Ricky Gervais is stirring up controversy once again.

In his new Netflix standup special “SuperNature”, the British comedian makes a number of jokes about transgender identity, garnering plenty of criticism on social media.

“I know there are loads of funny women… Dame Edna Everage,” he said, referring to the drag character played by Australian comedian Barry Humphries.

“Eddie Izzard. She’s brilliant, isn’t she? She’s not only a great comedienne, she’s also a great actress, isn’t she? She was brilliant in that thing as that man,” Gervais added.

Izzard has been openly trans since 1985, and in 2020 announced that she prefers the pronouns “she/her.”

Gervais continued his jokes about the trans community, taking aim at changing notions of womanhood.

“Oh, women! Not all women, I mean the old-fashioned ones. The old-fashioned women, the ones with wombs. Those f**king dinosaurs,” he said. “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**ks. They’re as good as gold, I love them.

“And now the old-fashioned ones say, ‘Oh, they want to use our toilets.’ ‘Why shouldn’t they use your toilets?’ ‘For ladies!’ ‘They are ladies — look at their pronouns! What about this person isn’t a lady?’ ‘Well, his penis.’ ‘Her penis, you f**king bigot!’ ‘What if he rapes me?’ ‘What if she rapes you, you f**king TERF w**re?’”

Minutes later in the special, Gervais referenced the controversy over Kevin Hart stepping down as Oscars host in 2018 over past homophobic tweets.

“You can’t predict what will be offensive in the future,” he said. “You don’t know who the dominant mob will be. Like, the worst thing you can say today, get you cancelled 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 saying ‘Women don’t have penises.’ You know why? We didn’t think we f**king had to!”

Near the end of the special, Gervais added, “Full disclosure: In real life of course I support trans rights. I support all human rights, and trans rights are human rights. Live your best life. Use your preferred pronouns. Be the gender that you feel you are. But meet me halfway, ladies. Lose the c**k. That’s all I’m saying.”

GLAAD released a statement Tuesday reacting to the special, calling out “dangerous, anti-trans rants masquerading as jokes.”

ET Canada has reached out to Gervais’ rep for comment.

On Twitter, Gervais came in for much criticism for the jokes about trans women.

Last week, in an appearance on Jim Norton & Sam Roberts’ SiriusXM show, Gervais anticipated the negative reaction to some of his jokes in the new special.

“To me, there’s nothing controversial in that because it’s just jokes,” he said. “I even explain what ‘irony’ is at the beginning of the f**king show, and everyone there, I don’t know how many people I played to – half a million people – no complaints. They laughed at all the things, right? But everyone’s gonna complain about everything in it. Every single line, someone is going to complain, either because they hate it, they don’t get it, it’s coming after… Here’s the thing about comedy. I can list 20 taboo subjects. Everyone in the world laughs at 19 of them, and hates the one that affects them.”
