Top gear which is a very popular show presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, Top gear has been in the news many times with controversial stories about Jeremy Clarkson saying things that people may have found offensive.
There have been a lot of complaints to the BBC about top gear and yet Jeremy Clarkson remains a presenter on the show. This is because people like the show and who presents it, if they got rid of Jeremy Clarkson the ratings and amount of people who watch the show would go down tremendously.
Here it is him who has all the power because he is so popular, a lot of people find the show comical because of some of the crazy stunts that they do. Some of the things that have been on the show that people have found offensive have two sides to them, in some cases I think that the media has twisted things and in some cases he was generally in the wrong. What I find interesting is that Clarkson has managed to stay on the show throughout the mistakes and complaints made.
