Dale Earnhardt Jr. recently gave his fans a sneak peek look into his working as an ‘influencer’. This is something that NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin not only related to but trolled Dale Jr. for.

Earnhardt had posted a neat photo of the Christmas tree sitting behind a bunch of wrapped presents and gifts. And NASCARCASM, a parody account, commented on the ratio of the wrapped presents and gifts.

The JR Motorsports owner then posted a behind-the-scenes photo of him taking that Christmas tree photo that his wife, Amy Earnhardt, took. This is what led Denny Hamlin to comment, “The ol lay on the floor cuz it’s too damn hard to get up from the knees. Trust me, I get it.”

Denny Hamlin seems to be in a trolling mood on Twitter

Around the same time Hamlin replied on Earnhardt’s tweet, he also ‘participated’ in a cheeky exchange with the official NASCAR account. This culminated in a savage reply Hamlin gave to one user who criticized him.

NASCAR had asked fans which ‘race jewel’ would they want Denny Hamlin to add to his resume in 2022. The Joe Gibbs driver, in his reply, asked, “Why you gotta be triggering all these haters so close to the holidays?”

NASCAR explained they’re only trying to spread some holiday cheer. But Hamlin then suggested they give people what they want, like, “a update what the HMS shop dog is getting.”

This was obviously a dig aimed towards NASCAR and the attention they give to the championship-winning team, Hendrick Motorsports.

But one fan, in particular, didn’t seem to like Hamlin’s banter as he wrote,Has @dennyhamlin ever thought that just maybe the reason he’s not a fan favorite is because he makes these dumb comments all the time? I’m sure he’ll say he doesn’t care what we think…but remember…without fans he don’t have a job.”
