Jeremy Clarkson 'So Sorry' Final 'Top Gear' Episode Ended the Way It Did

Jeremy Clarkson, outgoing host of the British auto show "Top Gear," concluded his final episode of the show over the weekend by taking a shot at the BBC.

Clarkson's final episode, which appeared on BBC Two Sunday, featured him along with co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May, according to The Independent. In a column with The Sun, he wrote that the last episode was "cobbled together from two films made before I was fired."

Clarkson, whose contract was not renewed, took to social media to complain about what he believed was a lack of promotion by the BBC.



His co-hosts, who also chose not to return to the show, also posted on Twitter..





Clarkson, the popular, but controversial host of "Top Gear," was sacked in March after the BBC's investigation of an "unprovoked physical and verbal attack" on a production staff member of the show, The Washington Post reported.

Clarkson thanked the audience for their support and expressed regret that his "Top Gear" run is over.

The Washington Post stated that the BBC investigation discovered that Clarkson's attack on the staffer went on for about 30 seconds, during which the staffer did not retaliate. The BBC learned that Clarkson then continued verbally abusing the staffer after a witness stopped the physical assault.

Clarkson's expletive-laced tirade was loud enough "to be heard in the dining room" as the car show host started to include other members of the production team in his verbal assault for a "sustained period of time," The Post noted.

Clarkson later apologized for the way his final episode played out.
