NEWS: Over 500,000 sign petition for BBC to reinstate politically incorrect "Top Gear" host Jeremy Clarkson

Rebel Staff

The BBC's decision to suspend Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson is blowing up in its face.

Fans of the show have rallied in support of the program's host, who is no stranger to controversy.

The suspension comes after a so-called "fracas" with a producer. BBC's Lucy Manning says the "fracas" involved Clarkson “allegedly hitting a producer."

As a result of the suspension, the popular show will not air this week.

The fate of the next two episodes is also up in the air.

However, a petition to bring Clarkson back, which was started by political blogger Guido Fawkes, has reached over 500,000 signatures.

According to Fox News, the show has a reported 350 million viewers worldwide.

He has previously admitted to punching Piers Morgan……..but who could hold THAT against him……:-)

Last spring I passed a fellow who had parked his car under a tree that a flock of crows frequents….the car was covered in white splats….I said..“don’t tell me…you sent it in to Top Gear and Jeremy Clarkson reviewed it” …got a belly laugh.
