Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness Calls Out John Cleese as Transphobic

If you missed it, over the weekend, Monty Python star and Harry Potter actor John Cleese made several controversial statements that are being called out as transphobic after he defended JK Rowling, who has also made transphobic statements.

Now, Queer Eye‘s Jonathan Van Ness is publicly calling out Cleese as well.

“Dear @JohnCleese you’ve made several transphobic comments here. You do seem to not only be interested in trans folks, but also adding to transphobia at a time when trans people are being murdered world wide. Trans & non binary people aren’t being treated kindly,” Jonathan posted in a series of tweets at the actor.

He then added, “Instead of worrying about American democracy worry about the transphobia gripping the UK. Worry about the staggering inequality your country faces & keep LGBTQ issues out of your chapped ass lip having mouth unless you due to some miracle become an ally.”
