Stewart Lee triggers Ricky Gervais

Ricky Gervais posted the section of his recent stand-up where he portrays transgender people as rapists dressed as women lurking in ladies rooms. 

There has been much speculation as to why Gervais decided to brag about his success with bigots this week, and the general consensus is that he was triggered by Stewart Lee, in this recent interview.

Fans also noticed the five-time Golden Globe host liked a string of tweets, with one describing Stewart as having ‘never been relevant or funny.’

I’m joking of course! But should anything be off-limits for humour, especially during the horror of The Corona Virus (Wuhan Bat and Pangolin Snack ™ ® Co Ltd)? It’s a question answered by Ricky Gervais himself in a syndicated Press Association interview provided free to the Aberdeen Evening Express, and newspapers nationwide, in March. The “Wokefinder General” (Sarah Vine, Daily Mail) concluded: “There is no better tool to get you through bad things… than with a sense of humour.” I am sure this was a sentiment shared privately by his cast every day during the filming of After Life (Netflix).

And James Alcaster has to my knowledge gone after Gervais most directly for his transgender bigotry.

I've mentioned Lee on this blog before clashing with members of the Intellectual Dark Web - racists Toby Young and Emil O W Kirkegaard.

The best thing about Stewart Lee triggering Ricky Gervais is that more people have discovered who Stewart Lee is.
