A NASCAR crowd at Talladega Superspeedway chanted “F–k Joe Biden” chant on Saturday, but an NBC reporter claims she heard something more innocuous.
NBC Sports reporter Kelli Stavast was in the middle of interviewing driver Brandon Brown after he won his first NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the famed Alabama racetrack when the crowd behind them broke into a chant, Fox News said. An NBC reporter heard a different chant during the interview. “As you can hear the chants from the crowd,” Stavast said to Brown, according to a Twitter post after the race. “Let’s go Brandon.”
The clip shows that the crowd was actually sharing their displeasure with the president and were shouting “F–k Joe Biden.” NASCAR initially posted the interview on Twitter, but later deleted it. The anti-biden chant has taken place at college football games, a boxing match and also The Ryder Cup.
Brandon Brown was unaffected by the chant and called his Talladega victory “a dream come true” and gave a shoutout to his dad. “Dad, we did it,” he yelled. “Let’s go!”
