Apparently Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame has found himself in another bit of hot water, whatever the fuck that phrase even means anymore, after comments he made on the shows recent special that found the trio travelling to India.
The Guardian, which devoted a lengthy article to the news, said Jeremy “made a string of jokes about Indian food, clothes, toilets, trains, and even the country’s history.”
The show was watched by 5 million people when it aired Wednesday night. Jeremy’s comments (which were so bad apparently that British tabloid “The Daily Star” plastered it on their front page and had a double-page spread about it on Friday) garnered 23 complaints to the BBC.
In the comments section of the Guardian’s article, one reader noted:
Surely this headline should have read… Top Gear Xmas Episode watched by 5 million people 0.00046% of viewers complain.
In other words the same percentage of the world population who get offended by the use of the word toast when presented with warmed bread.
Makes one wonder why anyone gets offended by what Jeremy says anymore.
