    For gods sake people !! He's BEGGING for forgiveness.





    http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/02/world/europe/uk-jeremy-clarkson-racism-row/

    (CNN) -- BBC TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson has asked forgiveness for using a racist term during a taping of his show "Top Gear," after Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper brought a media storm by posting the footage online.
    Clarkson mumbled the n-word while reciting the children's nursery rhyme "eeny, meeny, miny, moe" to choose between two cars. That version of the take was never aired.
    Clarkson posted an online explanation Thursday in which he said he was "begging for forgiveness" -- and argued that he had done everything he could to avoid using the word.
    "Ordinarily, I don't respond to newspaper allegations, but on this occasion, I feel I must make an exception," he said.

    Clarkson said that in filming the section a couple of years ago, he was very keen to avoid using the offensive term in a version of the nursery rhyme and mumbled it on two takes before replacing it with the word "teacher" on a third.
    "When I viewed this footage several weeks later, I realized that in one of the versions, if I listened very carefully with the sound turned right up, that I had actually used the word I was trying to obscure," he said.
    "I was mortified by this, horrified. It's a word I loathe, and I did everything in my power to make sure that that version did not appear in the program."
    This included contacting the production office to ensure that another take was used in the show, he said.
    Clarkson initially denied the report by the Mirror, tweeting, "I did not use the n word. Never use it. The Mirror has gone way too far this time."
    But after the newspaper posted the footage in question online and amid calls from some quarters for his resignation, the presenter was forced to backtrack. He posted his video message less than 12 hours after his initial denial.
    A BBC statement said, "Jeremy Clarkson has set out the background to this regrettable episode. We have made it absolutely clear to him, the standards the BBC expects on air and off. We have left him in no doubt about how seriously we view this."
    "Top Gear" airs in a number of countries worldwide, including the United States

    I keep thinking he is playing the media on this one. I can't figure it out.

    He's the best television personality ever. Period.
    This better not fuck up Top Gear somehow. Besides...those are the real words to that. "Tiger" was the replacement word.

    I have become hooked on Top Gear this past month. This fake rage over this story is silly. The clip never was on air and was for a 2013 show. All this PC speech BS is seriously pissing me off.

    Exactly why I don't watch the show. It has its moments and decent segments, but they "invent" fake situations to try and confirm Clarkson's various bigoted attitudes towards just about everything besides himself.
    Pull into a redneck gas station in the middle of nowhere, stand around for a while with cameras pointed at yourself and your vehicle painted to get a reaction, wait around long enough for someone to finally notice and care, then portray that as the entire town coming out to kill you because of it, letting your viewers think the entire state of Alabama is like that. Add in travel on the interstate without contacting the state patrol who would be there in minutes, pretending you have to frantically clean up and flee to save your lives. Then edit out the 14 hours of videtape you have of people doing nothing and declare "people have started to mate with vegetables".


    It might be a decent show if it was ever actually about cars and not mugging for the camera and various other sorts of bullshit passed off as "reality".

    It sucks Fifth Gear's balls. The cast of which were in the original Top Gear. Let's see Clarkson do this.

    The best is at 4:25, but the rest of the segment is funny

    Meanwhile Quentin Tarantino is finishing up another movie where the "N" word will be thrown around 5-10 times in every minute of dialog by big name actors, and then critics and media will fawn over him, lick his ass, and shower him with awards once again. :coffee:[h=3][/h]

    Beach ball would be a better analogy, and someone let the air out.
