Will Young slams The Grand Tour for ‘homophobic’ jokes
Will Young has condemned The Grand Tour for being “f**king pathetic and actually homophobic.”
The other host of the driving programme, Richard Hammond, uses stereotypes throughout the episode to repeatedly allude to the idea that Clarkson driving a Jeep Wrangler means he’s gay.
Watch a clip from The Grand Tour episode here:
I used to enjoy Clarkson, May and Hammond before homophobia racism, sexism became the purpose of their TV shows.
I naively thought, maybe that’s gone now.
Turn on The Grand Tour. 3 minutes in was this, followed by racist Colombia jokes and more homophobia. @AmazonUK 1/2 pic.twitter.com/K5yqyg63jV

While Clarkson is driving the Jeep, Hammond tells him: “I’m proud of you. That’s a hard thing to do and you’ve done it. You’re going to be so much happier.”
He also comments on his fellow host’s clothes, saying: “You should have gone the whole hog… maybe some nice chaps, suede but ventilated at the back.
“And that [pink] shirt, you’ve picked up that colour—have you been getting advice?”
When the song “It’s Raining Men” plays in the Jeep later in the episode, Hammond suggests that Clarkson “think of it as advertising.”
