Hailie Deegan Issues Apology For Use of Slur During Twitch Stream

Hailie Deegan

NASCAR driver Hailie Deegan has issued an apology “everyone who was offended by it” for saying the R-word during a live stream on Twitch on Sunday night, according to Yahoo Sports’ Nick Bromberg.

A clip from the stream was recorded and shared on social media, which you can see below:

“Earlier tonight I used an insensitive word during an online race being broadcast on twitch” Deegan said in an official statement issued on her Twitter page.  “It was inappropriate slang and a stupid thing to do. I apologize to everyone who was offended by it.  There’s no excuse for it, and I know I have to do better for my sponsors and my fans.”

Deegan, 19, is the daughter of motocross legend Brian Deegan and has become one of the more popular NASCAR drivers despite only making it to one Truck Series start.

“We are aware of this inappropriate comment,” FORD said via NBC Sports. “Hailie immediately acknowledged this mistake, has apologized and promised to be much more thoughtful in the future.”
