Gervais joked on Sunday night that Jenner had done so much for the trans community but not "a lot for women drivers," referring to the fatal crash Jenner was involved in last year, where the former Olympian was not charged with any crimes.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Jenner, 66, responded by saying, "On Ricky, 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.”
For his part, Gervais defended the joke earlier this week, tweeting, "Suggesting a joke about Caitlin Jenner is automatically transphobic is like suggesting a joke about Bill Cosby is automatically racist."
Jenner was promoting season 2 of "I Am Cait" at the press tour and a new trailer revealed what's to come when the show returns in March.
Caitlyn's ex Kris Jenner is featured, along with Kim Kardashian West. There's one scene where Caitlyn gets emotional when her new ID card arrives. To her, it finalizes the transition from Bruce to Cait.
"Sometimes I feel like I've thrown old Bruce out the door," she says. "Maybe he didn't deserve to be gone."
As for Caitlyn's love life, she made a big declaration in the trailer.
"To be honest with you, I don't see [myself] dating women in the future," she reveals. "I've been there, done that. Got three ex-wives."
