Morgan also took the opportunity to insult comedian Nish Kumar, who previously criticized Gervais’ jokes about the trans community.
“Watch after #SuperNature At@Netflix– absolutely outrageous, fabulously offensive, hilariously funny and already pissing off all the right people@MrNishKumarwho are too awake, humorless & dumb to understand the comedy. Brilliant work@rickygervais‘ Morgan tweeted on Tuesday (May 24), the day of Super Natures release.
Last year, footage surfaced of Kumar ratting on Gervais during his 2018 stand-up tour.

Gervais recently introduced Morgan’s new show Uncensoredwho Morgan had promised to cancel the culture during his first episode on TalkTV.
super nature was denounced by some viewers, who called Gervais’ subject matter “toxic” and “transphobic”.
In a clip that circulated on social media, Gervais says: “Oh women! Not all women, I mean the old-fashioned ones. The old-fashioned women with wombs.
“Those damn dinosaurs. I love the new women. You are great, aren’t you? The new ones we’ve seen lately. The ones with beards and c***s. They are as good as gold, I love them.”
In its two-star rating for The Independent, Nick Hilton wrote, “As is all too common these days, the longest riff is reserved for the humiliation of trans people. ‘Full Disclosure,’ [Gervais] reveals towards the end of the show: “In real life, of course, I support the rights of trans people.”
“At this point, there are a few stray cheers from the naïve few in the audience who believe the irony is genuine, but that’s nothing compared to the roar of laughter and applause when the punchline — a blatant joke about operations at Sex determination – arrives.”
