NASCAR Driver Bubba Wallace responded to a profanity-laced tweet that slams him, along with the Black Lives Matter Movement.
Yesterday, Wallace was not going to brush this tweet off and let it go unnoticed. The account BEAMdesigns originally quote tweeted a video by Richard Petty Motorsports. The video honors Erik Jones and his number of 43.
BEAMdesigns captions his quote tweet, “RPM will actually have a wheelman behind the wheel and not a political statement looking for attention. This combination should bring much needed results. Congrats @Erik_Jones the 43 is iconic in the sport.”
An account named Excellent Will later commented on BEAMdesigns tweet, saying, “So is this your final position? Cuz I remember a lot of flip flopping when you started getting called out by drivers.”
BEAMdesigns next made a post littered with very explicit language that read, “I never once flip flopped, F*ck Bubba and F*ck the BLM movement and F*ck anyone who wants to censor opinions and let politics get in the way of business relationships. you can quote me all you want, that’s my stance and has been from the get go.”
Subsequently, Bubba Wallace decided to call out the account that he had done business with in the past.
“Can usually let the BS roll off but when it’s somebody I’ve met personally and was genuinely excited to have my first few lids painted by him..hits different. I ultimately left bc I just wanted a different look. No hard feelings just a personal feeling…Damn dude. Roger that”
Another user named Alex Richards commented on BEAMdesigns profanity-laced tweet with a screenshot to show that the account had changed its stance on issues in the past.
BEAMdesigns still has not commented back in reference to the screenshot.
Account that Slams Wallace
According to BEAMdesigns profile, “For over 35 years, Jason Beam has gained a stellar reputation for creating the most unique custom painted helmets in the motorsports industry.” The company is based in Nevada and also has 8,611 followers.
The company has previously painted custom helmets for Wallace, though Wallace eventually began using a different artist. The company’s most recent tweet talks of its sales since they make the statements online.
