Brandon Brown makes 180 on “Let’s Go Brandon”
Brandon Brown is now taking up the controversial slogan “Let’s Go Brandon”.
The NASCAR driver had conducted a round of media interviews in which he pretended to distance himself from the political chant only to turn around and reveal a vehicle that prominently featured an acronym for the term “LGB” to advocate for a new cryptocurrency advertise.
The Twitter handle for LGBCoin advertises the new crypto as a “meme coin that inspires patriotism”. It can be traded on Coinbase and Uniswap.
In October, Kelli interviewed Stavast Brown on NBC after winning a race in Talladega. The crowd was clearly singing “Fk Joe Biden” but Stavast claimed they were “Let’s go Brandon!”
The phrase took on a life of its own as conservatives used it as a rally to demonstrate their belief that the mainstream media treated President Biden with parodic favoritism.
That month, Brown conducted an interview with the Sports Business Journal in which he said he was “unfortunately” drawn into the political arena where he had to choose either side. He said it gave him sponsorship bouts.
“It has been extremely difficult for us,” Brown told the Sports Business Journal. “If you’re a national corporation, that means you sell to all consumers … and unfortunately when you’re dragged into the political arena, people want you to take sides. I’ve never been put in a position that says, ‘Okay, which side are you on? Left or right?’ Hence, it is difficult for a brand to bond with someone who may be divisive in their customer base.
“If I want to split up Coca-Cola, why do you want to talk to me? So the short answer is that partnerships have been difficult to get in touch with just because it’s seen as a ticking time bomb: “What is he? [g]o Choose or say and how would that affect our consumer base? ‘ It’s too big a risk. I get it on your side, but it makes it really difficult to write everything down. “
Brown also commented in a comment for Newsweek.
“Running at 200 mph doesn’t give me a lot of time to think about politics,” Brown wrote. “And even if I did, I always preferred the roar of the engine to the roar of my voice.”
“Let’s go to America,” Brown concluded.
In a New York Times story titled “Brandon Just Wants to Drive His Race Car,” Brown said he was a Republican voter but didn’t feel like getting involved in politics.
“All of our navigation is that you want to target everyone because, all things considered, everyone is a consumer,” said Brown. “I have no desire to get involved politically.”
