English Comedian Ricky Gervais is under attack after making a series of jokes at the expense of transgender people in his new Netflix special.

“I love the new women. The new ones we’ve been seeing lately," Gervais joked only minutes into Ricky Gervais: SuperNature. "The ones with beards and c****. They’re as good as gold. I love them."

The 60-year-old comedian further discussed how women today may have facial hair and male genitalia but that people are still expected to call them women.


"'Oh, they want to use our toilets.' 'Why shouldn’t they use your toilets?' 'For ladies!' 'They are ladies — look at their pronouns!'" Gervais said.

The English comedian also poked fun at those who label women as TERFs, or "trans-exclusionary radical feminists," because they fear being sexually assaulted by someone who is a biological man in a women's restroom.

Gervais openly discussed the nature of society's "woke, progressive times" and touched on the notion of joke censorship.

A person should not say jokes are offensive, according to the comedian. "You go to say you found it offensive," he argued.

Gervais also voiced his discontent with "woke comedy" and the need to provide a safe space for the audience.

"I tried to watch a bit of it, and I decided I'd rather watch Louis C.K. masturbate. ... Can't mention him anymore. He's canceled," Gervais joked.

"In real life, of course, I support trans rights. I support all human rights, and trans rights are human rights. You know, live your best life. Use your preferred pronouns. Be the gender that you feel you are," he said. "But meet me halfway, ladies. Lose the c***. That's all I'm saying."

Liberal Twitter users did not take kindly to the special and began attacking the comedian.

"Ricky Gervais is like a d***, he shows up on your phone unwanted, acts big and hard talking about trans people but is way smaller in real life and can't handle getting bent by people calling him out on social media," Alejandra Caraballo, an instructor at Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic, tweeted.

"Normalize bullying Ricky Gervais," Caraballo added.

"Dear Ricky Gervais, your transphobic jokes aren't funny & if they are found to be amusing it's by bottom feeding scum. Congratulations, you appeal to the s***-stains of society," another user tweeted. "While you degrade us for a measly laugh remind yourself your 'jokes' are fueling our oppression."

An LGBT advocacy group also tweeted its opinion of Gervais.


"We watched the Ricky Gervais 'comedy' special on Netflix so you don’t have to," the group's tweet reads. "It's full of graphic, dangerous, anti-trans rants masquerading as jokes. He also spouts anti-gay rhetoric & spreads inaccurate information about HIV."
