Jeremy Clarkson's own daughter slams him after his Meghan Markle comments
| Last updated
Jeremy Clarkson has been torn to shreds for his column in The Sun, revealing that he dreams of Meghan Markle being 'paraded naked through the streets' as people throw 'lumps of excrement' at her.
All you need to complete the picture is that awful Septa Unella from Game of Thrones.
Speaking about Prince Harry, Clarkson wrote: "I actually feel rather sorry for him because today he’s just a glove puppet with no more control over what he says or does than Basil Brush."
He added: "At night, I’m unable to sleep as I lie there, grinding my teeth and dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowds chant, 'Shame!' and throw lumps of excrement at her."
The column sparked widespread condemnation, and now the former Top Gear host's own daughter has spoken out about his comments.
Emily Clarkson took to Instagram on December 18, writing: "My views are and have always been clear when it comes to misogyny, bullying and the treatment of women by the media.
"I want to make it very clear that I stand against everything that my dad wrote about Meghan Markle and I remain standing in support of those that are targeted with online hatred."
Since the column dropped on Friday (16 December), people have taken to social media to slam the journalist - especially for that line.
That includes political commentator and former Labour Party advisor Ayesha Hazarika, who wrote on Twitter: "Many of us this week are reflecting on how misogyny has infected society and why violence against women is at such a frightening level.
"Wonder where these fantasies of hating and wanting to physically punish women come from?"
Writer Omid Scobie, whose work focuses on the British royal family, wrote: "That would be the same Jeremy Clarkson who was at a private Christmas party with Camilla, the Queen Consort earlier this week (alongside guests including a Daily Mail editor and Piers Morgan)."
Psychologist and author Dr Jessica Taylor added: "I am absolutely horrified by this comment about Meghan Markle by Jeremy Clarkson. The hatred. The obsession. The mention of her naked. This proves everything M&H are saying.
"Absolutely jaw-dropping, terrifying misogyny and abuse here from Clarkson."
