‘Is your masculinity so fragile, eating any phallic shaped object threatens your heterosexuality?’

Host of TV show The Grand Tour, Richard Hammond has revealed he doesn’t eat ice cream because it’s a bit ‘you know’.

Implying the act of eating an ice cream is gay, Hammond says he doesn’t enjoy eating ice cream because it’s ‘something to do with being straight’.

Co-host Jeremy Clarkson then asks: ‘You’re saying all children are homosexual?’

To which Hammond replies: ‘No, but… there’s nothing wrong with it, but a grown man eating an ice cream, you know, it’s a bit… that was rather than that way.’

The cringe-worthy conversation gets a rousing applause by the studio audience, but Twitter was quick to condemn the exchange.
