The BBC has suspended Jeremy Clarkson, the legendary journalist and presenter of one of the world’s most beloved car shows.
Apparently, Clarkson got into a ‘fracas’ with a producer, who decided that it was of such a serious nature that suspension was necessary. The show will also not be airing on BBC this week.
No one’s said anything more and the BBC refuses to comment until further notice, but social media has been going nuts following the news.
Unsurprisingly, Clarkson’s in trouble again: “@guardian: Jeremy Clarkson: a history of BBC Top Gear controversies http://t.co/azBAtl85im”

Gotta love the Brits’ humour.
Half the country wants to get into a ‘fracas’ with Jeremy Clarkson, but a BBC producer gets first shot. Another example of BBC elitism.

One thing we do know; you don’t get to say what you want, while being in media for that long, without having a solid pair and a lot more to offer.
