NASCAR has now taken. the unprecedented step of banning driver Brandon Brown’s ‘Let’s go Brandon’ sponsorship over its alleged anti-Biden political content.
As The Daily Wire reports:
NASCAR has rejected driver Brandon Brown’s sponsorship with “Let’s Go Brandon”-inspired cryptocurrency meme coin LGBcoin, since the popular saying is a slight against President Joe Biden.
According to The Washington Post, a NASCAR official said the organization “made clear during a November discussion about the potential sponsorship that it would not allow any reference or imagery based on the chant.”
The chant, notably, is a knock against Biden and the media. “Let’s go Brandon” went viral last year after Brown won a race and a reporter claimed fans were cheering “Let’s go Brandon,” though they were clearly chanting “F*** Joe Biden.”
“NASCAR on Tuesday decided against approving a sponsorship based on the anti-President Biden slogan ‘Let’s go, Brandon,’ according to a NASCAR official with direct knowledge of the deliberations,” the Post report said.
Brown has previously stated that while he is personally a Republican, he doesn’t want to mix politics in with his professional driving career.
