The Grand Tour presenter Jeremy Clarkson is well known by his fans (and everyone else) to speak his mind. And usually, when he does speak his mind, it gets him into trouble. In his recent column, the Clarkson’s Farm presenter hits out at Russian President Vladimir Putin, slamming him for his small stature and blaming this as Putin’s reason to invade Ukraine.
Jeremy has often received backlash for talking his mind, but this time fans joined in as he ripped Putin apart, calling the President “mad”.
“The real reason for the madness is more simple. He’s not very tall.
“Being not very tall seems to affect people. Napoleon wasn’t very tall. Hitler wasn’t very tall.
Jeremy continued angrily:
“Their shortness eats into their very being and they become mad.
“Interestingly, the average height of Russian men is also 5ft 10in, which is presumably why Putin is so angry all the time.
“Because everyone he meets, all day and every day, is three inches taller than him.
“Which means, of course, that they’re better and cleverer than he is, and more likely to have a good looking wife.
“Those who feel small are more likely to invade Ukraine.”
Jeremy, unsurprisingly, has been very publically against the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, posting several times to his Twitter and Instagram accounts in anger:
“What p****s me off is that I know some great Russians and some great Ukrainians.
“And I’ve had some f*****g great nights in both countries. Putin: you are such a c**t.”
He also slandered ex-F1 driver Nikita Mazepin when the Russian driver offered no sympathy for Ukraine.
Nikita Mazepin. You fucking retard. Go and race in Russia on your own. You’d still lose.
