NASCAR driver Kyle Larson was caught on video using a racial slur during a virtual race.
The incident occurred while Larson was participating in an iRacing event Sunday night, according to Sports Illustrated. NASCAR is using virtual races to fill time during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“You can’t hear me?” Larson, who is half Japanese, asked a fellow driver before uttering the N-word.
It was not immediately clear if he would be dropped by his sponsors, which include Ganassi, McDonalds and Credit One Bank.
Watch the video clip below.
Update: Larson posted a video on Monday apologizing for the remarks.
