Coogan believes we shouldn’t be allowed to say negative things about other people even if the things that are said are ridiculous!
They give it and they take it.
For example they make fun of each other about the following things:
Clarkson – dress sense, hair, age, stomach
Hammond – short, teeth
May – dress sense, driving prowess
I don’t know, maybe Coogan has a point? But you have to take it in context, surely the issue here is that they ridiculed Mexico but they also ridicule each other. And their comments about Mexico are so stereotypical that they can’t be taken seriously. Can they?
