The ex-Top Gear presenter really went too far!
Jeremy Clarkson it has always mattered what people think of him. He stood and stands for hearty sayings below the waistline. That’s his trademark. But now he could have finally overdone it – there was no reaction from his employer Amazon Prime Video.
What happened? In his column for the British “Sun” he has made Duchess Meghan Markle. trigger should be the Netflix documentaryin which Meghan and Prince Harry settle accounts with the British press, among other things.
Which, in turn, apparently led to Clarkson’s reckoning: “I hate her. Not like I hate Nicola Sturgeon (the Scottish Prime Minister) or Rose West (a serial killer). I hate her on a cellular level,” he wrote, for example.
“Throw clods of excrement at you”
He continued: “At night I can’t sleep as I lie there grinding my teeth and dreaming of the day when she will be forced to parade naked through the streets of every city in Britain while the crowd chants ‘Shame!’ chanted. And throw clumps of excrement at them.”
Meghan has “obviously used some lively bedroom promises” to turn daredevil Harry into a bore. “And now she seems to have stuck her arm far enough up his butt that she can manipulate his facial expressions with her fingers. Actually, he does to me sorry because now he’s just a hand puppet who no longer has control over what he says or does. Everyone my age thinks the same thing,” Clarkson pointed out.
Clarkson backtracked on Twitter
Meanwhile, the moderator rowed back a bit via Twitter, writing that he was “appalled to have caused so much pain”. He “awkwardly” referred to a scene from the TV series Game of Thrones, “and that went down badly with a lot of people.” He will be more careful in the future. That wasn’t an excuse, though.
According to the PA news agency, the British press council Independent Press Standard Organization (Ipso) received more complaints about ONE article than about all texts in the whole of last year. The column is no longer on the Sun site.
