional ladies saying things like, ‘Oh, they want to use our toilets.’ Why shouldn’t they?'” Just the ladies here. When you consider their pronouns, who among them is not a lady? Penis. Bigot, her penis. What if I end up getting raped? What are you going to do if she rapes you, you TERF whore?
Those who disagree that trans women should be recognized as women are sometimes referred to as TERFs (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists). The views made by Gervais have been met with condemnation on the internet. A Twitter user who identifies as trans said, “Ricky Gervais’s new stand-up show is out on Netflix today.” After five minutes, he’s already cracking jokes about trans women committing rapes in public restrooms. To him, we are both a joke and a threat, and we don’t even come close to being human.
He enjoys the “you can’t say that anymore” aspect of taboo humor, and it shows in both The Office and his stand-up performances. In the beginning of the story, he remarks, “That was irony.” “We’ll have to include that in the show.” It doesn’t matter if we’re making jokes about sexual assault, paedophilia, handicaps, obesity, or anything else; we’re supposed to inject irony into them so that others may laugh at them.

People who identify as transgender are frequently the focus of the most lengthy riffs. In the last moments of the program, he clarifies his position by stating, “Full transparency, I support trans rights.” When the punchline, which is a crude joke about gender affirmation surgery, is delivered, there is a scream of laughing and applause from the crowd. However, this reaction is nothing compared to the laughter and applause that follows the punchline.
Piers Morgan lauded the Netflix original series SuperNature in a tweet by writing that it was “absolutely ludicrous, fantastically provocative, hilariously funny, and already enraging all the proper people like Nish Kumar who are too woke, humorless, and dumb to comprehend the comedy.” “Outstanding!”
The comment that Morgan made about Kumar makes a reference to Gervais’ 2018 tour. Regarding Gervais’s remarks about transgender people, Kumar stated, “He’s not edgy or exciting.” It doesn’t make him an interesting or cutting-edge comedian at all. He’s just like every other affluent white male comedian who becomes too successful, eventually runs out of ideas, and then sh*ts on people of color. He’s a joke.
