Elliott Page has been in talks after revealing his role has changed in the latest season of The Umbrella Academy. In 2020, the actor came out as a transgender male. This change was later incorporated into the script for the third season of the Netflix series. His character Vanya becomes Victor. In a recent interview, Elliott Page shared the positive reaction from fans to the change. But some people seem to have doubts about it.

Jordan Peterson deliberately mistaken Elliott Page’s gender in a recent tweet
Jordan Peterson is a clinical psychologist, author, and YouTube personality. In the 2010s, he began to gain widespread attention 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 that he is a trans male seems to point it out nicely.

In the tweet, the psychologist conveniently referred to Elliot Page as “she,” despite the fact that he now uses the pronouns he and he. He even referred to him as “Ellen Page” in a tweet, which was accompanied by a New York Post tweet with the actor’s name. The tweet was wrong on many levels, and Twitter has an accurate response.
