Irish producer Oisin Tymon has been getting horrific personal abuse online following the sacking of Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson.

A BBC investigation found that Clarkson subjected Tymon to “an unprovoked physical and verbal attack” which required hospital treatment.

He threatened to fire the producer a number of times and the physical attack only ended after another person intervened.

Tymon did not make any complaint to BBC bosses over the incident and an investigation was only launched after Clarkson himself made a report about the incident.

Despite these facts trolls are targeting Tymon online.

Hundreds of more trolls are directing abuse at the Irishman. However, many more are rushing to his defence.

One wrote: “It's worrying that people think it was perfectly acceptable for Clarkson to punch #OisinTymon. How many of you assault your colleagues? Odd”

Others called on Clarkson to call on his fans to stop abusing the producer.

The BBC has also received criticism for sacking Clarkson.

However, Wicklow-born BBC presenter Dara Ó Briain hit back at the criticism saying:
