While Ricky Gervais has yet to explicitly acknowledge Lee’s taunt, he tweeted on Saturday (September 10), “Watch the award-winning, record-breaking #AfterLife now on Netflix around the world.”
Alongside this message, he shared a clip from the series in which his aggressive character, Tony, calls someone else a “fat, hairy, nosy c**ksucker.”
Gervais has also “liked” a number of posts about Lee from his fans, including one in which someone described Lee as “never funny.”
Another tweet that Gervais “liked” read, “I don’t even know who Stewart Lee is but his comments about him After the live really makes him look like a sad, bitter person.”
