When asked if he was worried about backlash, Wallace suggested he was “used to it.”

“The backlash will always be there,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if we provide 100 percent facts and evidence, photo evidence. People are going to photoshop it to make me look like the bad person at the end of the day. I will always have haters. I will always have the motivators to go out there and to try to dethrone me from the pedestal that I am on.”

“For all the kids that are watching and want to be in sports, just know that you will automatically be put on a pedestal whether you like it or not,” he continued. “That’s what happens when you have a voice and you have a platform. People are going to try to take that away from you with all their power. They will lose sleep over making sure you don’t succeed. So, you have to be strong, always keep your head on a swivel and always watch your back, but always stand up for what’s right.”

He also reiterated he doesn’t “feel alone” during this time, noting he’s had “really good conversations” with a number of his fellow drivers. As fans will recall, many racers showed their support for Wallace on social media and pushed his No. 43 car down the track to the starting grid as the national anthem played ahead of last Monday’s race. The words #IStandWithBubba were also painted on the field.
