Default The 10 most offensive mistakes that got Top Gear in trouble


10. Suggesting that babies should ride with luggage on airplane flights



9. Writing inflammatory statements with spray paint on beater cars in the Southern US


8. Testing the Tesla Roadster with a scripted and fake scene of it running out of power


7. Calling people who commit suicide by jumping under trains "selfish"


6. Mocking Indian culture, disguising themselves as women, and replacing Jesus with The Stig and the Three Wise Men with themselves in holiday special shows


5. Saying, "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"



4. Filming a fake VW commercial that jokes about the Germans invading Poland in World War II


3. Suggesting that striking workers in Great Britain be executed in front of their families


2. Using the term "slope" to refer to Asians, then issuing a questionable apology


1. Did he or didn't he use the N-word?

I'll read Clarkson's car reviews (since I do reviews myself)....but I separate myself from the rest of his rantings.

this is what happens when you have too much time on your hands and allow yourself to read way too much into things

The hell with being PC. The people complaining are probably the same people who blames McDonald's cause they're fat

We need to stop worrying about if other people are offensive.

The world is NOT preschool. People are going to hurt your feelings. Get over it.

Boy the PC police are trying to justify their paychecks again. Who in this world hasn't made a remark like any of the above - especially if you're of the dyspeptic curmudgeonly sort? Clarkson's humor is as black . . . well, wait, we won't go there either.

Not sure who is worse..

1. PC Police
2. People overreacting and exaggerating about the PC Police...
