Elliot Page has been in talks after he revealed his character was changed in the latest season of The Umbrella Academy. In 2020, the actor came out to the public and disclosed his identity as a transgender male. Later, this change was incorporated into the script of the third season of the Netflix series. His character Vanya was changed to Viktor. In a recent interview, Elliot Page shared that the fans have had a positive reaction to the change. But there are a few who seem to have an issue with that.
Among them is Jordan Peterson, who misgendered the actor knowingly and got brutally trolled.
Jordan Peterson deliberately misgenders Elliot Page in a recent tweet
Jordan Peterson is a clinical psychologist, author, and YouTube personality. He started getting a lot of attention in the 2010s as a public intellectual for his views on cultural and political issues. He is often called a conservative. Even he tends to describe himself as a “classic British liberal” and a “traditionalist.” And his recent tweet about the actor who came out and revealed himself to be a trans male seems to point it out quite well.
Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician. https://t.co/iXClHaYzuF

In the tweet, the psychologist conveniently called Elliot Page “her” despite the fact that he now goes by the pronouns, he and him. He even called him “Ellen Page” in the tweet, which had a NewYork Post tweet attached to it, with the name of the actor. The tweet was wrong on many levels and Twitter had an accurate response.
Twitter brutally trolls Jordan Peterson
Twitter users gave Jordan Peterson a fitting response for his tweet on Elliot Page. He knowingly misgendered the actor and got what he deserved. Twitter flooded with troll tweets about the personality and they gave him a strong comeback. Many called him out for his behavior. He even turned off his comments soon after tweeting.
Check out some of the tweets below:
this loser turned off his comments because he got bullied too hard the last time he tried to tweet https://t.co/48JUMGij7M

This wet noodle can’t even keep his replies open while he spews hatred towards someone literally minding their own damn business.

Jordan Peterson got the response he deserved for commenting on the actor coming out to the public and that too during Pride Month. The month where people must give up on such prejudices and be more open and accepting of the gender diversity in the community.
