Comedian Ricky Gervias got high endorsement for his new Netflix special "Ricky Gervais: SuperNature," from Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Wednesday.

Musk posted on Twitter "@NetflixIsAJoke @rickygervais Great show!"

In the special, which premiered on the streaming platform on Tuesday, Gervais took aim at transgender people, and those that label concerned women as "TERFs."

TERF, or Trans-exclusionary Radical Feminist, has been a title given to those who oppose the notion that transgender women are women, a title that has been given to those such as author JK Rowling.

"Oh, women!" Gervais announced. "Not all women, I mean the old-fashioned ones. The old-fashioned women, the ones with wombs. Those f***ing dinosaurs."

"I love the new women. They’re great, aren’t they? The new ones we’ve been seeing lately. The ones with beards and c*cks. They’re as good as gold, I love them," he went on.

Gervais went on to have a discussion with himself, playing both the role of those on the left who defend the usage of bathrooms by people who identify as a gender different than their biological one and the role of concerned women, who have shown their concerns with biological men being permitted in women’s spaces, like bathrooms.

In a different segment, Gervais discussed actor and comedian Kevin Hart retreating from hosting the Oscars in 2018 after previous tweets surfaced that were regarded as homophobic.

"You can’t predict what will be offensive in the future," Gervais announced. "You don’t know who the dominant mob will be. Like, the worst thing you can say today, get you canceled on Twitter, death threats, the worst thing you can say today is, ‘Women don’t have penises,’ right? Now, no one saw that coming. You won’t find a ten-year-old tweet of someone saying, ‘Women don’t have penises.’ Do you know why? We didn’t think we f***ing had to!"

According to Variety, the special garnered denouncement on social media, with some posting on Twitter that they have revoked their Netflix subscription.

In response to Gervais’ special and the backlash, transgender YouTuber and political commentator Blaire White announced on Twitter that "He is not transphobic. He is bullshitphobic."

The new special comes around seven months since Dave Chappelle’s special "The Closer" premiered on the platform, where his jokes about transgender people ended in widespread opposition, and LGBTQ Netflix employees walking out.

In the months since, Netflix has stood by the special, declaring in a recent memo that workers may have to work on material that they do not ideologically agree with, and if they have a problem with that, they should seek employment somewhere else.
