Twitter implodes after Top Gear trio defect to Amazon Prime

We just found out that Amazon Prime struck a deal to brodcast a car show presented by Top Gear’s ex-hosts, but not everyone’s happy about it.

What seems to be vexing everyone is that Amazon Prime won the series, rather than rival broadcasters like Netflix, ITV, or Channel 4.

The show, which is due to start airing next year, will require an Amazon Prime membership to watch – that’ll set you back £79 per year.

So unless you’re willing to fork out serious cash for the subscription, you’ll have to miss out on Clarkson’s Top Gear 2.0.

That’s unsurprisingly riled a lot of Top Gear fans up, as the original show needed little other than a TV or BBC iPlayer to watch.

And, as usual, nowhere is the indignation more fierce than on Twitter:

What a cheery bunch. But hey, at least there’s one person not hating on Amazon Prime. Not directly, anyway:

Fortunately for the Top Gear dissidents, it seems Jeremy Clarkson still hasn’t ironed out all of the details yet:
