'Top Gear' Mexican Jibe Cut for U.S. Airing


'Top Gear' Mexican Jibe Cut for U.S. Airing


BBC bosses have axed the scene, in which the hosts mock Mexican people, in order not to offend U.S. viewers.

Bosses of British motoring TV show "Top Gear" have decided to cut a scene of the hosts mocking Mexicans before it is aired in America. Presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May came under fire from London's Mexican ambassador Eduardo Medina Mora after making jibes about his countrymen during a program broadcast in the U.K. last month.

In the section of the show, the presenters discussed a Mexican sports car and Hammond told viewers, "Why would you want a Mexican car? Because cars reflect national characteristics, don't they? Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep, looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat."

Their comments led to BBC bosses apologizing, and the presenters were also slammed by British funnyman Steve Coogan, who warned the trio to take "responsibility" for their comments. And following the furore, BBC bosses have axed the scene from the episode so as not to offend U.S. viewers.
