Jeremy Clarkson left the BBC in March 2015. The management of the channel decided not to renew the contract with the presenter. According to BBC General Manager Tony Hall, this decision was not easy, and opinions in the management of the corporation were divided. However, according to him, “a certain line was crossed.” “We can not tolerate what happened this time,” Hall said.
Jeremy Clarkson was removed from work after a fight with the producer of the popular TV show. As for the incident, the TV company appointed an internal investigation. Co-chairs of Top Gear James May and Richard Hammond refused to shoot new episodes without Clarkson.
