Jeremy Clarkson is currently filming the next series of Top Gear and, in between the airing of two seasons, the presenter found some time to pull a PR stunt. Of course, we are talking about Clarkson, so this included offending a large group of people.

Clarkson bashed flying with babies on his Twitter acoount, asking “When will British Airways realise that babies belong in the hold?”. The move came after a recent flight to Scotland which was probably toubled by small children.

As usual, the web started boiling with negative reactions towards Clarkson’s tweet. When the presenter’s question became a piece of Daily Mail news, Clarkson reacted via another tweet: “I have sparked FURY at the Mail for saying babies should travel in a plane's hold. Mine didn't fly till they were old enough to behave.”

He carried on responding to the Daily Mail article, as he subsequently posted the following tweet: “I have had a good idea. Tell Twitter every dreary detail of my life and the Mail doesn't bother writing about it.”

However, some have supported Jeremy’s tweet, poitning out how disturbing crying children can be during a flight. And it seems that some airlines are willing to do something about the problem too. For example, earlier this year Malaysian airline Air Asia X introduced special “quiet zones” on certain flights, which require all passegners to be at least 12 year old.
