Jeremy Clarkson Under Fire For ‘How To Smuggle Migrants’ Stunt

Jeremy Clarkson tucks another controversy under his belt by teaching anyone who may be interested “a better way for immigrants of getting into Britain.”

Former "Top Gear" host Jeremy Clarkson started the latest episode of “The Grand Tour” off by asking audience members to find his co-host Richard Hammond.

When they failed, the team “revealed” Hammond’s hiding place — inside an Audi TT’s frame.


Clarkson gloated about showing a "better way for immigrants of getting into Britain."

"When immigrants try to get into the country they always come in the back of a container lorry — that is the world's worst game of hide and seek. If you work for Border Force, you open the doors and go, 'Well there you are,'" he said.

“Surely, there must be a better way of getting into Britain. And I think I’ve worked it out.”

Migrant charities said it was “appalling” and “irresponsible” of the production team to pull off something like that.

“We are appalled by the portrayal of migrants as an illegal cargo,” said Barbara Drozdowicz, from the East European Resource Centre.

Kate Gibbs from the Road Haulage Association called the act “irresponsible.”

The ever controversial Clarkson's TV comeback, “The Grand Tour,” is not only among the most expensive series of all times but the most illegally downloaded show in history as well.
