Touche! Caitlyn Jenner has zero time for haters. The transgender reality star responded to Ricky Gervais’ Golden Globes diss during the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour on Thursday, January 14, in Pasadena, California.

In case you missed it, Gervais’ opening monologue on Sunday, January 10, was quite controversial.

“I’m going to be nice tonight. I’ve changed — not as much as Bruce Jenner,” the awards show host told the audience during the live telecast. “Obviously. Now Caitlyn Jenner, of course … What a year she’s had! 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 ya? Not at the same time.”

Gervais, of course, was referring to Jenner’s February 2015 car accident that left one person dead. Jenner’s crash has also been repeatedly spoofed on season 19 of South Park.

During the TCA panel for season 2 of her documentary series, I Am Cait, Jenner laughed off the diss.

"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," the former Olympic gold medalist quipped to reporters when asked about the comedian’s comments.

I Am Cait returns to E! this March.
