Kaley Cuoco poked a little fun at the recent trouble she found herself in after she was quoted as saying she wasn't a feminist in Redbook magazine.

At Wednesday night's People's Choice Awards, Cuoco mocked her ordeal while on stage with her "The Wedding Ringer" co-stars, Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, to present an award.

"Can we just show the nominees, please, for Favorite Comedic Movie Actress?" Cuoco pleaded with Hart and Gad, who were joking around.

"Ooh, now Kaley, are you sure you want to do that category given your anti-feminism stance?" Gad asked.

"Yeah, I have to, it's part of my apology tour," Cuoco joked.

The "Big Bang Theory" star faced a backlash after she was asked about her feminist stance in the latest Redbook.

"Is it bad if I say no? It's not really something I think about," she told the magazine. "Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around… I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality."

Days later, Cuoco took to Instagram to apologize and clarify her comments.

"In my Redbook article, some people have taken offense to my comments regarding feminism," she wrote. "If any of you are in the 'biz' you are well aware of how words can be taken out of context.

"I'm completely blessed and grateful that strong women have paved the way for my success along with many others. I apologize if anyone was offended," said the 29-year-old actress, who recently inked a $1 million-per-episode contract with CBS. "Anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant."
