‘The It Crowd’ Creator Graham Linehan Banned From Twitter Over Transphobic Tweets

Graham Linehan, creator of the British sitcoms “The It Crowd” and “Father Ted,” was banned from Twitter on Saturday after making transphobic comments on his social media account.

According to The Guardian, Twitter’s decision to ban Linehan came after he reportedly tweeted “men aren’t women tho” in response to a Pride post by the Women’s Institute in support of its transgender members. Twitter says it permanently suspended Linehan’s account, @glinner, for “repeated violations of our rules against hateful conduct and platform manipulation.”

Linehan has, in recent years, made several transphobic remarks, comparing trans activism to Nazism in a radio interview in 2018.
