The 2016 Golden Globes is Ricky Gervais' fourth time hosting the event. The comedian is know for using the awards show to skewer Hollywood's elite. In his opening monologue Sunday, Gervais took aim at the past year's biggest and most controversial target for comedy — Caitlyn Jenner.
At first, Gervais compared the transgender celebrity's much-publicized transition to the softening of his own often mean-spirited sense of humor.
"I'll be nice," promised Gervais. "I've changed, but not as much as Bruce Jenner."
After paying Jenner some compliments for her very public, inspirational transition, the comedian took a shot at her recent legal issues.
"She didn't do a lot for women drivers," Gervais added.
In February 2015, Jenner was involved in a car accident near her Malibu home that left a woman dead. In September, the Los Angeles County district attorney decided not to charge Jenner with manslaughter in the case.
The joke was met with some angry reactions from fans on Twitter, but that is par for the course with Gervais at the Golden Globes.
