True Ricky Gervais DissCaitlyn Jenner is firing back at Ricky Gervais after the actor poked fun at the transgender star at the Golden Globes on Sunday night. Jenner responded to the jab on Thursday during a TCA panel for I Am Cait. "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," she said. In his opening monologue at Sunday's Golden Globes, Gervais said, "I've changed. Not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously – now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. What a year she's had. She became a role model for trans people everywhere." "She didn't do a lot for women drivers, but you can't have everything," he then added, referencing Jenner's involvement in a deadly car accident in last year. After coming under fire for the joke, Gervais defended his stance on Twitter, saying, "Suggesting a joke about Caitlin Jenner is automatically transphobic is like suggesting a joke about Bill Cosby is automatically racist."
