Jeremy Clarkson, 62, couldn’t contain his bewilderment when he read a story about beach-goers reporting a topless sunbather to the police in the South of France. The cops who responded to the complaint had to tell the female to put her bikini top back on, but The Grand Tour host was exasperated that this is all they had to worry about.
In his latest column, he shared his views on the report, shrugging it off in a very Jezza-like manner.
“My beef, however, is with the people who reported the topless girl to the police in the first place,” he said, after comparing banning topless sunbathers in France to “banning gondolas from Venice” and “Beefeaters from the Tower of London”.
But it was the excuse the complaintants used that got him.
“They say they found her breasts upsetting,” he sighed.
The abundance of “facts” appeared to be false, which led others to criticise people taking part in the sick joke.
“So disrespectful and to think so many are tweeting taking the p**s. What is wrong with people Grrr,” one snapped.
“#RIPJeremyClarkson not gonna lie I saw this trending and nearly had a heart attack I was worried that we actually lost this legend,” a second breathed a sigh of relief after they read some of the “insane” posts.
A third slammed: “Whether you like him or not whoever started this hashtag is a very sick person and they need help #RIPJeremyClarkson.”
