Jeremy Clarkson Says He's Not Homophobic Because He Watches Lesbian Porn

In response to criticism of a segment on the Amazon Prime show, the broadcaster claimed that he is not homophobic as he enjoys 'watching lesbians on the internet'.

Last week saw singer Will Young criticise Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond for an episode of The Grand Tour in which they mock and stereotype gay men.

The singer called out both Amazon Prime and the cast for a segment on their series in which they test drive a Jeep with a pink roof. Commenting on the car, James May said: “Isn’t that a very popular car with the gay community?”

Clarkson responded with “What is it, lesbian, bacon, transgender?”

Later, Hammond suggests Clarkson wear “some nice chaps, suede, but ventilated in the back”. They play ‘It’s Raining Men’ from the stereo, and Clarkson later claims that the car is typically bought by “people who like cruising the streets of San Francisco and Key West and Brighton and Sydney”.

In response, Will Young called the cast out for stereotyping the LGBT+ community on Twitter:

“Screw them and the show and Amazon for putting this shaming archaic tripe out. It’s insulting and they can’t just rest on laurels of ‘oh we are just politically incorrect’. It’s sad and shaming, bigoted and for fuck’s sake grow up.”

Clarkson responded to Will Young in his column in The Sun, in which he refutes the suggestion that he is complicit in homophobia:

“Many gay people who’d seen the show said they couldn’t see a problem. None of my leftie friends could either. One even said I should tell him to stop being so gay.”

“I won’t do that though. And nor will I suggest that mobile phones should be fitted with breathalysers to stop people from drinking and tweeting.”

Clarkson continued:

“No. Instead I will apologise to Will for causing him some upset and reassure him that I know I’m not homophobic as I very much enjoy watching lesbians on the internet.”
