In a letter published online, Anonymous tell the BBC that "you don't wanna piss off 300 million people" and promise a DDoS attack on their infrastructure if the famous host isn't brought back, stating "You are warned: DDOS cannons will fire if you don't comply."

The group has announced this is the beginning of their #OpBringBackClarkson movement, we will keep you posted as the story progresses.
