Jeremy Clarkson has drawn the ire of critics once again, this time for comments made in his column. While discussing the eco feature on his LG flat screen TV, the Top Gear presenter said that using the feature "dims the screen so much, every programme looks like it's being presented by Lenny Henry in a cave."
Henry is a black comedian.

The two have a history of butting heads after they cohosted a celebrity telethon, but the racially tinged jab is just the latest in a series of cringe-worthy jokes from the UK personality.

Previously, Clarkson and his compatriots on Top Gear managed to rile the Mexican government over disparaging comments made toward a supercar company based in the country, and last year's Christmas special garnered the ire of Muslims when Top Gear hosts Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond dressed in the traditional garments of the religion's women. Those episodes garnered apologies from Top Gear, the BBC and Clarkson himself, but there's no indication as to whether the latest comments will require similar atonement.
