Watch: ‘Top Gear’ Presenter Jeremy Clarkson Calls Out BBC Executives

LONDON – “Top Gear” presenter Jeremy Clarkson, who has been suspended by the BBC for allegedly punching the show’s producer, has called BBC execs “f—ing b-stards.”

He added: “It was a great show and they’ve f—ed it up.”

Clarkson, who was speaking Thursday at a charity event in North London, appeared to suggest that he was about to be sacked. Watch the video below, which the Daily Mirror has secured.

As part of a charity auction, Clarkson said he would drive the winner around the “Top Gear” test track.

“So I thought I’ll go down to Surrey and I’ll do one last lap of that track before the f—ing b-stards sack me,” he said.

He added: “And I’ll drive somebody around in whatever I can get hold of. I’m sacked so it’s probably an Austin Maestro. So who knows? But anyway we will do one last lap of the ‘Top Gear’ test drive.”

“There was an 18-year waiting list to be in the audience of ‘Top Gear,’ but the BBC has f—ed themselves. It was a great show and they’ve f—ed it up. Tonight’s the night when you have the opportunity… I’ll be a bit tearful when I do it, but f— it, let’s do it.”

Support for Clarkson arrived Friday in the shape of right-wing blogger Guido Fawkes, who sent a petition to the BBC signed by almost 1 million people calling for Clarkson’s reinstatement. The petition was delivered by a man dressed as “Top Gear’s” racing driver, The Stig, who travelled to the BBC’s London headquarters riding on top of a tank.
