Retired F1 driver says Rapper’s staff should ‘learn some manners’
Retired Formula One driver Martin Brundle thinks Megan Thee Stallion’s bodyguards need to “learn some manners” after an unpleasant conversation at Sunday’s US Grand Prix in Texas.
The Sky Sports F1 commentator was walking the grid before the race during a live broadcast simulcast on ABC, interviewing team members and notable personalities, as he does at every event, when he was Megan Stallion and her bodyguards. was checking the scene from the group of.
Texas native was in the running social media post for its sponsor Cash App, And when Brundle first approached him and introduced himself he waved and said “how are you” as a large bodyguard nodded his head “no” and indicated that Brundle should step back.
“I think he’s happy, well, Boss,” Brundle said.
He continued “Megan, you’re a freestyle rapper, do you have any raps for us on Formula One today?”
He responded while walking with a laugh and said, “I don’t have a rap today, I’m sorry.”
Brundle then tried to ask him which driver he supported when another member of his crew forcibly came between the two and told Brundle that he couldn’t.
“I can do that, ’cause I did,” Brundle said into the mic as he walked away, making it clear he had no problem with the rapper.
“She seemed so happy to talk, didn’t she? It was great for her and I appreciate that.”
Brundle, who spent 10 seasons as an F1 driver, on Monday tweeted, “I have felt pressure on the grid before, but by people called Senna, Prost, Schumacher, Mansell, Piquet etc. Bodyguards going to the grid for the first time don’t bother me, everyone has a job to do , but they could probably learn some manners and respect on our patch.”
