Comedian Ricky Gervais got canceled by a few of his audience after his arrogant trans joke.
Ricky Gervais tweeted on Twitter that his new show got released and he thanked his audience for making it a hit as Netflix ordered his other show already. He further thanks to the animal charities for making it happen.
However, the strong cancel culture nowadays might backfire on him. His transphobic joke is not landing well among the public. Here is what he actually said.
Ricky Gervais Cancelled - Arrogant Trans Jokes Got Fans Furious
Ricky Gervais' new Netflix show 'SuperNature' was released today and people have different things to say about it. If you remember he recently talked about wanting to get canceled on his stand-up show during the promotional sessions. It seems like the man said it too soon.
He has come with a bang full of transphobic comments and it is not quite going well with the audience. The criticism it has been getting is definitely making him regret what he wished for.
Rick talks about how he doesn't like the women, not all women but old-fashioned ones, one with wombs. He further goes on to say the news ones are gold, who have bread and cocks. This is obviously all in humor but this has already started going into controversy.
The After Life writer also makes fun of terms like TERF, or Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist, which is a term used to describe persons who disagree with the idea that trans women are women.
In the end, he defends himself by saying that he totally supports Trans people in real life-giving full disclosure. He has been getting equal support along with hate and criticism for the show. This in general has become a win-win situation for the comedian.
Ricky Gervais And Nish Kumar's Relationship
Gervais has been chastised for relying too much on cheap trans jokes, such as when he insulted and deadnamed Caitlyn Jenner at the 2016 Golden Globes.
He went on to devote a 15-minute portion of his 2018 Netflix show Humanity to the subject, with the punchline that he was now "self-identifying as a chimpanzee," an old joke used by right-wing comedians for the past decade.

Nish Kumar then stepped in to bash him for the kind of humor he chose for his stand-up. Audio got leaked where Kumar can be heard abusing Gervais. He lambasted Gervais' routine as a "f**king piece of s**t" before launching into the war cry: "F**k Ricky Gervais, f**k Ricky Gervais!"
