NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace has had a helluva Monday after President Donald Trump targeted him in a tweet earlier this morning.

Hours later, The Richard Petty Motorsports driver signed with Beats by Dre and they wasted no time defending him against Trump’s attack.

“We weren’t going to announce this until later this week, but hate cannot win the day,” Beats by Dre tweeted. “No one should ever be asked to apologize for standing up for what’s right — we are proud to welcome Bubba Wallace to the Beats by Dr. Dre family.”

NASCAR found a noose in Wallace’s garage at Talladega International Speedway in late June, to which the FBI investigated and revealed the noose had been in Wallace’s garage since October 2019. Hours earlier, he was the subject of a tweet from President Donald Trump, who falsely alleged Wallace and NASCAR of perpetuating a “hoax” with the found noose.

“Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX?” Trump tweeted. “That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!”

Wallace responded to Trump’s tweet where he urged the “next generation” to “choose love over hate.”

“Your words and actions will always be held to a higher standard than others,” Wallace wrote. “You don’t learn these things in school. You learn them from trials and tribulations, the ups and downs this crazy world provides. You will always have people testing you. Seeing if they can knock you off your pedestal. I encourage you to keep your head held high and walk proudly on the path you’ve chosen.”
