Jeremy Clarkson takes another dig at the BBC for Top Gear sacking

Jeremy Clarkson has taken yet aother dig at his former employers, at a charity auction which had BBC director Tony Hall in the audience.

Upon learning that Tony was in the audience, Clarkson couldn’t resist taking a pop at the BBC, as he got up to present one of the night’s prizes.

“Two years ago I was working for the BBC – I know the director general is sitting over there now shitting himself, but don’t worry Tony, it’s fine… I came on this stage to offer an auction prize,” Clarkson said. “I may have said some choice words about some of the BBC management. I was then sacked. As a result of that I’ve done really well for myself and now I’m at Amazon… you lose.”

Clarkson may have left out the bit where he punched a Top Gear producer in the face while filming on location, and wound up shelling out £100,000 after settling the matter out of court.
