Jeremy Clarkson Apologizes For Punching A Man In The Face And Pays Him Off

Celebrity

All because he couldn't get a steak.

Remember when Jeremy Clarkson punched Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon in the face and called him a "lazy, Irish c-unt"? Of course, how can anyone forget; Clarkson was fired from Top Gear as a result. Several months ago, Tymon sued Clarkson for racial discrimination and personal injury, and now that suit has been settled. According to the London Evening Standard, Clarkson has issued an apology to Tymon and agreed to pay him 100,000 pounds.

All of this started when Clarkson went ballistic on Tymon because he couldn’t get a hot sirloin steak at a hotel in North Yorkshire after a day of filming. With 100k now in his pocket, chances are Tymon is really happy he couldn’t get Clarkson that steak. You'd take a punch in the face for far less we imagine. In his apology issued through his lawyer, Clarkson stated: "I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath. 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."
