  • Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc apologize for pulling a Top Gear stunt near Cenotaph

After a lot of aggression, the network and the hosts are apologizing for their doughnut stunt near the Cenotaph.

There’s a time and place to do everything. Matt LeBlanc apparently didn’t get the memo. Matt has recently joined the motor show Top Gear on BBC Two and his hosting duties also include driving and performing different stunts in the show.

Apparently, Matt’s nationality made him not realize to not execute a doughnut stunt in his high powered Ford Mustang on the road surrounding the Cenotaph.

For those of you who don’t know what Cenotaph is like LeBlanc; it is the memorial for the martyred and killed soldiers in the line of duty, according to Telegraph.

A sight that commands nothing less than respect and reverence became the sight of entertainment for Matt and his stunt driver. Matt even took a picture from inside the car and posted it on his Twitter account. 

Bad choice Matt and BBC. The pictures and the snapshots of the scene have been met with aggressive retaliation. Colonel Richard Kemp, a former Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan was clear on calling it a ‘gravely disrespectful’ act.

The network and other host of the show are saying that they are completely understanding of the furore and the uprising against the stunt. 

Chris Evans, the host of the show, talked on Radio 2 studios following his Monday breakfast show, and said that he was mortified by the shooting of the scene and he apologized to everyone.

He said that if he could, he would pull the tape off a hundred percent and never show it on air but it was not up to him. He said that he knew that no circumstances could explain the actions and he understood why some people were angry about it. He took the time to apologize on his own behalf, on Matt’s and the Top Gear’s team. He added that they will make this right.
