Spontaneous joke condemned

During the live show in Johannesburg, Clarkson accidentally shoots an audience member with a paintball gun.

As the unfortunate victim is led away for treatment, Clarkson admits: 'I thought he was a burglar,' when James May replies 'was that a member of the audience you just shot in the bathroom, no, then it can't have been a burglar then, can it?'

Several members of the audience were filming proceedings on their mobile phones and some footage of the incident has been uploaded on YouTube.

Some of the audience can be heard laughing nervously after the poor-taste joke was made.

The three presenters had just finished a stunt involving racing around the auditorium on chariots pulled by several mopeds while trying to shoot each other with paintball guns. 

Oscar Pistorius told police that he had thought his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was a burglar in the bathroom of his luxury house when he gunned her down on Valentine's Day, 2013.

PC requires that humour be banned. Some people have no sense of humour.

This joke tells me that they don't believe Pistorius' burglar excuse either. Why is that bad?
