Kyle Larson is starting to feel the effects of what the n-word could mean to a driver. He has received a lot of backlash even though he issued an apology on Monday afternoon.

Credit One Bank and McDonald’s have terminated their relationship with the Chip Ganassi Racing NASCAR Cup Series driver. Chevrolet has also suspended their relationship with Larson.

“As stated earlier, Credit One Bank denounces the highly offensive language used by Kyle Larson during Sunday’s iRacing event,” the company said in a statement. “In addition to the quick actions taken by NASCAR and Chip Ganassi Racing, Credit One Bank is terminating its sponsorship of Kyle Larson.”

Shortly after Credit One Bank issued their statement, McDonald’s, the popular fast food chain, announced that they have terminated their relationship with Larson.

“We were extremely disappointed and appalled to hear about this incident,” McDonald’s USA said in a statement. “The comments made by Kyle Larson are insensitive, offensive, and not reflective of our inclusive values and will not be tolerated. McDonald’s is taking immediate action to terminate the relationship with Larson.”

NASCAR and Chip Ganassi Racing has suspended him indefinitely. Whenever NASCAR begins their season again following their coronavirus pandemic hiatus, it could begin without Larson driving a car.

With Larson’s World of Outlaws Sprint Car team using Chevrolet Accessories, it could also impact him there. iRacing has also suspended him indefinitely from using the platform. Larson called his lack of judgment an ‘error.’
