Top Gear presenter, Jeremy Clarkson has apologised for an offensive picture tweeted from his Twitter account.
Clarkson, 53, was photographed next to a handwritten sign saying “gay cunt” while he appeared to be asleep on an early flight to Scotland yesterday morning. His Top Gear co-host James May also appears in the picture, smiling in the background.
Clarkson tweeted the picture with the caption, “Sadly, I fell asleep on the plane.” The image has since been removed from his account.
Last night, Clarkson took to his Twitter account to apologise for the offensive image.
I have deleted my last tweet and would like to apologise profusely to anyone who I upset while I was asleep.

This is not the first time that Clarkson offended gay people. George Michael once claimed that Clarkson was homophobic after he allegedly made an offensive comment about the singer during a segment on Top Gear.
