‘Top Gear’ host apologises for video showing him using a N-word

TOP Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has apologised and asked for forgiveness following allegations that he used racist language while he was shooting an episode of the popular BBC show.

Clarkson became embroiled in a racism controversy after The Mirror published a clip of him apparently using the n-word while reciting the nursery rhyme “Eeny, meeny, miny, moe” during filming. The clip, recorded several years ago, was never broadcast.

Clarkson initially denied using racist language, tweeting “I did not use the N-word. Never use it. The Mirror has gone to[o] far this time.”

The tabloid responded by posting a video of Clarkson appearing to begin the slur — prompting Clarkson to put out a video statement apology, saying he was “begging forgiveness”.
