The Office creator just schooled a lot of disgruntled people on Twitter.
It's International Women's Day where we celebrate all things women and highlight the plight of many across the world.
So naturally there's been plenty of people and meninists bemoaning the absence of an International Men's Day, with others just asking when it is.

When is International Men's Day?— Tyler (@I_AM_WILDCAT) March 8, 2016
But Ricky Gervais has shut down all the haters in the best way ever. With cold hard facts... and a simple reminder that there is an International Men's Day and it happens every November.
See his tweet below:
It's #InternationalWomensDay. Don't embarrass yourself by asking why there's no international men's day. There is. Nov 19th. You're welcome.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) March 8, 2016
Well that's settled then!
Gervais wasn't the only one who knew about it either, or at least searched for it as these Twitter users proved...
