David Bowie may have been the first, but a lot of people are calling Ricky Gervais “pug-nosed,” and much more, for comments he made during the Golden Globes. The not-Amy-Poehler-and-Tina-Fey host joked, “I’ve changed. Not as much as Bruce Jenner, 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?”

The response to Gervais’ alleged transphobia was not kind.
