Ricky Gervais doubles down on Caitlyn Jenner with more bad driver jokes

Ricky Gervais defends his Caitlyn Jenner jokes from the Golden Globes

Comic Ricky Gervais is once again going after Caitlyn Jenner with bad driver jokes after the reality star suggested this week that she replace Gervais as Golden Globe Awards host.

‘Please, please, please let her host The @goldenglobes,’ Gervais tweeted. ‘Just don’t let her drive.’

Jenner was asked during this week’s TV Critics Association Press Tour about Gervais taking aim at her during his opening monologue at the Globes last Sunday.

Gervais had said of Jenner: ‘What a year she’d 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.’

Gervais was referring to Jenner’s involvement last year in a car accident in Malibu that resulted in the death of a woman.

During a session promoting season two of her reality show I Am Cait on Thursday (14 January) Jenner had said: ‘I think what I’m going to do is call the Golden Globes and see if they need a new host for next year and we will solve that problem.’

Gervais also reacted to the Entertainment Weekly headline ‘Caitlyn Jenner breaks her silence on Ricky Gervais’ by tweeting: ‘At last. She always brakes too late.’
