The comedian revealed her true feelings on the Top Gear host while speaking to fans at the Hay literature festival, The Mirror reports. She recalled how she had jokingly suggested that Clarkson should be sacked at a think tank with BBC bosses.
Brand said: "The top executive asked for ideas and turned to me first. I was sitting next to Clarkson. I said, 'Well, you can f**king take him off, for a start'. I was only winding him up - I know he is very successful and earns squillions, but he didn't like what I said.
"He turned to me and said: 'I don't know why you're on telly - all you ever talk about is periods'. It was so unfair."
The 53-year-old Getting On star continued: "Jeremy Clarkson is rather charming but I can't stomach his public persona. I don't like his casual racism and casual misogyny.
"Clarkson, like comedian Jimmy Carr, is a very likeable person who I don't think believes some of the things he says. You might say that is worse, in a way. He's like a naughty boy who says things to wind people up."
Brand recently confirmed to Digital Spy that Getting On has been recommissioned for a third series.
