DailyMail- During his opening monologue on Sunday, Gervais did his spin on a typical 'women drivers' wisecrack.
'What a year she's had,' the controversial comic said onstage the Beverly Hilton.
'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 you? Not at the same time.'
The ESPY Award winner reacted to Ricky during Thursday's Winter TCA event by saying: 'I'm going to call the Golden Globes and ask if they need a new host for next year.'
Listen, I love a "woman can't drive" joke - about a person that literally killed someone driving as she was in the process of deciding to be a woman - just as much as anyone else, but this simply isn't a fair fight. I agree that that vehicular homicide probably got swept under the rug a litttttle too quickly as well, but this is just hard to watch. Caitlyn is a lady Ricky. That means that she deserves to be treated with respect. That also means she's probably about as quick as an 85 year old man with erectile dysfunction. Leave the girl alone, she doesn't have the resources to stay afloat in this battle of wits. This is like the comedic version of what I would imagine a Floyd Mayweather Vs. Ronda Rousey matchup to look like if Ronda Rousey had never, ever thrown a punch in her entire life. Toss in the towel Caitlyn. You have nothing else to prove, and even if you did you don't have the comedic wherewithal to do it. Just do that thing all women do when they can't think of a clever response and furrow your brow like you just got a whiff of a Men's public bathroom. Act like you are taking the high road and everyone will just assume you won by being the better person. Take my advice and just stop, because I think we all have seen what your failure to do so in the past has resulted in.
