Mexican citizen takes legal action against Top Gear after Mexicans called 'lazy, feckless and flatulent', May and Clarkson in telly car crash too!

Dear All

Top Gear the motoring show is boys with toys!

It is fronted by Richard Hammond, James May and Jeremy Clarkson and on the whole, it is a good show.

However, they have been ‘cruising for a bruising’ for some time.

They have wheel spun themselves in trouble by insulting the Mexican people.

Now, the Cabrons have lawyers up their arses.

A Mexican has instructed lawyers to bring a test case against Top Gear after her countrymen were branded 'lazy, feckless and flatulent' on the hit show.

As we say in Scotland opps!

Iris de la Torre is a jewellery design student in London, is bringing the claim under a new equality law.

Big trouble for the BBC possibly to the tune of £1 million in damages!

Ambassador Eduardo Medina-Mora Icaza has called for the presenters to make a public apology for stirring 'bigoted feelings against the Mexican people.'

And he has a point; the boys have been pushing their luck for some time and have gone over the ‘speaking’ limit.

On Sunday night's show, Richard Hammond was discussing a Mexican sports car and suggested that vehicles reflect the national characteristics of the country they are from.

He added:

“Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat.”

He also referred to Mexican food as 'refried sick'.

And fellow presenter James May chipped in by saying it was 'like sick with cheese on it'.

Then Jeremy Clarkson climbed onboard by claiming the ambassador to the UK wouldn't complain because he would be snoring in front of the television at his embassy.

Three amigos, one big pile of shit!

Ambassador Eduardo Medina-Mora Icaza has made a formal complaint to the BBC and called on the presenters to make a public apology for stirring 'bigoted feelings against the Mexican people'.

The legal complaint on behalf of Miss de la Torre claims the comments were unlawful and broke rules banning discrimination of public bodies.
And she has a legal case since the new Equality Act which came into force last year.

The law bans anyone providing a 'service to the public' from doing anything that constitutes discrimination.

So, it looks like Richard Hammond, James May and Jeremy Clarkson best chill out, get public apology word perfect and stop acting like Cabrons!

Or there will be legal tire marks all over their arses by the Mexicans doing wheel spins.

Luckily for them the BBC carries insurance, fully comp which covers third party.

Yours sincerely
