So to recap:

Bubba Wallace gave up on a race and lost a sponsor
Kyle Larson slung the N word
MTJ is slinging Covid-19 conspiracy theories

To think that it's an election year; we haven't even scratched the surface of crazy yet.

I'm seeing almost no news articles about this. Theres one on racefans.net and unsurprisingly, you shouldn't read the comments.

Yeah it's all over my google news feed.

In other news, Kyle Busch is now only the second most hated Kyle in nascar.

I think this is a pretty good draft class overall. It's really shaping up that way because of the water types.

Suffer not the unclean to live.

Some dude in his 20's dropping n-bombs on video games all day every day for years finally gets caught on a stream, and is forced to face the consequences of his hateful actions.

What a time to be alive.

didn't Kyle Larson rise through the ranks as a part of NASCAR's special diversity initiative too?

Oh yeah I didn't mean to say he wasn't deserving of his spot, just that its great that a dude named Kyle Larson who NASCAR pointed to as a sign of diversity because he is only half of a white person said the N-word

I was willing to attribute the thing about his "favorite football team being the one that stands" to "look at this guy and his bad opinion", but this tears it. Colossal idiot.

Are the drivers getting some sort of show-up money for the major iRacing events? I can't believe all of them would sign on just for the hell of it.

They probably just get a monthly paycheck as part of their contract.

Yep. That's not a word that just slips out there.

I saw someone defending it because Pewdiepie did it.

Also, the more I think about it, the more I'm upset about everyone pulling down their copies of the stream. Partly because the reactions were so loving funny, partly because it sure feels like a lot of them were trying to sweep it under the rug.
