    But he quickly had second thoughts and deleted it shortly afterwards.

    I have deleted my last tweet and would like to apologise profusely to anyone who I upset while I was asleep.

    Although it hadn't gone unnoticed, particularly by Piers Morgan.

    Embracing homophobic slurs with your petrol-head mates @JeremyClarkson ? And you have the brass flabby neck to call ME a ****? Wow.

    @JeremyClarkson This isn't ok.

    Richard Hammond has since shared a different image of Jeremy sleeping, minus the homophobic insult.
