The hosts of television show “Top Gear” decided to go on a racist rant while giving their opinions on the Mexican sports car, Mastretta.
Offended and disgusted like myself and many others, Mexican ambassador Eduardo Medina Mora wrote a very heated letter to the BBC exhibiting his distaste for the rude and xenophobic comments.
I love Mexicans, I love their food, their art and their country is beautiful. It particularly irritates me as I was raised closely with many Mexican friend’s and what these idiots said couldn’t be further from the truth.
Here is an excerpt of what was said:
“Why would you want a Mexican car? Because cars reflect national characteristics don’t they?,” said Hammond as they discussed the Mexican sports car, the Mastretta.
“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.”
The trio then described Mexican food as “refried sick” before suggesting Mexicans spent all day asleep.
“That’s why we won’t get any complaints about this because at the Mexican embassy the ambassador’s going to be sitting there with a remote control like this,” said Clarkson, pretending to slump in a chair, snoring.
