World's Most Entitled White Man Calls Greta Thunberg "Spoilt"

You might not know this about me, but I am in fact a fan of the British car show "Top Gear," which is now no more for reasons very relevant to this post, as well as the current Amazon car show with the same hosts, "The Grand Tour." I don't actually have any interest in cars at all other than their ability to get me where I need to go, but I do find the antics of the three hosts to be quite hilarious.

This is unfortunate because all of the hosts are middle-aged white men with the kind of entitlement you'd expect from men of that type who are also rich and famous. In particular, Jeremy Clarkson is and has been a MASSIVE ASSHOLE who makes me ashamed to enjoy his shows, even if I do view it via totally definitely legal means that also happen to not funnel any money or ratings to said shows. Cough.

Anyway, as though Clarkson didn't already have a massive list of reasons to think him a completely shitty human being (seriously the "controversies" section of his Wikipedia page is LONG), he decided to pen an entire article for The Sun (already a reason to facepalm) that just directly attacks 16-year-old Greta Thunberg for not being nice to adults who have maybe doomed her entire future.

“Many thousands of people who you had the temerity to blame this week are trying to do exactly what you want. So be a good girl, shut up and let them get on with it. And no. You cannot stay out past ten. And you cannot go out in a skirt that short.”

Lots of horrible adults have attacked Thunberg, but it takes a special kind of asshole to insert gross misogyny and sexualization of a minor into his attacks on a 16-year-old.

I already wrote on this for work but I of course had to hold back on what I really wanted to say, though I did get to include a bunch of tweets pointing out that this was the guy who was fired from Top Gear and got the show cancelled because he PUNCHED A STAFF MEMBER who told him that the hotel chef had gone home and he couldn't have steak. But I can say whatever I want on my blog, so here it is.

Fuck you, Jeremy Clarkson, you nasty, bigoted, awful, entitled man who is a fetus in maturity level compared to Greta Thunberg. You are an irrelevant old man and the only reason The Sun let you write a column is because your unearned privilege allowed you to make a TV show that honestly probably contributed to climate change far more than you would have if it had never existed, and also because it's a shitty tabloid that no one respects. Your show needs to be illegal and you probably know this deep down. You also probably know that no one likes you as a person anymore because you have proven yourself to be a complete baby who makes the world a worse place wherever you go and that's why you're so bitter that you feel the need to shit all over a teenage girl who makes your balls shrivel up when she talks. I hope somebody gives you the ass kicking you so sorely deserve.

Oh, also, his own daughter took him to task for attacking a child AND for being a misogynist, so there's that.

I'd say this was rock bottom for you, Jeremy, but I'll reserve that in the hope someone does kick your ass for being a racist, misogynistic, ableist, homophobic, transphobic piece of shit.

I hope Amazon fires him but they obviously suck too so I'm not gonna hold my breath.
