Caitlyn Jenner reveals her revenge plan against Ricky Gervais' Golden Globes joke

Los Angeles - Caitlyn Jenner has responded to Ricky Gervais' Golden Globes dig.

The British comedian caused controversy when he said that Caitlyn "didn't do a lot for women drivers".

The joke was a reference to the crash Caitlyn was involved in, in February 2015 that claimed the life of a woman.

But asked about Ricky's comments during a chat as part of the Television Critics Tour in Pasadena, California, on Thursday, Caitlyn admitted she has already planned how to exact her revenge.

She said: "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."

After Ricky's joke at the awards last Sunday, the comedian was quickly lambasted by fans on Twitter.

But he responded: "Suggesting a joke about Caitlin [sic] Jenner is automatically transphobic is like suggesting a joke about Bill Cosby is automatically racist."

Caitlyn was speaking to reporters as she promoted the second season of her E! reality show I Am Cait.

She explained: "I'm only a spokesman for me and my story. I have so much to learn in this community."

"I am sure we all love good clothes, all that kind of stuff. I really want the people to get to know all of my friends. This is a different show. This is about a serious issue."

I Am Cait season two premieres on 6 March.
