Jeremy Clarkson A Racist ~ DUH!


The BBC says it has left Jeremy Clarkson “in no doubt about how seriously” it takes allegations he used racist language while filming Top Gear.

Clarkson has apologised and asked for forgiveness after a clip of him reciting the nursery rhyme Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe was published by the Mirror.

Although he mumbles the offending word, the presenter clearly begins by saying the letter “n”.

Is *anyone* surprised by this? This is the man who said striking workers should be shot, after all.


It is not the first time the Top Gear presenter has been accused of racism.

The BBC apologised in 2011, after an episode in which co-presenter Richard Hammond called Mexicans “feckless [and] flatulent” and Clarkson joked they would not receive complaints because the Mexican ambassador would be asleep.

Apologies were also made for an episode broadcast in March, in which Clarkson used the word “slope” as an Asian man crossed a newly built bridge over the River Kwai in Thailand.

The use of the word – which is a derogatory term for people of Asian descent – led to complaints and the threat of legal action from Equal Justice, a law firm specialising in discrimination cases.

But I think Stewart Lee said it all, really:

Top Gear is just the Daily Mail for the telly. Racist, sexist shit that only people who are racist and sexist themselves can forgive.
