Dale Earnhardt Jr gets pushed into the wall and Twitter explodes against the man responsible Sean Gardner / Stringer
during practice for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 11, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has some of the most die-hard fans in sports today.  Most are still pretty devastated of the news that he is retiring and are in a very sensitive state.  The Junior nation does not take kindly to anyone putting Dale in harm’s way even if its his own teammate.

In this case, it was a total accident, but that did not stop some of the fan club to take to twitter against Jimmie Johnson. Johnson side-swiped Dale into a wall at the Toyota Owners 400 on Sunday at Richmond International Raceway.  Earnhardt was physically ok but ended up finishing 30th, a somewhat common theme for him lately.
Jimmie took a firestorm of twitter attacks in stride firing right back with some humor. Dale even gets in on the action.
