He's said much worse in the past and no one really made a big deal, hence why it seems out of proportion now.

It was inappropriate and just more of the same in regards to Jeremy Clarkson and his enthusiasm to advertise his ignorance. I love the show and think he is great for it, but a spade is a spade and he has repeatedly made offensive remarks about minority populations.

I'm taking odds on how soon this thread gets closed. Any takers?

Completely blown out of proportion. More important things in the world to worry about instead of a British man mumbling a word.

Who else takes a word that's used excusively by their race, and calls it racist if another race uses the same word? Isn't that in itself racism?

That Jezza... he's such a cracker

What's funny is you go to anywhere teenagers of all races are gathered and they all use the N word (and worse) talking back and forth and nobody seems to care... It makes me sick hearing the language kids are using. I wonder where they learn it from.

He did not say the word that he is accused of saying. He mumbled the line because he intentionally did NOT want to say that word (since apparently in the UK it's normal for it to be used in place of tiger) and has released a statement stating such.

Here's what I don't get. He accidentally slips and says one word that is extremely common on an unaired version of the show and the world is up in arms but yet almost every episode he purposely goes on air and insults America and other racial minorities and no one says or does anything.
