An organization is pulling sponsorship of a NASCAR driver over an “insensitive” remark. Also, that remark was reportedly made over 30 years ago and wasn’t even said by the driver, but rather his father:

In a statement, Daly said he admitted to using a racial slur for African-Americans during a radio interview in the early 1980s. Daly, who had just moved to the United States then, said the term had a different meaning and connotation in his native Ireland.

Daly said he was “mortified’” when he learned how the term was used in the United States and has never used it since then. Conor Daly, 26, wasn’t born when his father made the comment.

And that comment has cost somebody who wasn’t even born at the time a NASCAR sponsorship. Cue the facepalms:

We do live in strange times.
