Clarkson sparks Twitter row

2011-07-20 09:11

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.

    Whether you agree with homosexuality or not, I'm sure most will agree that George Michael is a creepy man... and with GM attacking Sir Jeremy, he can expect a barrage of jokes about being slumped behind the wheel, high on drugs...

    George Michael is starting to freak me out. He’s ranting on twitter about a silly joke JC made about his sexuality yet he openly express his desires in public toilets. I think George wants JC to pay him a visit. So that Jeremy can put his Jaguar XKR in his backroom.
