Jeremy Clarkson Claims He's Not Homophobic As He Enjoys ‘Watching Lesbians On The Internet’

Jeremy Clarkson Claims He's Not Homophobic As He Enjoys ‘Watching Lesbians On The Internet’

Jeremy Clarkson's gone and said something controversial again - QUELLE SURPRISE - having responded to backlash to an episode of The Grand Tour by saying he can't be homophobic, as he enjoys 'watching lesbians on the internet'.

Er, not sure that's how it works, mate.

It all began when singer Will Young tweeted about a 'homophobic' scene in The Grand Tour, which Clarkson hosts alongside former Top Gear bros James May and Richard Hammond.

"It's fucking pathetic and actually homophobic," Young wrote, adding in a later tweet: "It's insulting and they can't rest on laurels of 'Oh we are just politically incorrect'. It's sad and shaming, bigoted and for fuck's sake grow up. How dare they stereotype gay men."

Clarkson has now issued what he calls an 'apology' in his column for The Sun, where he wrote: "Many gay people who'd seen the show said they couldn't see a problem. None of my leftie friends could either. One even said I should tell him to stop being so gay.

"I won't do that though. And nor will I suggest, once again, that mobile phones should be fitted with breathalysers to stop people drinking and tweeting."

Clarkson added: "No. Instead, I will apologise to Will for causing him some upset and reassure him that I know I'm not homophobic as I very much enjoy watching lesbians on the internet."

In a series of tweets, Young had called out Clarkson and co. after watching an episode of The Grand Tour that featured 'homophobic' jokes about a Wrangler Jeep being a gay man's car and 'quips' about wearing chaps and pink shirts.

"It's fucking pathetic and actually homophobic," Young wrote.

"I DON'T drive a Wrangler Jeep. I DON'T wear pink shirts. I DON'T wear arseless chaps. You can be honest and funny without this ridiculous 'lad' ooh being gay and let's laugh about it mentality. It's repulsive and how DARE you do it and put it out @PrimeVideo."

Young - who appeared in an episode of Clarkson's other motoring programme, Top Gear, back in 2008 - continued: "It's insulting and they can't rest on laurels of 'oh we are just politically incorrect'. It's sad and shaming, bigoted and for fuck's sake grow up. How dare they stereotype gay men."

He added: "Enough is enough. I'm pissed and fed up. I want Amazonprime and the producers of Grand Tour to meet young LGBT who want to kill themselves because of shaming and laughter and normalising of shaming homophobic narratives."

LADbible has contacted Amazon Prime for comment.
