Ricky Gervais praised for mocking Netflix ‘SuperNature’ special cancel culture


Ricky Gervais has been praised for his mocking new Netflix special “SuperNature” cancel culture with jokes about trans people, Hitler and AIDS.

The comedian, 60, begins the series by describing the comedy to viewers as “mostly a talking guy”, before deliberately not remembering “humorous female comedians”.

And just minutes into his opening monologue, Gervais yawns to the group, talking about “those old-fashioned ladies, you already know, with wombs.”

The new special has won support from viewers for tackling controversial issues such as the trans debate, racism, identity politics and Hitler – days after Netflix was accused of being “contaminated by the waking thoughts virus” by Elon Musk.

Discussing Kevin Hart’s determination to step down from web hosting the Oscars in 2018 after historic homophobic tweets emerged, Gervais tells his viewers, “You can’t predict what might be offensive sooner or later.” You don’t know who the dominant crowd might be.

“Like the worst thing you can say right now, getting canceled on Twitter, death threats, the worst thing you can say right now is ‘Women don’t have penises’ , is not it ?

‘Now nobody noticed that coming. You won’t find a decade old tweet saying “Women don’t have penises”. You know why? We didn’t think we needed it!

And in another joke at the end of the show in which he addresses self-identity, Gervais says he supports trans rights – a comment met with cheers from several viewers.

It provides: “Full disclosure. In real life, after all, I support trans rights. I support all human rights and trans rights are human rights.

‘Live your best life, use your most beloved pronouns, be the kind you really feel you are. But meet me halfway girls, lose the c** okay, that’s all I’m sayin’.

The comedian, 60, begins the series by describing the comedy to viewers as “mostly a talking guy”, before deliberately not calling out “humorous female comedians”.

Jimmy Carr Is Criticized For Holocaust Joke In Netflix Comedy Special His Dark Material

Jimmy, 49, drew criticism in February over a clip from his Netflix special His Dark Material, which saw him joke that the ‘hundreds of gypsies killed by the Nazis’ was an ‘optimistic’ impact of the Holocaust.

In a widely shared clip from his Netflix show, Jimmy joked about the horror of the Holocaust and “six million Jewish lives lost.”

As a punchline, he then made a disparaging comment about the deaths of hundreds of gypsies at the hands of the Nazis.

“But they in no way refer to the hundreds of gypsies who were killed by the Nazis. Nobody ever wants to talk about that, because nobody ever wants to talk about the positives,’ Carr joked to a laughing audience.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman called the joke “unacceptable”, while Health Secretary Sajid Javid urged people to boycott the hour-long special.

Jewish comedian David Baddiel, 57, was also among others to slap Jimmy on the gag.

David said: “You can clearly tell a joke about the Holocaust that is callous and inhumane and involves fiery and racist.

“Or you can say one that targets the oppressors, or draws attention to the fundamental evil of it, or shines and illuminates the humanity of the victims.

“It’s not the subject of the joke that matters, it’s the details of the individual joke. Obviously, Jimmy Carr’s was the first.

Meanwhile, Tory MP and Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries told BBC News the gag order was “abhorrent”.

Speaking to viewers about cancel culture and transgender issues throughout a gap monologue, Gervais tells viewers, “Ah ladies. Not all the ladies, I mean the old fashioned ladies, you already know the ones with bellies? Those fucking dinosaurs.

“I really like the brand new ladies. They are nice, aren’t they? The new ones we have seen these days. The ones with beards and a***s. They are about as good as gold, I really like them.

‘And now the elders are saying ‘oh they want to use our toilets’. Why shouldn’t they use your bathrooms? For the girls! They are girls, look at their pronouns!

Playing a dialogue, he proposes: “What about this individual who is not a girl? “Well, his penis.” His penis, fucking bigot! “And if he rapes me? What if she rapes you, you fucking TERF w***e?

The British comedian didn’t hold back on the program and also joked about “taboo” topics like Hitler, famine and AIDS.

And he was praised for the “zero f***s given” approach to the Netflix special.

One viewer said: ‘How dare comedian/actor Ricky Gervais make funny and accurate jokes about people with no self-awareness!’

Another said: ‘Well the far left mob is trying to cancel comedian Ricky Gervais again for making jokes about trans people.

“I saw the track and even though the jokes were good. Light, no hate. I’m going to have to rush to watch the entire show now in case it gets taken down.

A third added: “I watch #SuperNature partly because everyone is already offended.

“Being offensive is comedic currency, and the world has pretty much lost that perspective. I’m grateful to Ricky Gervais for not giving any because I only have five minutes and I’m crying.

Others took to Twitter to share their enjoyment of the special, which was filmed during his final tour, with many fans rushing to Twitter to praise the comic.

One wrote: ‘I’m not even 10 minutes away from #SuperNature and this is hands down the funniest comedy special I’ve ever seen.

Another said on Twitter: “I can’t remember the last time I laughed out loud at a stand-up as much as I am currently at SuperNature.” Ricky Gervais, absolutely brilliant.’

A second wrote: The guy never fails! Another Ricky Gervais masterpiece with #SuperNature. Absolute National Treasure.’

A third added: “SuperNature was awesome. Your comedic perspective is the perfect antidote to taking this crazy world too seriously.

A fourth wrote: “Screamed for the last 64 minutes. Tears run down my cheeks. It was worth the wait! Just awesome !’

Gervais’ new show comes days after Netflix recently cut 290 employees – targeting many of the company’s most woke workers who are prolific warriors for social justice on social media, it has been claimed. .

The struggling streaming service ended several projects that aimed to discuss race and LGBTQ issues, Variety reported, and cut various employees who worked there and promoted them.

A total of 150 recruiters were laid off, along with 70 other animators and 70 contractors working on promotional material for the company, including social media and publishing.

Netflix claimed its latest layoffs were due to “slowing revenue and declining subscriber numbers.” But online critics speculated the layoffs were part of a woke cleanup.

SuperNature has, however, received online criticism for its controversial subjects.

One viewer said on Twitter: ‘Netflix, do you want to comment on sectarian hate? Platforming hate, whether it’s racism, homophobia, sexism OR transphobia, is wrong!

“So why talk about the sectarianism of Ricky Gervais? Why encourage others to target trans people with these “jokes”. It’s NOT angry, it’s NOT controversial, IT’S HATE. STOP!’

Another said: ‘Ricky Gervais has a new stand-up show on Netflix today. 5 minutes later, he’s making jokes about trans women attacking and raping people in public restrooms.

“To him, we only exist as a punchline, a threat, something less than human.”

A third added: ‘Ricky Gervais is a disgrace he is going to cause hate crimes and ultimately the deaths of trans people.’ Anyone who needs to vilify minorities for a laugh is the meanest, most hateful soul and is in serious need of mental help.

It comes after Jimmy Carr came under fire in February this year after it emerged he had joked about the deaths of six million Jews in the Holocaust.

The comedian received a barrage of uproar in a clip from his Netflix special which saw him joke that the “thousands of gypsies killed by the Nazis” were a “positive” consequence of the Holocaust.

In the Netflix footage, the 8 in 10 Cats presenter said: ‘When people talk about the Holocaust, they talk about the tragedy and horror of six million Jewish lives lost to the war machine. Nazi”. But they never mention the thousands of gypsies who were killed by the Nazis. Nobody ever talks about it because nobody wants to talk about the positives.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman called the joke “unacceptable”, while Health Secretary Sajid Javid urged people to boycott the hour-long special.

Jewish comedian David Baddiel, 57, was also among others to slap Jimmy on the gag.

David said: “Obviously you can tell a cruel, inhumane, mean-spirited, racist Holocaust joke.”

“Or you can say one that targets the oppressors, or draws attention to the fundamental evil of it, or shines and illuminates the humanity of the victims.

“It’s not the subject of the joke that matters, it’s the details of the individual joke. Obviously, Jimmy Carr’s was the first.
