Jeremy Clarkson is urging his fans to stop blaming the show producer he punched for his sacking.

Oisin Tymon, who had to receive medical attention following the unprovoked attack at a hotel in Yorkshire earlier this month, has been targeted by trolls on social media.

Approached by reporters as he rode his bicycle earlier today, he said: “All I would like to say is I wish people would leave Ois alone, because none of this is his fault.”

The journalists gathered had asked the former Top Gear presenter whether he was worried about been arrested by the police over the incident.

Findings from the BBC inquiry included that "Oisin Tymon was shocked and distressed by the incident, and believed that he had lost his job" and had been so badly hit that he needed to go to A&E for swelling an bleeding to his mouth.

While the producer does not have a Twitter account, a number of Clarkson supporters posted their disdain for the producer on social media:

Oisin Tymon had to go to A&E !!! let's hope he visits the morgue VERY soon , arsewipe !!!
