“Top Gear” host Jeremy Clarkson had a few choice words for the BBC during a speech at a charity auction in London on Thursday.
“The BBC have f–ked themselves,” Clarkson said in a speech that the Guardian caught on camera. “
Clarkson was suspended from the popular show after a fight with a producer in which Clarkson allegedly tried to punch the man in the face.
“I didn’t foresee my sacking, but I would like to do one last lap,” Clarkson said while auctioning off one lap around the “Top Gear” track with him at the wheel for £100,000. “So I’ll go down to Surrey and I’ll do one last lap of that
“I’ll be a bit tearful when I do it,” Clarkson added. “But f–k it, let’s do it.”
Fans of the show have been trying to get Clarkson reinstated since the incident occurred, even starting an online petition that crashed Change.org with the amount of traffic it received.
Clarkson has yet to be officially fired by the BBC, though they are expected to make a ruling as early as next week.
