Top Gear Christmas special also offended Christians

Jeremy Clarkson

Earlier this week it was reported that Top Gear offended Muslim viewers by wearing burkhas to cheer up co-presenter James May after he was injured. Apparently, Muslims weren’t the only one offended the show’s special “Three Wise Men” Christmas edition.

Christians were also offended by the Christmas episode. What was so offensive? According to reports, the scene showed Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May stepping into the manger where the Lord Jesus lays in order to present him with gifts.

While that is how the story goes in the Bible when the Three Kings arrive to the manger, during the episode, baby Jesus was replaced by a baby in a helmet jumpsuit – the traditional clothing of the Stig.

We honestly found it pretty hilarious.
