Clarkson was dismissed by the BBC on Wednesday afternoon after attacking Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon, who went to A&E with a split lip after the work argument.
Sun columnist Mensch has argued that violence in the workplace can be settled outside of the "legal framework".
Britain has got so pathetically wimpy #ClarksonLouise Mensch (@LouiseMensch) March 25, 2015
"sustained and prolonged verbal abuse" our culture of effeminacy knows no bounds. BBC words, not the producer's, to be clear.Louise Mensch (@LouiseMensch) March 25, 2015
Her remarks attracted some criticism, with Twitter users accusing her of not understanding employment law.
When one user challenged Mensch whether she really thought it was acceptable to hit someone at work, she said she did - as long as the two were evenly matched and the victim was OK with being assaulted.
@MissLauraMarcus yes, I definitely do think it is OK. Between equally matched, and no serious harm done? Yep.Louise Mensch (@LouiseMensch) March 25, 2015
Some also took issue with Mensch's use of the term "effeminate".
The definition of "effeminate" is "(of a man) having characteristics regarded as typical of a woman; unmanly".
Whether that should be seen as a bad thing is down to the individual.Reuse content
