'Top Gear' Presenter Jeremy Clarkson Doesn't See A Problem With Some Of His Language, States BBC Director Of Television Danny Cohen

Jeremy Clarkson “doesn’t see a problem” with the language used in episodes of ‘Top Gear’ which has been described as “racist” by some viewers, according to the BBC’s director of television, Danny Cohen.

Giving a speech at the Edinburgh International Festival, Danny has said that he found some of Jeremy’s recent controversies - including an incident where he used the racial slur “slope” during an episode of ‘Top Gear’ - “unacceptable”, though he’s claimed Jeremy does not agree with him.

However, despite now stating he thinks some of Jeremy's language has been unacceptable, Danny has previously defended the 'Top Gear' presenter.

Danny's letter came after a full “health check” of the motoring programme was launched with the reported aim of ensuring no offensive language was being used behind the scenes.

the BB were also reportedly interested in checking that staff members felt comfortable in coming forward if they overheard any language they were uncomfortable with.

The controversial presenter was given a severe warning from the BBC after the leaked footage.
