Jeremy Clarkson has received support from Top Gear co-presenter James May who has defended him when he was accused of using a racial slur during the filming of the BBC programme last year.
It has been reported that the 54 year old used the “n word” during the filming of a Top Gear episode that didn’t air. However, Clarkson denies the accusations, tweeting:
I did not use the n word. Never use it. The Mirror has gone way too far this time.

James May took to twitter to insist that Jeremy isn’t racist, tweeting:
“Jeremy Clarkson is not a racist. He is a monumental b*****d and many other things, but not a racist. I wouldn’t work with one. #ThatIsAll.”
The decision is currently being made by the BBC to as to whether Jeremy Clarkson will be keeping his job or not.
