London, May 01: Under-fire Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has reportedly sparked a new racism row after being caught on camera using the ‘n-word’ while shooting for his show.
The TV host has reportedly been captured in the unseen footage, which got edited out of the show later, swinging his finger between two cars and reciting a racist version of a children’s counting rhyme.
According to the Mirror, Clarkson can be heard singing ‘Eeny, meeny, miny, moe’ in the unseen footage, which has come out not long after the Top Gear presenter had been accused of using ‘slope’ while filming in Thailand for the flagship BBC car show, and then the TV host mutters ‘catch a n*****’ by his toe’.
Legal experts have said that the Clarkson’s recent language use could even result in a breach of the law in some cases.
Clarkson had been filming for Series 19 Episode 3 when he used the n-word in the phrase, with the start of the show featuring a segment where he had been test driving the 25,000-pound Toyota GT86 and the similarly priced Subaru BRZ.
The outspoken star took both cars for a spin around the famous Top Gear racetrack and while delivering a review of how they performed, Clarkson went on to recite the rhyme before declaring Toyota as the better one out of the two cars, the report added. (ANI)
