Daytona 500 Spectator Says 'F*** Joe Biden' Live on Air During TV Interview

A spectator at the Daytona 500 race in Florida said "f*** Joe Biden" live on air while being interviewed by a television news crew.

During a live broadcast of the NASCAR Cup Series motor race in Daytona Beach on Sunday, a Fox 35 Orlando reporter approached a man in the stand by the track and asked him what he was going to say on the finish line.

"What do you think I'm gonna say, I'm gonna say f**k Joe Biden," the unidentified man replied.

The shocked reporter said "oh no no no, we're not doing that" before walking away to find someone else to interview and apologizing for the expletive language.

Warning: Expletive language.

The "f*** Joe Biden" chant was a popular phrase used by Donald Trump supporters to criticize the president, and could be heard at major sporting events across the country late last year.

The catchphrase has since been replaced by "let's go Brandon," with its origins stemming from another NASCAR event.

The "let's go Brandon" meme originated from NBC Sports reporter Kelli Stavast claiming last October on air that a section of the crowd at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama was chanting "let's go Brandon" in support of NASCAR driver Brandon Brown, instead of "f*** Joe Biden."

It is unclear if Stavast believed the crowd was actually saying "let's go Brandon" or if she was trying deflect from the obscene chant during the live broadcast.

Since then, conservative figures and Trump supporters have used "let's go Brandon" as a way to openly criticize the president without the expletive language, with the phrase even being used on merchandise sold by the former president.

In an opinion piece for Newsweek, Brown described how he did not speak out about his new viral fame for months because he had no interest in getting involved in politics, but understood why "millions of people" continued to chant his name as a way of criticizing the president.

"I have no interest in leading some political fight. I race cars. I am not going to endorse anyone, and I am certainly not going to tell anyone how to vote," Brown wrote.

"But I'm also no longer going to be silent about the situation I find myself in, and why millions of Americans are chanting my name. I hear them, even if Washington does not."

Brown added that he would use the upcoming season and his newfound fame to "spotlight issues that are important to me and to millions of Americans across the country," such as rising gas prices.
