Upon the breaking news that Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson was suspended pending an investigation into the physical altercation with Oisin Tymon, a petition was setup on Change.org, calling for the reinstatement of Clarkson into the BBC as well as the creation of the “#BringBackClarkson” campaign.
The petition itself went absolutely viral, gathering over one million signatures in just a week. And because of this, an unofficial Stig rode up to the BBC headquarters in a tank driven by the owner of political blog, Guido Fawkes.
The BBC apparently commented, saying the final verdict should be announced next week following an investigation headed by the director of BBC Scotland, Ken MacQuarrie.
