BBC's 'Top Gear' Host to America: 'It Took Us 40 Years to Get Rid of Piers Morgan, Please Don't Send Him Back'

Jeremy Clarkson, a British television personality who hosts the popular BBC program Top Gear, weighed in on the controversy surrounding fellow Brit CNN’s Piers Morgan. Clarkson tweeted on Monday:

The Top Gear host also tweeted:

Following the deadly shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, Morgan insulted second amendment advocates on Twitter and called a guest on his CNN show, Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners for America, an “idiot,” “dangerous” and an “unbelievably stupid man.”

An individual by the name Kurt N. started a petition at WhiteHouse.gov demanding Morgan be deported back to Britain. Thousands have already signed the petition.

Referencing a recent fatal shooting in New York, Morgan tweeted: “I don’t care about a petition to deport me. I do care about poor NY firefighters murdered/injured with an assault weapon today. #GunControlNow.”
