In what could only be described as a nightmare former Top Gear presenter, Jeremy Clarkson sought out parents of a transgender girl at a birthday party where he was a guest and proceeded to assail them with a transphobic rant. It is not known if the transgender girl was present but the friends who invited him said they were shocked.
According to News Au.com Clarkson wanted to tell the parents that they were "free to live a lunatic life" but they shouldn't "be allowed to poison the mind of a child."
Clarkson said as far as he was concerned, transgender people were “only found on the internet or in the seedier bits of Bangkok”.
“They were called ladyboys, and in my mind, they were nothing more than the punchline in a stag night anecdote,” he wrote in the piece.
Fresh from being fired from Top Gear after allegedly assaulting a producer, Jeremy Clarkson has just begun filming at Amazon Prime doing a car show which will be available online in the US, UK, Germany and Austria.
Amazon which just begun overcoming a transphobic past has now earned a corporate rating of 85% by HRC while expanding their operations presumably in a bid to attract the best talent.
Employing Clarkson is contrary to Amazon's own Corporate smile policy.
We are outraged about Jeremy Clarkson's inexcusable behaviour and are curious if Amazon wants such a man to damage their hard earned reputation and position in the marketplace.
Jeremy Clarkson goes to great lengths to make a point that he lives without concern for others rendering him basically irredeemable.
We implore Amazon to fire Jeremy Clarkson .
Amazon Fire Transphobic Jeremy Clarkson
