On Saturday, an NBC post-race reporter interviewed the winner of the NASCAR event Brandon Brown and suggested that the crowd was chanting “Let’s go Brandon,” when they can clearly be heard saying “F*** Joe Biden.”
The story: As Brown gushed over his victory at Talladega Superspeedway during a post-race interview on Saturday, NBC reporter Kelli Stavast intimated that the loud chants of “F*** Joe Biden” coming from the audience were actually shouts of “Let’s go Brandon.”
Brown won the Xfinity Series event when officials called the race with six laps to go due to darkness.
After completing a series of burnouts to celebrate his first victory at the legendary NASCAR racetrack, Brown joined Stavast for the post-race interview.
“This is just everything we hoped and dreamed for,” he told Stavast. “Everything I’ve ever wanted to do is take the trophy home to mom and dad.”
Stavast’s remark: He was in the middle of thanking his sponsors when the chants broke out from the crowd near where the interview was taking place.
“As you can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go, Brandon,'” Stavast pivoted.
Yet given the loud nature of the chants and their close proximity to the microphone, if there were any chants of “Let’s go, Brandon,” they were overwhelmingly drowned out by the blaring chants of “F*** Joe Biden.”
The chants continued for several seconds before finally dissipating. The interview ended soon after.
Worth noting: NASCAR initially posted a video of the interview that included the chants, but later removed the video.
Crowds at several events, many of them in Southern states, have erupted with chants of “F*** Joe Biden” in the last few months. The chants occur as crowds defy Biden’s COVID-19 safety protocol, gathering in large crowds without masks.
