‘Go back to sleep you old b*tch’: Twitter Brutally Trolls Jordan Peterson For Deliberately Misgendering Elliot Page

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.

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.

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.
