Jeremy Clarkson Rips Bosses Over Suspension: "The BBC Have F—ed Themselves" (Video)
The 'Top Gear' host also called his bosses "f—ing bastards."
Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson tore into his BBC bosses Thursday in the wake of his suspension from the show, saying, "The BBC have f—ed themselves."
Clarkson, who was speaking at a charity auction in London, said, "It was a great show, and they f—ed it up."
"I didn't foresee my sacking," Clarkson told the audience, "but I would like to do one last lap. So I'll go down to Surrey and I'll do one last lap of that track before the f—ing bastards sack me." The tirade was captured on video posted by The Guardian.
Clarkson, whose suspension came down earlier this month after he allegedly attempted to punch a show producer during an argument, was auctioning off a lap around the Top Gear track for £100,000 at the charity event at the Roundhouse in Camden.
Clarkson said, "I'll be a bit tearful when I do it, but f— it. Let's do it."
"I'll drive somebody around in whatever I can get hold of," Clarkson said, describing the auction. "I'm sacked, so it's probably an Austin Maestro. So who knows? But anyway, it will be my last ever lap of the Top Gear track. … There was an 18-year waiting list to be in the audience of Top Gear, but the BBC has f—ed themselves. It was a great show, and they've f—ed it up."
