Jeremy Clarkson Under Fire For Racist N-Word Comments
Another day, another racist out of pocket azzhole.
According to Mirror UK:
Under fire Jeremy Clarkson last night sparked a new racism row after he was caught using the n-word while filming for Top Gear. In the unseen footage – which was later edited out of the show – the £1million a year TV host is seen swinging his finger between two cars, while reciting a racist version of a children’s counting rhyme.
Clarkson can be heard chanting: “Eeny, meeny, miny, moe…” He then mumbles: “Catch a n***** by his toe”. The shocking footage comes not long after Clarkson was involved in another offensive outburst, when he was accused of using the term “slope” while filming in Thailand for the flagship BBC car show.
This morning the TV presenter denied using the n-word and said he has “never” used it. Last night, legal experts said that the recent language used by the 54-year-old, who last year reportedly took home £14million thanks largely to his stake in a firm which exploits Top Gear’s global brand, could even result in a breach of the law in some cases. Solicitor Lucy Scott Moncrieff said: “It is all about context. If there was a crew member who was distressed by it, then there could well have been a breach of equality legislation.”
Fellow lawyer Lawrence Davies blasted: “Clarkson has to be sacked, no matter how much money he makes for the BBC. Use of that word is not acceptable.” The Mirror hired a firm of audio forensic experts to analyse the clip and they confirmed that the n-word was indeed used by Clarkson.
And this isn’t the first timmmeeeeeeee for Jeremy, either.
Clarkson has courted controversy before. He was once accused of using the term “slope” when filming in Thailand. Last week, Twitter called him out for naming his black dog Didier Dogba, after the Ivory Coast footballer Didier Drogba, a former star with Chelsea.
And it’s not always because of something rooted in racism: Clarkson’s big mouth has drawn flak for calling Prime Minister Gordon Brown a “one-eyed Scottish idiot,” and he once gave a Nazi salute while presenting a “Top Gear” piece on Germany’s BMW. Those are just a few examples.
