George Michael condems 'pig-ugly' Top Gear host
Wed, 20 Jul 2011 8:28p.m.
George Michael has branded British TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson "homophobic" over comments he made about the singer's sexual orientation during a recent episode of Top Gear.
In Sunday's instalment of the hit motoring show, Clarkson joked about the on-road performance of the new Jaguar XKRS, saying, "It’s very fast and very, very loud. And then in the corners it will get its tail out more readily than George Michael."
A fan posted the clip on the openly-gay pop star's Twitter.com page, prompting the 'Faith' hitmaker to angrily slam Clarkson for making seemingly anti-gay remarks.
He writes, "Good grief Mr.Clarkson, I wasn't implying your towering heterosexuality was in question. I had no desire to insult you! But I do now, you pig-ugly homophobic t**t!!!!!"
Michael had previously requested that Top Gear should be more gay-friendly, and jokingly posted a clip of himself talking about a bright pink Bentley.
