NASCAR Driver Hailie Deegan Uses R-Word During Virtual Race, Apologizes

NASCAR Driver Hailie Deegan Uses R-Word During Virtual Race, Apologizes

She would hope she does not get into trouble with the David Gilliland Racing team.

"Earlier tonight I used an insensitive word during an online race being broadcast on twitch", Deegan wrote. "It was inappropriate slang and a stupid thing to do".

NASCAR's rising start driver Hailie Deegan has been ordered to undergo sensitivity training for calling an opponent a "retard" during live stream of a virtual race.

76ers limited to 7 healthy players vs. Nuggets
Cameroonian star centre Embiid was sidelined with back tightness while Australian guard Simmons was out with knee stiffness. Philadelphia 7ers were led by 2020 first-round pick Tyrese Maxey , who started at point guard and played 44 minutes.

'We are aware of this inappropriate comment, ' the automaker said via NBC Sports. "Hailie immediately acknowledged this mistake, has apologized and promised to be much more thoughtful in the future", Ford said in the statement.

Deegan - who's scheduled to drive full-time in NASCAR's Truck Series in 2021 - was streaming on Twitch when another driver appeared to nudge her virtual auto during the video game race. Larson was suspended by NASCAR and fired by Chip Ganassi Racing in the span of two days. Then after apparent contact from another driver she added, "Oh, ay, who's the (R-word) behind me?" He is also getting a heavy dose of sensitivity training and was reinstated last October. In 2020, she competed in the ARCA Menards Series, winning rookie of the year honors and finishing third in the series standings. Hailie Deegan would not want to jeopardize her career before it even began. By doing so, she tied the best result registered by a female athlete in the ARCA Series. She was previously a Toyota development driver.
