Famous British presenter Jeremy Clarkson branded vegans as ‘lunatics’ whilst promoting his new farming show.
Clarkson is not strange to controversy. He was once fired from Top Gear when he punched Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon. This time after talking about the many difficulties of sheep farming, it was reported that he said: ‘They don’t want to die in a nice smooth relaxing way, they want to die of something revolting’
This commentary was made after criticism from vegans, then he reportedly added that they are ‘lunatics in every society.
Jeremy Clarkson The Grand Tour presenter made the comments at a press conference, according to “The Express”.
It came after he was questioned about potential backlash on the show, which documents his journey to becoming a farmer.
He’s was the owner of the Costswals farm, for over a decade but became more involved in the management of the farm when he made a deal to turn the experience into an Amazon Prime television series.
The 61-year-old insisted he wasn’t ‘going round’ the farm with a machine gun shooting the animals and the animals were killed as ‘humanely’ as possible, the news outlet added.
Other comments including the difficulties of sheep farming. He reportedly added: “They don’t want to die in a nice smooth relaxing way, they want to die of something revolting.
“So they will put their head in the stock fence and try to cut it off, or they will just decide to rot from the back end.
“They literally rot! Then you have to pay someone to shoot them.
“I should do this myself but it’s just impossible as far as I can work out.”
Jeremy Clarkson’s controversial comments came also after the former Top Gear host recently asserted that ‘normal people eat meat’. ‘Nobody likes killing an animal’, he added.
The presenter and journalist have come under fire before for making comments about Greta Thunberg.
He said: “Pause for a moment to consider how soundly you sleep at night, knowing that adults are building and servicing and flying Sweden’s fighter planes to keep you safe.”
Moreover, his own daughter criticized him for branding the climate activist teen a ‘spoilt brat’.
