Jeremy Clarkson Faces Extreme Backlash After Comments On Australian Bushfires

Jeremy Clarkson has come up against a huge backlash after he made comments about the Australian bushfires in a recent column on The Sun.

He began his writing with the following:

“I’ve suspected for some time God didn’t want people to live in Australia.

“He created it as a continent far, far away where he could house all his experiments that had gone wrong.”

He went on to list a number of the dangerous creatures around the country that is currently suffering from huge bushfires that have left thousands homeless, 23 people dead, and killed countless animals. He then suggested God was “embarrassed” by the animals and therefore set the country on fire.

He says:

“But then along came Captain Cook and now the world knows all about Oz and its stupid, dangerous creatures.

“Plainly, God is embarrassed. Because he’s decided to set fire to it.”

Despite The Grand Tour host’s latest comments on believing in global warming, he says: “When you look at the footage, you know something biblical is going on. Those things are huge.”

Below is a collection of tweets resulting from the column. As you can tell, people got extremely angry:
