Due to Clarkson’s popularity, all his followers are of course minimizing and trivialising the abuse he made a choice to inflict on someone. And he has a history of abuse.
Many are even going as far as saying the victim deserved what he got.
Calling him racist names, verbally abusing him for 20 minutes, and then punching him – over ‘food’ (reportedly) – is verbal and physical assault, abuse. And this should result in anyone getting sacked. Especially when they have a history of abusive behaviours.
But, society just loves to minimize and trivialise abuse – when they have selfish reasons to want to support, condone and encourage the abuser.
Classic example, all over social media, of statements being made of minimizing abuse.
As usual narcissistic/sociopathicpsychopathic abuse – minimized, trivialised, ignored, condoned.
And this is one of the main reasons why abuse of every kind, is increasing.
