Ricky Gervais blasts Caitlyn Jenner... Again

2016-01-18 16:00

Los Angeles - Ricky Gervais has hit out at Caitlyn Jenner again.

During his recent stint as Golden Globe Awards host, the 54-year-old comedian blasted the transgender reality TV star who was involved in a fatal car accident in Malibu in which one person died.

In response to Ricky's comments, Caitlyn quipped: "I think what I'm going to do is call the Golden Globes and see if they need a new host for next year. We'll solve that problem."

However, Ricky was unimpressed and tweeted: "Please, please, please let her host the @goldenglobes. Just don't let her drive."

In response to reports saying that Caitlyn had "broken her silence", Ricky added: "At last. She always brakes too late."

During his opening monologue, Ricky joked: "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, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes. She didn't do a lot for women drivers, but you can't have everything, can ya?"

Previously, when people claimed the joke was transphobic, Ricky insisted he would not say sorry.

He tweeted: "Suggesting a joke about Caitlin Jenner is automatically transphobic is like suggesting a joke about Bill Cosby is automatically racist. You have every right to be offended. Just don't cry when no one cares (sic)."

And he went on to defend himself on Twitter, when one person wrote: "Re: Ricky Gervais's defence [sic] of his Caitlyn Jenner joke. If your joke is about a person's transition, it's probably transphobic (sic)."

Ricky hit back, saying: "What if it was about her killing someone with her car? Would that be okay? I made a joke about Caitlyn Jenner killing someone in her car. I'm #TransportPhobic (sic)."

Previously, Caitlyn was cleared of any criminal wrongdoing in relation to the car crash last February.
