Top Gear Great Adventures CollectionJeremy Clarkson is in trouble again, this time with Romanian government

he production team of the BBC two hit series Top Gear have been asked by the Romanian government to remove supposedly offensive remarks made about the country. The Romanian ambassador Dr Ion Jinag was surprised and disappointed by the references to Borat and gypsies.

When Clarkson and his co-presenters Hammond and May visited the Romanian countryside, Jeremy put on a pork pie style hat and talked of entering Borat country. Clarkson said: I’m wearing this hat so the gypsies think I am one. I’m told they can be violent if they don’t like the look of you.

The presenter was also seen washing his face before he said ‘cool, refreshing communist water’. The Romanian embassy said: We anticipate a positive response to our request for changes.
