This A- list mostly television actor has two big hits to his credit.
One of them iconic.
He didn’t quit his latest project though, he was asked to leave.
It was basically a repeat of what happened previously on the show.
Too many women were complaining too often about his touching and groping and “special hugs.”
Matt LeBlanc to leave Top Gear
Matt LeBlanc is to leave Top Gear after the next series.
The Friends and Episodes star began presenting the BBC Two show alongside Chris Evans in 2016.
LeBlanc went on to front the show with Rory Reid and Chris Harris when Evans left after his first series.
LeBlanc said that despite Top Gear being “great fun”, the “time commitment and extensive travel… takes me away from my family and friends more than I’m comfortable with.” – Source
How Jeremy Clarkson Got Himself Fired, and What Happens Next
Last week, car fans and casual BBC watchers alike got the bad news we’d all been bracing for: Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson will no longer appear on the show. It’s an ignoble, unfortunate end for the man who was instrumental in making Top Gear the show that it is today. But how did we get here? And what happens next?
The “fracas” that led to the BBC not renewing Clarkson’s Top Gear contract first came to light on March 10, but by that point Clarkson was already skating on some very thin ice. In January of this year, show producer Andy Wilman looked back on 2014 as “an annus horribilis” for the show, thanks to three separate large-scale controversies that all had Clarkson at the center.
A recap of Top Gear’s rough year: In March 2014, Clarkson was accused of making an anti-Asian racist “joke” on the show’s Burma special, triggering a lawsuit against the BBC. Two months later, unaired rehearsal footage leaked that appeared to show Clarkson uttering the N-word. Clarkson offered an uncharacteristically sincere apology but admitted—presciently, now that we’ve got the benefit of hindsight—that another screw-up would likely cost him his job.
And then there was the October 2014 riot that chased the Top Gear crew out of Argentina. Locals claimed that the license plate on Clarkson’s Porsche 928 made a veiled jab at that country’s defeat by the British in the 1982 Falklands War, still a very sore subject among Argentinians. Though producer Wilman insisted the plate was an unintentional coincidence, the international incident it sparked caused major rancor for the BBC.- Source
