If you watched what was aired of the last season of Top Gear you might have noticed that they were slipping in a handful of cursing every now and then, which seemed to be odd considering that the show was mildly family friendly and would only ever slip in an odd poop joke here and there. Considering that some people just want to kick a horse as it lays dying people have decided to start complaining to their local stations about the language, which amounted to a single “arse” and a couple of “shit”s, but keep in mind all of this was said before the strike 9PM cut off observed in most countries. Thankfully no one cared enough to do anything about it.
Not only are people complaining about something well over a month after the show has been pulled for other, stupider, reasons, they are aren’t even doing it well or in enough numbers to matter. To give this perspective 18 people complained to the British regulator ofcom (their FCC) about the colorful choice of words, 133 complained about the show being pulled from the air. That is about 10 times as many people cared that someone got in trouble for punching a man over not getting a steak than cared that they might have to hear Hammond be upset while he rode a bike over an uncomfortable road in Russia.
