Trans activist Jessica Yaniv has returned and we are paying attention once again. After recently suing another immigrant-owned beauty salon for allegedly not shaving Jessica’s hairy legs, Yaniv has also publicly denounced one of the most lively comedians in the world: Ricky Gervais.
Gervais, who has just eliminated his duties as host of the Golden Globe outside the park, recently announced that he would be touring North America and Europe, with stops in Toronto and Vancouver. While most Canadians with a good sense of humor are probably Gervais fans, at least one Vancouverite felt that the tour should not take place in their city.
“No,” Yaniv tweeted. “I am not allowing this,” he replied to the news of Gervais’ visit.
Gervais and Yaniv have a little history. Last fall, Gervais learned about the first round of Yaniv hysteria that involved Jessica, unsuccessfully, trying to sue immigrant women for not shaving the male genitals.
This led Gervais to make fun of her, joking that she would dress like Yaniv for Halloween, and tweeted: “I was going to disguise myself as something strange and creepy for my Halloween party, but I’m breaking the trend this year and I’m going as brave female activist Jessica Yaniv. This also means that I don’t have to shave my big hairy balls. “
This led to a “violent reaction”, as bloggers who couldn’t make a joke got upset because Gervais would dare to make fun of a brave and beautiful woman like Yaniv. The joke, however, was not off the mark for the comedian. In his Netflix comedy special 2015 Humanity, Gervais joked similarly about Caitlyn Jenner’s driving problems.
“It became a role model for trans people everywhere, showing great courage to break down barriers and destroy stereotypes. She didn’t do much for women drivers. “
Despite all the false controversy, the Gervais tour is expected to sell out internationally.
“Considered the most influential British comedian since Charlie Chaplin, Ricky Gervais is an award-winning comedian, with five international tours to date,” Live Nation published in the show’s announcement.
“His live show” Fame “became the best-selling stand-up in the United Kingdom in history. Gervais can be seen more recently in the dark comedy” After Life “, which created, directs, stars and produces in a way executive. “
