Is he ever gonna grow up? Probably never. He was the reason why I've enjoyed watching Top Gear all these years, and now he mutters the worst possible word ever. He is losing a lot of respect for these kind of things.

If he ever gets fired it's going to be another Duck Dynasty thing, He'll get fired for a couple weeks and the fan rage will bring him back.

Pretty much this. There's not a single episode in Top Gear where they DON'T say something offensive no matter what topic they're discussing.

That doesn't give him a free pass.

Of course, for better and for worse, if he wasn't such a publicly visible figure, nobody would care.

Ideally, there wouldn't be any racist/sexist/homophobes/transphobes/et al in society, but of course, that isn't possible. Silencing the most audible offenders is a start, though.

Also, before any one claims otherwise, I have no issue with free speech. I do have issues with remarks that are simply offensive, however.

The most important part of this is that we need to remember that this isn't all there is to Clarkson's personality (and to other people's, for that matter), and that he's a human, just the same as everyone else.

...I apologize for rambling.

Wait...all this because he implied the word in a nursery rhyme in between takes?

The initial claim was that he audibly said it. The response was that he mumbled over it in an attempt to not say it.

It's weird.

Reported by the Daily Mirror, who happens to be the former employer of....Piers Morgan.

Read into that what you will.

Ignore the fact Piers Morgan once worked there, the Daily Mirror usually spews out utter shite in the attempt at drawing in an audience. Not as bad as, say, the Express or, dare I say it, the Daily Sport (fuck knows who reads that).
