In the most recent edition of NASCAR drivers getting in trouble for saying bad things during virtual races, driver Hailee Deegan found herself having to apologize for calling an online competitor a “r*tard.”
The incident occurred during a virtual race Sunday on Twitch when another racer appeared to bump her car.
“Oh! Hey!” Deegan said. “Who’s the r*tard behind me?! Don’t do that, please.”
