Jeremy Clarkson Causes Twitter Uproar With ‘Homophobic’ Tweet

Former presenter of BBC’s automotive show Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson is in trouble again, this time for making what social media users deemed a homophobic slur on Twitter.

The tweet said he and ex co-presenter on Top Gear, Richard Hammond, have bagged themselves new jobs.

Clarkson snapped a pic of the duo posing outside the Margaret River Fudge Factory. Clarkson’s tweet read: “We have got jobs at last. Here. As Packers.”

Twitter users speedily jumped on the platform to chastise Clarkson. At last check the tweet had been retweeted more than 24,000 times.

Not everyone was offended by the tweet though.

And many were just as offended by Hammond’s facial hair.

Clarkson made headlines early this year after getting into a “fracas” with a BBC producer which effectively saw his booting from the popular automotive show.

The BBC have been on the hunt for new presenters once it had been revealed Clarkson’s co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May wouldn’t renew their contracts with the broadcaster.

The first official new presenter is comedian Chris Evans, with two more expected to be announced.
