Jeremy Clarkson Brands Vegans ‘Lunatics’ Whilst Promoting Farming Show

Jeremy Clarkson has bashed vegans once again whilst promoting his farming show, Clarkson’s Farm.

Responding to criticism from vegans, he reportedly said there are ‘lunatics in every society’.

Jeremy Clarkson

The Grand Tour presenter made the comments at a press conference, according to The Express.

It came after he was questioned about potential backlash on the show, which documents his journey to becoming a farmer.

He’s owned the Costswals farm, Diddly Squat, for over a decade but became more involved when he made a deal to turn the experience into an Amazon Prime television series.

Vegan criticism

The 61-year-old insisted he wasn’t ‘going round’ with a machine gun and the animals were killed ‘humanely’, the news outlet added.

Other comments including the difficulties of sheep farming. He reportedly added: “They don’t want to die in a nice smooth relaxing way, they want to die of something revolting. 

“So they will put their head in the stock fence and try to cut it off, or they will just decide to rot from the back end. 

“They literally rot! Then you have to pay someone to shoot them.

“I should do this myself but it’s just impossible as far as I can work out.”

Jeremy Clarkson’s controversial comments

It comes after the Top Gear host recently asserted that ‘normal people eat meat’.

‘Nobody likes killing an animal’, he added.

The presenter and journalist has come under fire before for making comments about Greta Thunberg.

He said: “Pause for a moment to consider how soundly you sleep at night, knowing that adults are building and servicing and flying Sweden’s fighter planes to keep you safe.”

Moreover, his own daughter criticized him for branding the climate activist teen a ‘spoilt brat’.

Yes. You’re a sociopathic nonce. Very correct self observations on your part. But that’s ok, poison your children it’s your fault in the end.

Haha! Yes, the poison that is fruit and vegetables, as claimed by all reputable sources. Please enlighten me: as someone who has existed for 34 years on this planet and has never touched a piece of meat in his life, when does the poison kick in?

I’m not a supporter or a hater of Clarkson. I just think if you want to do something good and improve the world don’t report on useless garbage like this. Write about and cover actual news like the corruption of the Australian government and the genocide the Australian animals instead of getting people angry about a guy trying to make a show about farming.
