Report: Jeremy Clarkson gets final warning from the BBC over recent controversy

Following a recent uproar in the media involving Jeremy Clarkson allegedly dropping the “n-bomb” in an outtake of Top Gear, the BBC found a column by Jezza in The Sun, where he said the BBC gave him his final warning.

Clarkson released a statement on Twitter, and then released a response video, claiming it may have slipped unintentionally.

“It’s inevitable that one day, someone, somewhere will say that I’ve offended them, and that will be that,” he wrote in his piece. “I use the F-word pretty much constantly and the C-word (clearly, the C-word is viewed very differently in the UK…) too, especially when I’m talking about James May. But the N-word. No. It’s not in my lexicon.”

The video of the unaired Top Gear outtakes was released originally on The Daily Mirror, which is the equivalent to a paparazzi-like tabloid.
