I as an American have enjoyed your television programme for a long time now, mainly through illegal means such as internet proxies and live streaming websites. But I cannot stand for what you have done.

Your treatment of Mister Clarkson is deplorable. How dare you fire a completely innocent man? He was hungry. The man who did not feed him let his face get in the way of a hungry tall man that just wanted fish and chips. This isn't Mister Clarkson's fault.

Because of this, I will now never illegally download an episode of Top Gear again. I hope other non-license payers do the same.

And I don't care if you don't read this email.
