Ricky Gervais might not be everyone's cup of tea, but he most certainly is mine.

He isn't afraid to go after any celebrity, and he outwardly says exactly what most of us are thinking. I am also a fan of his Facebook feed, as it is filled with horrific double-chin selfies and posts about animal rights and current events.

The cherry on top? He makes his points brilliantly using his wit and humor.

Most recently, Gervais took to Twitter to explain just how sensitive people have become to jokes. It seems that people tend to find anything offensive to the point where if you say your favorite color blue, people will call you a "colorist" and ask what's wrong with purple, green, and yellow.

Ricky Gervais's latest target? Caitlyn Jenner.

During this year's Golden Globes, Gervais started the night off with a jab at Caitlyn Jenner, specifically bringing up Jenner's tragic car crash that occurred while she was supposedly fleeing from paparazzi. She collided with another vehicle, thrusting it into oncoming traffic and killing the driver.

During a panel discussion for Season 2 of her E! show I Am Cait, Caitlyn had this to say:

"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."

With which Gervais responded:


"At last. She always brakes too late."

While many deem Gervais's comments transphobic, he would have to disagree:

My two cents? I don't find Gervais to be transphobic, but perhaps his jokes about female drivers being terrible is rather sexist.

I find his comebacks to Jenner incredibly hilarious and impressive, but come on Gervais! Bad female drivers has been done before. Hit us with something new.

Besides, no one does a bad Caitlyn Jenner driving joke better than South Park:
