Eli Lilly Pulls Sponsorship of Conor Daly's NASCAR Team, Due to Racist Slur His Father Used a Decade Before He Was Even Born

This is normal.

All completely normal.

Conor Daly is paying for the sins of his father.

Conor's father, Derek Daly, on Thursday admitted he had used a racial slur in a live radio interview in the early 1980s. Connor Daly was born in 1991.

On Friday, Lilly Diabetes pulled its sponsorship decals from Conor Daly’s No. 6 NASCAR ride, saying that it didn’t want the distraction from their cause.

Lilly's full statement, via NASCAR reporter Chris Knight: "Our sponsorship in Saturday’s race is intended to raise awareness of treatment options and resources for people living with diabetes. Unfortunately, the comments that surfaced this week by Derek Daly distract from this focus, so we have made the decision that Lilly Diabetes will no longer run the No. 6 at Road America this weekend.

"We remain committed to our mission of supporting people with diabetes."

I eagerly anticipate the praise for Eli Lilly's bravery from Jonah Goldberg and David French.
