Top Gear Presenters Accused of Racism. World Acts Surprised

The Mexican Ambassador in London has complained about a recent episode of Top Gear , where its mouldering, corpulent presenters, likened a Mexican sports car to some negative stereotypes of his country. 

Not surprisingly the Mexican Ambassador was not amused and lodged a formal complaint with the BBC.     The BBC showed its contrition by reproducing the insults verbatim on their website.

Clarkson said he was confident he would not receive any complaints about their comments because the Mexican ambassador would be asleep.

He was, is and always will be all sorts of wrong.

Here is what's in the article mkay?

Reviewing the Mastretta on Sunday's show, Hammond said: "Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat."

The presenters, known for their edgy jibes, then described Mexican food as "refried sick".

Clarkson said he was confident he would not receive any complaints about their comments because the Mexican ambassador would be asleep.

However, the ambassador did complain, and demanded an apology from the BBC.
