Top Gear Hosts Are Straight Up Racist


This just pissed us off. During the most recent broadcast of Top Gear, the very popular British show about cars, hosts Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson, and James May made some blatant xenophobic comments about Mexicans. The three Brits were discussing a new car from the Latin American country when all of a sudden it became open mic night at the local KKK clubhouse.

Watch the offending clip below:

We rarely call people “racist.” Well, that’s not true. We sometimes call our friends racists for the LULz. BUT, we rarely call people “racist” and mean it. This is one of those times. We don’t even know where to begin with this. Part of us wants to retaliate and just fling every single negative stereotype about the English at their stupid, tea-drinking, soccer-rioting, incest-loving, rotted-teeth-having faces (see what we did there?). We won’t, though. We’re above that crap. So, instead, we’re just going to point out the most blatant ignorant inaccuracy in this clip: Mexicans don’t know food.

This is just infuriating. We don’t know food? Really? Why don’t you call our mother a whore? That would be less insulting! Never mind that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) named Mexican cuisine a cultural treasure. Forget all that! Because if it’s not a hearty plate of vomit (seriously, guys? Gruel) with a side of bacon, it ain’t food!

On a separate note, Top Gear guys, feel free to knock the Mastretta MXT(the car you so hilariously called “The Tortilla”), but know that it’s made by a Mexican company. Traditional British cars? Not so much. Bentley, Rolls Royce, and Mini are all owned by German businesses. Jaguar and Land Rover are owned by an Indian company. If cars, as you say, reflect national characteristics, what does this say about the English?
