Jeremy Clarkson pays £100,000 for that punch

Post by Rob » Wed Feb 24, 2016 2:26 pm

Jeremy Clarkson has apologised to the Top Gear producer he punched after settling a £100,000 racial discrimination and injury claim.
Oisin Tymon launched the action against the presenter and the BBC after a "fracas" last March that left Mr Tymon with a bloody lip.
"I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath," Clarkson said.
The presenter was dropped by the BBC following the assault.

Clarkson, 55, added: "I want to reiterate that none of this was in any way his fault.

"I would also like to make it clear that the abuse he has suffered since the incident is unwarranted and I am sorry too that he has had to go through that.
"I am pleased that this matter is now resolved. Oisin was always a creatively exciting part of Top Gear and I wish him every success with his future projects."

Mr Tymon's lawyers said the case had been settled but did not give details of the settlement.
It is understood to be in excess of £100,000 ($140,000), an amount to which both Clarkson and the BBC contributed.

I tell you what I would quite happily let Clarkson punch me if I could get £100,000 out of it!

I'd let anyone punch me for £100 000. I'd even pay a few quid to get punched by him, I mean, what a story to tell people!

I bet they're both glad it's all over with now though. Concentrate on the new TV show.

I didn't even know this happened! I know there was something going on but I stopped watching this show a few years back. Wow, that is so much money. Someone needs to learn to control themselves.
