    Richard Hammond gags while explaining ‘men who eat ice-cream are gay’ on The Grand Tour, ep 6. Are men that watch t…

    And it's provoked a backlash.

    🤗 hello & here's the full richard hammond 'ice creams are gay' piece and yeah, it's awful

    On the day after George Michael died, weasel words from terrified heterosexuals shall not fucking pass. #hammond

    I wish George Michael was still alive so he could tell Richard Hammond to take his fragile masculinity and shove it up his arse.

    homophobia on a show about cars, the most classic white elephant of pathetic threatened masculinity, is so fucking tragic @RichardHammond

    Olly Alexander, the lead singer of Years & Years said:

    excuse me while i gag on my cornetto

    really tho no wonder some straight guys are fucked up they can't even have ice cream

    A lot of people are also taking the piss out of him.

    Imagine denying yourself ice cream AND bumming. Sad.

    I'm gonna go to Richard Hammond's house and deepthroat a Twister.

    If eating ice cream makes you gay then I am Liberace.

    "ice cream is gay" might be the worst opinion I've ever heard and I'm on twitter

    I’ve had SO much ice cream, really really hard ice cream, from a variety of angles.

    Both Richard Hammond and representatives for Amazon Prime Video did not respond to BuzzFeed News' request for comment.
