Here's What Jeremy Clarkson Had To Say About The Guy Who Fired Him


No hard feelings, right?

Work for the BBC for years. Turn the network’s motoring show into one of the most valuable brands in the world, cause some trouble from time to time and, ultimately, get fired for punching an employee. That’s a chunk of Jeremy Clarkson’s life in a nutshell and the former Top Gear host, as it turns out, still has hard feelings towards the BBC executive who made the decision to fire him. In recent newspaper interview, Jezza launched a personal attack against Danny Cohen, the BBC’s former director of television, who resigned last October.

“Danny and I were, and I suspect will remain forever, very far apart on every single thing,” Jezza stated. “Normally you could find some common ground with somebody, but I think Danny and I could probably only get on perfectly well so long as never had to think about each other for the rest of the time. So what happened? Apparently Cohen had a problem with Jezza naming his dog, a West Highland terrier, Didier Dogba in honor of the Chelsea striker Didier Drogba. Another issue arose when Jezza took issue with Cohen’s wife’s politics. She’s an acclaimed economist who, let’s just say, doesn’t agree with Jezza’s politics; he referred to them both as communists.

Lastly, Jezza was hurt the way the BBC treated him two years ago while he was grieving over his mother’s death. Cohen, in Jezza’s view, did what he could for some time in order to orchestrate the latter’s downfall. “I don’t mind anyone having an opinion that’s different to mine, just so long as they don’t mind my opinion either. So long as it doesn’t impinge on what I do.”
