Kyle Larson Uses a Racial Slur in an iRacing Game
Kyle Larson who graduated from NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program started trending on Twitter Sunday night (April 12th, 2020) for all the wrong reasons. In an iRacing Pro Series event, which was being played on a live stream on Twitch, Larson said, “You can’t hear me? Hey, n—–,” with a hard “r” sound. He has since been suspended indefinitely by NASCAR and his team, Chip Ganassi Racing.
Larson was not aware that everyone was hearing him during the April 12th virtual racing event. After an awkward silence, racecar driver Anthony Alfredo said, “Kyle, you’re talking to everyone bud.” Aaron MacEachern added, “Yup, we heard that.” The iRacing events have been held with drivers from NASCAR, Indy Car and other major racing circuits competing virtually while real-life races are on hold because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. iRacing is a realistic online simulation that includes the use of a driver’s seat, wheel, and pedals. During the real NASCAR season, the racing organization also runs a virtual competition using the simulation system.
On Monday, April 13th, Larson posted a video apology on Twitter in a 42-second video saying:
“I just want to say I’m sorry, last night I made a mistake and said the word that should never, ever be said, and there’s no excuse for that. You know, I wasn’t raised that way, it’s just an awful thing to say. I feel very sorry for my family, my friends, my partners, the NASCAR community and especially the African-American community. I understand the damage is probably unrepairable. I’ll own up to that. But I just wanted to let you all know how sorry I am and, I hope everyone is staying safe during these crazy times. Thank you.”
