Jeremy Clarkson has gone off on an airport worker who kicked him off a flight while allegedly yelling: "I'm from Argentina so f*** you!"

According to The Sun, the TV star was on his way home from Germany with his buddies James May and Richard Hammond, when they were stopped from boarding.

The check-in agent, Manuel Pereira, was evidently upset at Clarkson over a Top Gear episode in which Clarkson drove a car with a controversial Falklands number plate which was taken as a reference to the Falklands War.

"Our security guys turned round and said, 'They're not letting us on'. I said to this little bald guy, 'What's the problem?' He had a big smile on his face.

He said, 'You've missed it.' We said we had left the lounge when we were told, and he said, 'I'm from Argentina so f*** you,'" Clarkson said.

"This ignorant little worm made us miss our plane and he will pay for it. The police said it was a hate crime and he would be arrested. Yes, even the Germans were 100 per cent on our side - for once."

"Richard Hammond and our producer also heard him. It was disgraceful."

Clarkson continued on calling Pereira a "stupid, bitter and twisted little man" and vowed: "he's not heard the last of this."

However, according to The Sun, Pereira claimed he was Spanish, not Argentinian, and denied swearing. He said: "I would never say such a thing. I wasn't rude. I was polite and professional."
