The 78-year-old Monty Python icon tweeted Tuesday: "In December I visited Netflix to pitch the idea of a 'Special' They must have hated the idea because they never got back to me, or returned any of my agent's phone calls or emails ! Recently someone showed me one of the 'Specials' they did commission. It was very original...A hgely (sic) likeable and jolly young woman did a highly original routine based on the fact that she was so 'fat' that she couldn't find her own 'p*ssy' My only disappointment was that when I approached Netflix in December I had not known the sort of material they were looking for." Byer tweeted in response: "IS. THIS. TWEET. ABOUT. ME?!?!?!? @JohnCleese was this jolly young woman a black?" Byer later retweeted the following tweet: "John Cleese, old white guy, subtweeted @nicolebyer because Netflix didn't give him what he wanted thus displaying a new mode of old white dude tantrum we haven't seen before."
