Ill-advised Clarkson recruitment tweet prompts Twitter backlash

OUSTED ‘Top Gear’ host Jeremy Clarkson was at the centre of a Twitter backlash against Edinburgh Police over a recruitment tweet

OUSTED ‘Top Gear’ host Jeremy Clarkson was at the centre of a Twitter backlash against Edinburgh Police.

The Scottish force sought to capitalise on the woes of the controversial presenter – sacked after allegedly aiming a punch at a BBC producer during a row – during a recruitment drive this week.

The offending tweet was illustrated with tongue-in-cheek photos of Clarkson and former One Direction star Zayn Malik asking: “Looking for a new job? Police Scotland are recruiting now.”

The ill-advised recruitment tactic came just one day after Clarkson’s sacking – and as One Direction fans across the world continue to mourn the exit of Malik from the band.

Twitter account holder @edinspotlight was among the first to react, questioning: “Why would you use Clarkson in that tweet? He assaulted someone.”

Others swiftly joined in with @kennethdouglas asking: “Are @edinburghpolice looking to employ a violent bully? #socialmediafail”

The controversial post has since been taken down.

A Police Scotsman spokesperson said: “Social media is an important tool for communicating with the public.

“It is never our intention to cause offence to our communities whenever humour is used during our online interaction – and this post has now been removed.”
