Jeremy Clarkson isn’t exactly a stranger to controversy, so it’ll come as no surprise that he’s caused mass outrage for his latest stunt on The Grand Tour.
This time, the former Top Gear presenter opened up an Audi TT to reveal Richard Hammond bound to the innards of the car, beneath the back bumper.
The scene resulted in laughter from the studio audience but sparked widespread criticism as Clarkson joked it was a ‘better way for immigrants of getting into Britain’, reported The Express.
When immigrants try to get into the country they always come in the back of a container lorry that is the world’s worst game of hide and seek.
If you work for Border Force you open the doors and go, ‘well there you are.’
Surely there must be a better way of getting into Britain.
And I’ve worked it out.
Some viewers slammed it as ‘irresponsible’ and deemed it their most ‘controversial’ episode yet.
Babara Drozdowicz, from the East European Resource Centre said:
We are appalled by the portrayal of migrants as an illegal cargo.
Kate Gibbs from the Road Haulage Association said:
To demonstrate what is, in effect, little more than a ‘how to guide’ is just irresponsible.
That perhaps wasn’t the outcome they were hoping for then…
