NASCAR Suspends Driver for ‘Liking’ Meme That Mocked George Floyd’s Death

NASCAR Noah Gragson has been suspended indefinitely because he “liked” a meme that mocked the death of George Floyd.

The 25-year-old Gragson, who is from Las Vegas, is in his first full season in the Cup series and is No. 33 in points.

Gragson did not create the meme – he just liked it. And that could very well end his NASCAR career. The meme that caused the issue is posted below.

“We have made the decision to suspend Noah Gragson effective immediately regarding his actions that do not represent the values of our team,” Legacy Motor Club said.

Has NASCAR gone woke?

It’s unclear how NASCAR found out that Gragson was one of the more than 77,000 people who “liked” the social media post.

NASCAR says there’s no word on when or if he will return to the sport.

“NASCAR fully supports Legacy Motor Club’s decision to suspend Noah Gragson,” NASCAR said. “Following his actions on social media, NASCAR has determined that Gragson has violated the Member Conduct section of the 2023 NASCAR Rule Book and has placed him under indefinite suspension.”

Gragson posted an apology on Twitter:

“I am disappointed in myself for my lack of attention and actions on social media,” he wrote. “I understand the severity of this situation. I love and appreciate everyone. I try to treat everyone equally no matter who they are. I messed up plain and simple.”

Critics have accused NASCAR of taking a hard left turn and overreacting. They point out that Bubba Wallace was never punished for fabricating the infamous “noose” hoax. It turned out to be a garage door rope.
