Just like the Twitter pages of those who dared to talk trash about Zayn Malik last week the e-mail inbox of BBC director-general, Tony Hall has been filling up with death threats.
Seriously, this is true. The Daily Mail have reported that in a terrifying e-mail sent to Tony Hall last Wednesday an insane crazy, who is still screaming his anus off over the sacking of Jeremy Clarkson, has made chilling threats to kill.
This person is acting like Clarkson had saved his ass from a burning building, given him a litter of James May clones and sent him the DVD from the porn season of Footballers Wives. Because DAMN! Poor old Tony Hall has now had to hire a contingent of SAS guards to keep him safe in his Oxfordshire home.
The Mail says that Tony Hall had to place the security men around his home because he’s also received death threats from other viewers (or ex-viewers) who are still mad as hell that their darling Clarkson has been pushed to the sidelines.
They are also furious at rumours suggesting that the entire Top Gear family aren’t going to go on with the show if Clarkson is out. However, the BBC say that they haven’t met with either James May or Richard Hammond since Clarkson was given a forced-quit from the show.
So death threats, really? If you’re phoning Tony Hall and threatening to kill him simply because the BBC have suspended your favourite TV show, then hang up the phone and call 111 for the NHS HELPLINE instead. This really isn’t that serious.
I mean, when ITV yanked Davina McCall out of my life by cancelling PopStars: The Rivals, did I call them up and threaten to murder their faces? No, I didn’t. Okay, I might’ve called them and played Geri Halliwell’s “It’s Raining Men” into their voicemail, which I guess is considered attempted murder…..but still.
And because I don’t want to end this post with MURDER talk, let’s end it with naughty footballer talk!
The Sunday Mirror (via Sunday people) have pointed out that Max Clifford, the jailed creator of smut, has been arrested at Littlehey Prison by police.
They say that the police are investigating claims made by a well know model that she was hired by Clifford to sleep with married Premiership footballers. Allegedly Clifford would then threaten to reveal the results of their ‘away games’ to the press. I think that means he blackmailed them.
Anyway I wish I’d smoked a lot of weed and then made this whole post up. Really I do, but I didn’t.
