The last I read he was only suspended but they weren't going to air the remaining two episodes of this season. And I did read this on the BBC website. The allegation was that he punched a producer so I guess I can understand the response.

It's annoying, though. I love that show.

yeah, some sites say he hit, other say he took a swing at.
either way, a over weigh 54 takes a swing at a fit looking 36, just clock the bastard back and be done with it.
well,either way time will tell.

but i am worried about the BBC. top gear is huge internationaly.
you cant have top gear with out clarkson.

I signed the petition. Not sure what influence that will have since I'm sure the BBC knows how popular Clarkson is as a presenter but at least it feels like doing something.

Unless there is something new to it in the past 60mins or so he isn't fired just suspended with out pay until further notice.

Oddly though both times he has threatened people was while he was eating. When he was in Australia a few years ago several fans where bugging him and a few other people while eating dinner and there was threats of punches and stuff. So maybe he is food aggressive? Or I don't know likes to eat with out being bugged.

I personally feel there is something more to this. Was the producer bugging him for something. You need to drive the new stupid car by someone. Or said he ate their ice cream.
One car blog posted that the producer said he wanted to bang (not the word actually posted but you get the idea) Clarkson's wife. (But it could have been just something the blog used to get attention though.) Considering they where all drunk I wouldn't be surprised if it was this though. Drunk joke that Clarkson got offended over and started swinging.

Something tells me if he does get fired from the BBC top gear as a group will end up on another network maybe another arm of the BBC will pick it up. 300million fans around the world multi million $ TV broadcast rights so anyone really wouldn't have a problem with getting it.

If he really did punch another person working with him in the face he SHOULD get sacked.
And the people who are against this are just selfish only thinking about what they want.
Just imagen working some where and this happens to you then you see 1 million other
people thumbing there nose at you and the problem cause they "like" the other guy... losers

If you watch Top Gear you know that his racism and arrogance aren't serious. He literally talks bad about every race on the planet, including Brits, but its obviously a joke and you can tell he isn't serious. As for the arrogance, you can't say you don't jokingly sound like an arrogant prick when talking to your friends about stuff. That's pretty much what he does with Hammond and May.

Some examples of the Racism and how the show is in general:
