Won’t be invited back

Steve Coogan has waded in with en educated and just argument against Top Gear’s recent xenophobic views on the good people of Mexico.

In an episode of the current series of the hugely popular entertainment show, presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond described Mexican cars like Mexicans ‘lazy, feckless flatulent’. Unfortunately for Top Gear, Mexican ambassador Eduardo Medina-Mora Icaza was watching the show and wasn’t lazy and asked for an apology for the comments. The BBC have since given a hollow apology.

We could waffle on, but you need to read the full Steve Coogan article for yourself. As he says, he won’t be invited back on the show again. Read the full diatribe from The Observer here>.
