“This Should Be Deleted” – Natalie Decker Slams NASCAR for Their Insensitive Marketing Gimmicks

When it comes to women in NASCAR, a lot more is still left to be done. No women drivers currently compete in the Cup Series, and the sport still remains primarily male-dominated. Hence, when the official Twitter account of the governing body jumped in on a trend that might be insensitive towards women, Natalie Decker decided to enlighten them.

Adam Levine, the lead singer of the famous American band Maroon 5, has been accused of cheating on his wife. Allegedly, he has been sending lewd messages to women on social media. And like every other celebrity news, the accusations against Levine started trending on Twitter.

Many women shared screenshots of these messages as proof of Levine’s behavior. However, people soon started using these messages as memes. And jumping in on the trend, NASCAR’s PR team also shared one of these messages in the form of a meme.

But this did not sit well with many people. Twitter users called NASCAR out in the comment section. Moreover, NASCAR driver Natalie Decker also slammed the post and the fact that the governing body used an insensitive post to trend on social media. Believing that such messages might be triggering for other women and children, Natalie Decker asked NASCAR to delete the post.

However, not everyone agreed with Natalie’s demands. Some Twitter users said that they found NASCAR’s post funny and didn’t see any issues with it. Some others supported her and slammed the governing body for a poor sense of humor.
