Jeremy Clarkson Accused Of Homophobia Following Backlash To Offensive Tweet

He is in Australia with Richard Hammond and James May.

Jeremy Clarkson is under fire again after sending a controversial tweet while in Australia.

The former Top Gear host shared an image of he and Richard Hammond outside Margaret River Fudge Factory with the caption: ‘We have got jobs at last. Here. As packers’.

The joke has been taken as a gay slur, with several of Clarkson’s followers immediately hitting back and calling him a homophobe.

This isn’t the first time that the presenter has riled the gay community, having previously apologised for posting a selfie in which he called himself a ‘gay c**t’.

The 55-year-old is currently touring in Australia as part of the Clarkson, Hammond and May Live tour, which was due to be called Top Gear Live prior to Clarkson’s termination from the show.
