7 correct responses to idiot Richard Hammond saying eating ice cream is "gay"

Have a seat, Richard.

THEY MAY NOT be on Top Gear anymore, but the former Top Gear lads still aren’t doing themselves any favours in the foot-in-mouth department.

Presenter Richard Hammond is in hot water today for saying that he doesn’t eat ice cream, because he’s “straight”.

In a segment of The Grand Tour (their new show on Amazon Prime) with co-presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May, Hammond responds to Clarkson saying you couldn’t enjoy a chocolate Magnum inside a particular car, telling him

It’s alright, I don’t eat ice cream. It’s got something to do with being straight.

[Audience guffaws]

Clarkson and May look bemused at his answer, with Clarkson asking:

Are you saying everyone who likes ice cream… you’re saying all children are [mutters] homosexual*?

[More audience guffawing]

*God forbid he might say it out loud lest he might CATCH IT

Hammond counters:

There’s nothing wrong with it, but a grown man eating an ice cream, you know, it’s a bit… it’s that way rather than that way.

[Makes juvenile gestures with hands]

Cue a bit more BANTER about 99s and 69s and a “chocolate thingy”, some more guffawing, and the final death knell for any credibility these LADS once had.

Naturally, people are annoyed, and the digs are coming in thick and fast.
