Top Gear's Clarkson fired by the BBC

It's all over. It's the end of the road for our favorite foul-mouthed Top Gear presenter as we know it as the BBC officially announced that Jeremy Clarkson is fired from being one of the hosts of the hit motoring TV show. His contract will not be renewed after "fracas" with one of the show's producers over a meal rage after shooting.

A few weeks ago, Clarkson was suspended after an argument with one of the producers, namely Oisin Tymon, because the hotel they're staying after shooting didn't served hot foods, namely steak and chips (UK for french fries to you and I). Because of the suspension, the remaining Season 22 episodes of Top Gear are on indefinite hiatus and the BBC has yet to confirm whether to air the remaining episodes or not.

Jeremy Clarkson was infamous for his series of provocative actions through the years. He was warned by the BBC last year that one false move will sack him indefinitely. The last time he made a provocation to others was on the Patagonia special when his Porsche used for the special bears a plate number that provoked Falklands War veterans.

With JC out of the picture, there's still yet to confirm from fellow TG hosts Richard Hammond and James May.

The BBC plans to renew the show for 2016 but the decision is up to the network to decide.

Sigh...I guess it feels like the end of an era for us, car enthusiasts, now that Clarkson's wiped out from the airwaves for good. What will Top Gear be look like without him?
