Last Sunday at the Golden Globes, Gervais joked:
“What a year [Caitlyn Jenner’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.”
Jenner, at a Television Critics Association event promoting the second season of I Am Cait, was asked about Gervais' performance. She responded, “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."
Gervais responded to the response, bringing it back to the 2015 fatal car crash Jenner was involved in that killed a 69-year-old woman in Malibu.
Please, please, please let her host The @goldenglobes. Just don't let her drive.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) January 15, 2016
