Ricky Gervais Defends Caitlyn Jenner Joke at Golden Globes 2016 - Read the Tweets

Ricky Gervais is firing back at critics over his Caitlyn Jenner joke at the 2016 Golden Globes.

“I’m going to be nice tonight. I’ve changed – not as much as Bruce Jenner. Obviously. Now Caitlyn Jenner, of course,” Ricky said in his joke on Sunday evening. “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? Not at the same time.”

When Ricky realized his joke sparked a lot of outrage, he tweeted, “Suggesting a joke about Caitlin Jenner is automatically transphobic is like suggesting a joke about Bill Cosby is automatically racist.”
