Evans goes on to say, “What is fascinating is that he went for what he went for, considering what had gone on before. If you look at the chronology of controversy of Top Gear over the last five or six years, it is bizarre that he went for losing his rag over his dinner when there had been international incidents before that which including offending all of Mexico, and using racial references to an Asian man during a clip filmed in Myanmar.
