Caitlyn Jenner has hit back at Ricky Gervais after Golden Globes ‘joke’
Gervais hosted the Golden Globe awards earlier this week but his opening jokes led to many online complaints. Gervais had joked: “I’ve changed. Well, not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously – now Caitlyn Jenner.”
He went on to reference Jenner’s driving ability after she was involved in a car crash that killed one person and injured seven.
“What a year she’s had. 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, but you can’t do everything,” he said.
Now Jenner has hit back during the Television Critics Association tour in Pasadena, where she is promoting the new series of her reality show ‘I Am Cait’.
She said to reporters: “On Ricky, I think what I’m gonna do is call the Golden Globes and see if they need a new host for next year, and we’ll solve that problem.”
“I’m only a spokesman for me and my story. I have so much to learn in this community,” she added.
Ricky Gervais has defended his routine, insisting he is not transphobic but ‘transportphobic’!
