To the outrage of progressive critics at Gervais’ comedic section, Gervais delved into material about pronouns and gender identity mocked by the trans community in the opening remarks.

The 2-minute comedy routine was enough to get critics to give the special an overall negative review.Emily Raibert Jezebel Calling Gervais a “little jerk” and complaining about Netflix’s platforming of another anti-trans comedian.
Leibert wrote: “Last time, it was Dave Chappelle who trumpeted transphobia on his special The Closer, which sparked a strike by Netflix’s LGBTQ+ employees. This time, it was a little jerk named Ricky Gervais who suffered 100% jerk and 0% funny unlucky ratio.”
She later added: “If Netflix wants to be home to this historical comedy special they have to do much better than paying a British man to make fun of minorities and trans people, I’m sorry to say it’s not even an original of.”
Raibert isn’t the only critic who feels this way.Agia Romano sound slammed Netflix for releasing the special, claiming they could inflict paranoid hate speech on its users.
“Netflix put up with the views of phobic fools. It’s fine to inflict paranoid hate speech on its subscribers. It’s fine to amplify the subsequent real-world harm these views do. In unprecedented anti-trans legislation In the midst of a wave, it is unconscionable that the platform chooses to release this special now,” Romano wrote.
Ian Thomas Malone Said: “It’s fundamentally pathetic for a guy who has nothing to fight for but a cheap cash grab. Gervais’ blunt knife is far from the first to dedicate much of his performance to defending CK or Hart Mainstream comedian, he just lacks the edge he thinks he has when he’s on stage laughing at his own jokes.”
Sean L. McCarthy decision maker Said: “Gervais warned us in his on-stage intro that he was a guy who ‘really didn’t need to do that’. He was right. He didn’t need the hour. And you don’t need to watch either.”

exist Audience of panel viewers, such as Mike S, praised the comedians for their timely, insightful and brilliant performances.

Split between Rotten Tomatoes critics and audience is one that many have noticed over the past few years. There’s no better way to expose a progressive agenda in the media than when you see critics praising movies that audiences hate or bashing movies that audiences love.
