It would seem that the controversy surrounding the Top Gear Patagonia Special still isn’t over. In what was supposed to be an otherwise normal flight back to the UK with co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May, a check-in agent by the name of Manuel Pereira who was, unbeknownst to them, an Argentinian with an apparent grudge to hold against Clarkson, refused to let him aboard.
The crew’s security attempted to get the team onto the plane and instead delivered the news that Pereira was refusing to let them board.
Clarkson asked the man ” What’s the problem?” to which Pereira replied “You’ve missed it”, referring to the boarding call, and when asked again to let them board, he then replied, “I’m from Argentina, so f*** you.”
Pereira then reported Clarkson to the Stuttgart, Germany police as Jeremy Clarkson ranted “F*** you!”.
In further response, Jeremy said, ” He’s a stupid, bitter and twisted little man.” before vowing revenge on the “ignorant little worm” who was responsible for Clarkson’s delay in returning home. Jeremy went on further to demand that Pereira be arrested and said ” The police said it was a hate crime and he would be arrested. Yes, even the Germans were 100 percent on our side- for once.”
Meanwhile, Hammond and May, in traditional Top Gear fashion, boarded the plane anyways, and made their way home, leaving the distressed Clarkson to find his own way out of Germany.
Apparently, Clarkson can’t go anywhere without causing some kind of controversy. Do you think that the check-in clerk had a right to keep Clarkson from boarding, or was he out of line? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to like and follow us on Facebook, and Twitter for more news and updates.
