‘I’m not allowing this’: Yaniv vows to stop Ricky Gervais’ Vancouver show
Trans activist Jessica Yaniv is back, and we’re giving her attention yet again. After recently suing yet another immigrant-owned beauty salon for allegedly not waxing Jessica’s hairy legs, Yaniv has also publicly denounced one of the world’s most buzzing comedians: Ricky Gervais.
Gervais, who just knocked his Golden Globe hosting duties out of the park, recently announced that he would be touring North America and Europe, with stops in Toronto and Vancouver. While most Canadians with a good sense of humour are likely fans of Gervais, at least one Vancouverite felt as though the tour should have no place in her city.
“No,” tweeted Yaniv. “I’m not allowing this,” she replied to news of Gervais’ visit.
Gervais and Yaniv have a bit of a history. Last fall, Gervais caught wind of the first round of Yaniv hysteria involving Jessica, unsuccessfully, trying to sue immigrant women for not waxing her male genitals.
This prompted Gervais to poke fun at her, joking that he would dress as Yaniv for Halloween, tweeting: “I was going to dress up as something weird and creepy for my Halloween party, but I’m bucking the trend this year and I’m going as brave female activist Jessica Yaniv. This also means I don’t have to wax my big old hairy balls.”
This led to “backlash,” as bloggers who couldn’t take a joke became upset that Gervais would dare poke fun at a brave, beautiful woman like Yaniv. The joke, though, wasn’t off-brand for the comedian. In his 2015 Netflix comedy special Humanity, Gervais joked similarly about Caitlyn Jenner’s driving troubles.
“She became a role model for trans people everywhere–showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes. She didn’t do a lot for women drivers.”
Despite all the faux-controversy, Gervais’ tour is expected to sell out internationally.
“Considered the most influential British comedian since Charlie Chaplin, Ricky Gervais is an award-winning stand-up comedian, with five international tours to date,” Live Nation posted in the show’s announcement.
“His live stand-up show ‘Fame’ became the fastest-selling UK stand-up show in history. Gervais can most recently be seen in the dark comedy ‘After Life,’ which he created, directs, stars in and executive produced.”

Notorious trans rights activist and alleged child sex predator Jessica Yaniv has made yet another dubious claim. This time, Yaniv has accused The Post Millennial’s Amy Eileen Hamm of sexual assault.
In a post to Twitter late Wednesday night, Yaniv accused Hamm of misconduct at a British Columbia courthouse. The misconduct would have taken place while Yaniv was appearing in court on weapons charges.
In the tweet, Yaniv also accuses the B.C. Provincial Court, the B.C. Sheriff’s department, and the B.C. RCMP of doing “nothing” about the assault.
“They are investigating that, but put that BITCH behind bars,” tweeted Yaniv. “She HURTS PEOPLE and the #LGBTQ Yes I am furious.”
Yaniv falsely accused Hamm of photographing her in the women’s washroom during a recess in her recent court appearance—an accusation that the authorities on the scene were quick to dismiss.
The weapons charges stem from a livestream with YouTuber and TPM columnist Blaire White where Yaniv was attempting to clear her name of allegations against her for sexual misconduct with minors and ended up brandishing illegal weapons.
The Post Millennial reached out to Hamm, who said,“During court recess, I entered the women’s washroom and saw JY standing in the common area. I immediately backed out of the room, fearing for my own safety and not wanting to be confined in a small room with this person.”
This latest false allegation comes only days after a video of Yaniv actually assaulting reporter Keean Bexte went viral on Twitter.
Yaniv rose to prominence after filing 16 human rights complains with the provincial human rights tribunal wherein she accused numerous salons and salon workers of transphobia for their reluctance and eventual refusal to wax Yaniv’s male genitalia.
All salons that Yaniv accused of transphobia had specifically told Yaniv that they only provided their service to female genitalia. At the time of the waxing conundrum, Yaniv was still using her given male name on social media, which could have caused all the more confusion for the estheticians
Rebel Media commentator Keean Bexte announced Wednesday night he is working with RCMP in an ongoing investigation into trans activist Jessica Yaniv’s physical altercation with Bexte outside a B.C. courthouse Monday.
“Jonathan Yaniv assaulted me outside of a courthouse on Monday. And I’m very, very pleased to announce now that the RCMP are officially investigating him on criminal assault,” Bexte said in a video released on Twitter.
Yaniv could spend as much as five years in prison if found guilty.
Back on Monday, Yaniv appeared in court for prohibited weapons charges. While leaving the courthouse, Yaniv rushed at Bexte–who was asking if Yaniv would plead guilty while filming video–and attacked him. The video released went viral with millions of views.
The Rebel is also crowdfunding as it plans to file a civil suit against Yaniv as well for the attack. The media outlet prides itself in not just covering the news, but being a part of it.
“Depending on how it goes, this lawsuit could cost us as much as $40,000. But it’s about finally standing up to a bully who is so brazen that he actually felt confident attacking me, right outside a courthouse where he was already on trial for weapons offences. Someone’s got to finally stop him, and it looks like it has to be David and me,” says the Rebel article that also asks for donations to help pay for the lawsuit.
Last year Yaniv got in a physical altercation outside of her home with another Rebel Media personality, David Menzies.
Jessica Yaniv is no stranger to violating other people’s rights, but the scene outside of the Surrey Law Courts was shocking as Yaniv was caught on camera violently assaulting Rebel Media reporter Keean Bexte.
Leaving the courthouse after appearing on prohibited weapons charges, Bexte is recording from a distance that appears to be well over fifteen feet. He asks Yaniv whether the trans activist will be pleading guilty, but is stopped short as Yaniv rapidly approaches and begins swiping at him with an outstretched arm.
Yaniv is heard shouting “Go! Go!” to the reporter, and despite Bexte’s rapid retreat, Yaniv continues to pursue, appearing to grab the reporter’s microphone. An off-screen scuffle ensues, with a brief frame catching Yaniv seeming to violently club Bexte over the head. Bexte is heard groaning in pain and for Yaniv to stop the assault.
When the camera reorients, Yaniv continues to chase Bexte, demanding he “go away from me!”
In the tweet attached to the video, Bexte states that Yaniv “punched me in the back of the head” and that he “[needed] an Advil.”
The Rebel Media reporter noted that there are multiple security cameras that may have caught the altercation and that he had spoken to police.
“Following Yaniv’s court appearance at the courthouse in Surrey I approached him outside – where filming was allowed. I had one question. I wanted to know if he would be pleading guilty or not. Within several seconds, Yaniv charged me and punched the back of my head while holding me down. Police have been reluctant to charge him before, and so I’m speaking to legal council to figure out my options to make sure this menace sees justice,” Bexte told The Post Millennial.
Bexte had been banned from reporting from inside the courtroom today where Yaniv had been appearing, with courthouse police capitulating to Yaniv’s demands to have him barred. Previously, Yaniv had also successfully demanded citizen journalist Donald Smith be prevented from entering the courthouse.
Earlier this evening, Yaniv confronted The Post Millennial’s Amy Eileen Hamm, falsely accusing her of taking photographs of Yaniv in the women’s washroom. The police searched Hamm’s phone at Yaniv’s request, finding none of the claimed photos.
Notorious trans activist Jessica Yaniv appeared in a British Columbia court today where she faced two counts of possession of a prohibited weapon violating the Firearms Act. During recess, Yaniv falsely accused this reporter of taking photographs of her in the women’s washroom.
I entered the woman’s washroom, noticed that Yaniv was there, and quickly exited. Police responded to Yaniv’s false claim by searching my phone, only to discover that I had not done what Yaniv had claimed. He yelled at me that he was going to charge me with “voyeurism.” I was also verbally harassed by Yaniv’s mother, Miriam.
Before the hearing, Yaniv successfully had Keean Bexte of The Rebel News kicked out of the courthouse.
Yaniv requested a publication ban. The hearing was then moved to another room where Yaniv cited “harassment” as the reason for requesting the ban. The presiding judge did not agree to the ban. “There is no power in the criminal code for me to do that. I am rejecting your application.” Justice Jette said.
Yaniv told the judge that she was “in-between lawyers” and needed more time. She requested a new court date and one was granted for February 10, 2020.
Yaniv was arrested in August by RCMP after appearing on popular YouTuber Blaire White’s channel. On a live stream, she displayed the functionality of a taser and claimed to be fully aware of its illegality.
