Is Gervais Really "Transphobic"?

It’s difficult to be a successful standup comedian and refrain from offending everyone all the time — especially in our current social clime of extreme sensitivity. Ricky Gervais however, has proven himself to be an unrelenting, unwavering beacon of comedy, even when he gets flack for the subject matter of his jokes.

Most recently at the Golden Globes Gervais made a few cracks at Caitlyn Jenner’s expense, and it didn’t take long until the internet was up in arms. So were the jokes fair game?

Or did Ricky go too far?
