Groups of intolerant people, and the Daily Mail, were quick to notice that the new Top Gear presenters are not all white middle-aged opinionated men.
Many expressed their concern that the show would not be the same, with these new “presenters” and they would no longer be watching. The majority of the British public agreed with this, and expressed their gratitude to the BBC, for finally updating the tired predictable format.
Stopped by the Police
Foaming racist Bradley Hewitt, from Eastbourne angrily grunted , “There is a black guy presenting it. It’s political correctness what’s done it! Bring back Clarkson, he was funny,” before finally quipping, “I bet they can’t even get through a take without him getting stopped by the police.”
Sexist Freddie Falcone, was equally stereotypical in his comments. “I bet their insurance premium has gone through the roof now they have a woman driving”, he snorted.
A number of homophobes were, however, left disappointed that they were unable to join in the foray as none of the presenters, as yet, appear to be openly gay. However, one sloping head Neanderthal, Barry Aucoin tweeted “I bet the Stig is a bender #bender #stig”, before liking a number of posts from @BritianFirst.
Meanwhile, many other bigots took to twitter and began mashing their keyboards in outrage, producing mindless gibberish which was subsequently lifted for an article in the Daily Mail. Who, we must point out, in the interest of balance, were merely reflecting the viewpoint of some members of society.
A spokesman from the BBC defended the decision of the presenter line-up. “Top Gear is watched by a cross-section of society and the presenting team needs to reflect that. However the main reason we did this was to annoy the likes of Katie Hopkins and Richard Littlejohn from the Daily Mail. I’m sure their twisted take on the subject will be a feature of one of their “columns” in the near future!”
