    Comedian and actor Ricky Gervais this week doled out a message to the youngsters in Generation Z: you can never be "woke" enough, and there will come a day when you get eaten by your increasingly strict and bizarre standards.

    Joining Sam Harris on his podcast "Absolutely Mental," Gervais mocked Gen Z, "I want to live long enough to see the younger generation not be woke enough for the next generation."

    "It's going to happen," the "After Life" star promised. "Don't they realize that it's like, they're next? That's what's funny."

    "We kicked out the old guard. We did it," Gervais said. "There's only so woke and liberal you can get and then you start going the other way. But it's inevitable."

    Fox News noted that Gervais in December similarly took a swing at progressivism and cancel culture.

    "The scary thing is being canceled if you say the wrong thing and suddenly Netflix can take you off their platform," he told the "SmartLess" podcast.

    "You could be the most woke, politically correct stand-up in the world at the moment, but you don't know what it's going to be like in 10 years time," the 60-year-old argued. "You can get canceled for things you said ten years ago."

    "The misunderstanding about cancel culture is some people think you should be able to say anything you want without consequences, and that's not true because we're members of society and people are allowed to criticize you," Gervais continued. "They're allowed to not buy your things, they're allowed to burn your DVDs, and they're allowed to turn the telly off. What they're not allowed to do is to bully other people into not going to see you."

    Notably, there have been increasing calls from some on the Left to de-platform comedian Dave Chappelle from Netflix. His crime is telling jokes concerning transgenderism and, ironically, the hateful backlash people get for daring to disagree with the leftist ideology.

    Gervais, again, made politically incorrect noise in 2020 when he hosted the Golden Globes and took Hollywood leftists to task. The Daily Wire reported at the time:

    Gervais [roasted] the liberal Hollywood elite for their woke posturing while living degenerate lives, highlighting friendships with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to shady business deals with communist China.

    "If you do win an award tonight, don't use it as a political platform to make a political speech," Gervais told Hollywood. "You're in no position to lecture the public about anything, you know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God - and f*** off, okay?"
