Ricky Gervais Not Sorry About 'Automatic' Caitlyn Jenner Joke In Golden Globes 2016
Ricky Gervais's joke at the Golden Globe Awards 2016 on Sunday, expectedly, reaped backlash in social media why he is targeting Caitlyn Jenner during a very grand awards night.
"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," he said in the opening of the awards night as mentioned in People.
He went on further alluding to the reality TV star's car accident in February 2015 saying she showed "great bravery...She didn't do a lot for women drivers, but you can't have everything."
In a series of tweets, the British comedian never gave any apologies for his joke. Rather he mocked people who got offended with it.
"In the future, everyone will be offended by me for 15 minutes. "
"You have every right to be offended. Just don't cry when no one cares."
Aside from the former Olympian, Gervais also targeted Matt Damon and Mel Gibson in his jokes-both actors were at that event.
Despite promising 'being nice,' he digs at Mel Gibson who made headlines with his 2006 DUI arrest by making an aside saying ''What the f*** does sugart**s even mean?' when the Australian actor got up on stage to introduce clips of Mad Max Fury Road, Daily Mail said.
Gervais is bringing up Gibson's then-words at a police officer who caught him. "What do you think you're looking at, sugart**ts?" the Braveheart actor reportedly said that time.
In an earlier post, Ricky Gervais admitted that he missed being a stand-up comedian, said to be his 'first love,' according to Contact Music.
Hosting The Globes has made me want to do a new stand up show next year. Now THAT'S when you're allowed to be offended. You whiney c****.'
