Woke Mob Goes After John Cleese Over Support For J.K. Rowling

(PresidentialWire.com)- The woke mob has a new target. This time, they’re after legendary comedian and star of Monty Python John Cleese.

His crime? Defending J.K. Rowling, the author of the hugely popular Harry Potter series, over claims of “transphobia.” The British comedian, who is known for speaking his mind, expressed support for Rowling as she continues to face a massive backlash for publicly suggesting that biological women are real.

Can you believe that in 2020 we’re getting canceled for simply saying women exist?

It all started in September when Cleese announced that he had added his name to a list of signatories who stood in solidarity with Rowling. One Twitter activist screenshotted the statement on November 22 and asked Cleese to expand, and then asked why Cleese can’t “just let people be who they want to be.”

“Do you actually think there is some deep conspiracy to turn people ‘against their genders’?” the user asked.

Cleese responded by saying he wanted to be a Cambodian policewoman.

“Is that allowed, or am I being unrealistic?”

The joke referenced the identity politics of the woke left, which suggests that everybody can be who they want to be. And it went down like a ton of bricks among the wokeys online.

One user was particularly nasty, describing how they had witnessed Cleese fall out of a wheelchair in front of a crowd of students while speaking about how his wife treated him badly during his divorce. As if that had anything to do with the argument.

See how nasty they get when people disagree with them?

Academic David Gorski also said, “It’s sad when an old comedian whose work I loved back in the day can no longer come up with decent material and instead regurgitates a variant of the same old unfunny joke endlessly repeated by anti-trans bigots.”

What is it with these guys?

Cleese, however, doubled down and reminded people he is “not that interested in trans folks.”

“I just hope they’re happy and that people treat them kindly,” he added.

The woke mob will try to cancel anybody…including legends!
