Will Young took jabs at The Grand Tour on Twitter by calling it homophobic after the trio’s comments about the Jeep Wrangler during Episode 2 and 3. We have the full collection of his tweets here. A few days later, The Grand Tour’s Abbie Eaton responded to Young’s tweets with something incredible – she reveals that she is homosexual and therefore, the trio behind The Grand Tour can’t be homophobic.
But, it hasn’t ended with that. Jeremy Clarkson himself had to weigh in. Writing a column for The Sun, he wrote that him and Will Young were friends after the Top Gear recording, where Young took the Reasonably Priced Car around the track.
“But this week, he went berserk on Twitter, saying that I’d been homophobic in the most recent episode of The Grand Tour,” Clarkson writes.
“Many gay people who’d seen the show said they couldn’t see a problem. None of my leftie friends could either. One even said I should tell him to stop being so gay.
“I won’t do that though. And nor will I suggest, once again, that mobile phones should be fitted with breathalysers to stop people drinking and tweeting.”
To end his column, which he named “I’m sorry and I’ll prove it”, Clarkson wrote: “No. Instead, I will apologise to Will for causing him some upset and reassure him that I know I’m not homophobic as I very much enjoy watching lesbians on the internet.”
So there you have it, folks! If you thought Clarkson truly was homophobic, then maybe you should think about the fact he watches lesbians on the internet. Not sure what they’re doing on the internet that can be so interesting, but they must keep him busy for him to mention them!
