BBC Supported Mexican Jokes on Popular TV Show "Top Gear"

The BBC apologized to the Mexican ambassador to London on Friday for comments made about him on a top television show, but supported its jokes about the country as being part of British humour.

Earlier in the week, Ambassador Eduardo Medina-Mora had complained in writing to the BBC about remarks made by presenters of the motoring show "Top Gear" telling Mexicans as "lazy", "feckless" and "flatulent".

The BBC said in a statement that the executive producer of the show had "written to the Mexican Ambassador and apologized for the comments made about him during the show."
