TWITTER RANT: George Michael rants on his Twitter account following a quip made by Jeremy Clarkson.

Jeremy Clarkson regularly finds himself in the hot seat due to his risque remarks, this time however he seems to have angered a singer.

A feud has apparently been sparked between Top Gear star Jeremy Clarkson and singer George Michael.


The Top Gear star made a joke at Michael's expense while reviewing a Jaguar XKR-S.

Clarkson compared the handling of the sportscar to Michael's sexual habits stating that, "It’s very fast and very, very loud. And then in the corners it will get its tail out more readily than George Michael."

Clarkson's comment followed a campaign by Michael on Twitter calling for Top Gear to be made more "camp" even referring to the show as "Top Queer".

ANGRY TWEETS: Some of the tweets posted by George Michael slam Jeremy Clarkson as being homophobic.

Following Clarkson's risqué quip Michael began ranting on Twitter.

He tweeted, "Good grief Mr.Clarkson, I wasn't implying your towering heterosexuality was in question. I had no desire to insult you!

"But I do now, you pig-ugly homophobic tw*t!"

Michael had posted a video of a bright pink Bentley and while commenting on the vehicle wrote, "I swear this is real. And I sound like Jeremy Clarkson with someone's finger up his arse!"

Clarkson has not replied to the singer.
