Thinking he was off-mic, NASCAR driver Kyle Larson dropped the N-bomb on a video game live stream.
“Can you hear me?” he said. “N—-R”
“Kyle, you’re talking to everyone bud,” another virtual racer said.
“We are extremely disappointed by what Kyle said last night during an iRacing Event. The words that he chose to use are offensive and unacceptable,” Chip Ganassi Racing, Larson’s racing team. “As of this moment we are suspending Kyle without pay while we work through this situation with all appropriate parties.”
Later, New York Mets pitcher Karl Stroman challenged Larson to a fight.
