NASCAR Suspends Mike Wallace For Offensive Social Media Post
On Thursday, NASCAR announced that they were suspending driver Mike Wallace for an offensive social media post. NASCAR’s notice read, “any public statement and/or communication that criticizes, ridicules, or otherwise disparages another person based upon that person’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, or handicapping condition, can be considered a violation of that section of the rule book.”
In response to this indefinite suspension, Wallace posted a cryptic Facebook post saying:
You know as I fly across the United States today I’m ready various people’s political views and I have to say a famous four star Military General that I spent time with in the MidEast told me, ‘Mike let me give you some advice don’t ever get in a conversation about politics or religion unless you are really smart,'” Wallace wrote. “I said ‘why do you say that comment?’ His response, ‘It’s like being balanced on a single edge razor blade if you slip you will get cut!’ Think about that before we all make foolish uneducated post! Moral of this story is most of use just repeat what we have heard we really don’t know. Have a great positive day!
