One of the best features or advantages of social media is that you can share your life and opinions with your followers and, if you’re a public figure, with your fans. But not everyone could be a fan, and everything comes with its disadvantages. And for Kyle Busch, an impressive weekend for himself and his son didn’t go criticism-free.

This led to him taking matters into his own hands as he engaged in a battle of words on Twitter. It all began with a tweet that has since been deleted, but we’ll let you figure out what it could’ve been by looking at Kyle Busch’s reply to it.

“Way to way over interject yourself into something that didn’t involve u at all. How have u explained to your kid that there r restricted class kids racing in jr sprints?! I still haven’t gotten mine to understand that one yet,” he had replied.

But it didn’t stop there, as one other fan replied, “Is Kyle Busch complaining about people from higher classes racing in lower categories?”

And the NASCAR driver didn’t back down again, as he hit back saying, “Ironic isn’t it?! If I can’t, then why should others?”

Kyle Busch became the second Kyle from NASCAR to do good on a dirt track

“At least another Kyle is able to come out here and do good too,” said Kyle Busch after winning from eighth place in his very first heat race at the shootout. He referred to the current Cup Series champion Kyle Larson because he is a very successful, very prominent, and a very regular participant in the dirt racing scene.

Speaking after the race, Busch also dropped an F-bomb as he reflected on the last few laps.

“It was close. I about backed it up too far getting into turn three there on the last lap. I even told myself down the backstretch, ‘Alright, don’t f*** this up, make sure you do it right.’ Long behold, I almost did it,” Busch said.

Looking at both these instances of emotional expression by Busch, he is surely one interesting character. Because when he’s mad, he remains witty and polite, but when he’s happy, he forgets the filter.
