Less than a couple of weeks ago, Bubba Wallace found himself in a whole heap of trouble. This was because he intentionally wrecked Kyle Larson in Las Vegas. This earned him a one-race suspension, so he was forced to miss the Cup race at Homestead-Miami. Ahead of the race, Wallace posted a picture on Twitter, of himself multi-tasking.

To be exact, he was watching the NASCAR race at Homestead, and the Formula One race at the Circuit of the Americas. He even took a dig at himself for his questionable conduct in Vegas. He said in a tweet, “Just DoorDash‘d some Humble Pie for lunch. Ready to sit back and help 23XI Racing get it done today.”

NASCAR fans still hold a grudge against Bubba Wallace

Despite the attempt at a joke, not many fans on social media were amused. In fact, many of them were still mad at the 23XI Racing driver for his stunt. Some people declared that Larson’s initial contact was not intentional, but Bubba’s retaliation definitely was. A few other fans also did not like his initial reaction upon finding out that Christopher Bell was an innocent victim.

Some were surprised that he was still employed by the team, especially after what he did. Few people even declared that he should have been given the full year off. A couple of fans even demanded that Bubba Wallace apologize to Kyle Larson and that 23XI Racing was better off without him. Finally, others called out his cheeky caption and called it a shameless attempt to market his sponsor.
