When one is in the public eye, chances are that they will be faced with a number of situations that just might give them the creeps, especially when interacting with fans.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. just found himself in one of those sticky situations.
In his July 11 podcast, Dale Jr. opened up about a recent situation that occurred at Kentucky Speedway, in which a male fan old enough to know better asked the NASCAR favorite for a selfie.
“I was walking through the garage area, and I’m 42, and there was a guy that might’ve been 40, 50 years old, hollerin’ at me in this big environment, lot of people,” Dale Jr. said. “He’s hollering at me probably 20 yards away: ‘Dale, can I get a selfie?’ And I’m just thinking, ‘Man, it’s weird to hear that from another man.’ And so I was thinking to myself, ‘Have I ever shouted, “Hey can I get a selfie” to another man?’ And I always think to myself, ‘You know, I don’t.’ I actually hand the camera to some man and say, ‘Hey, can you take a picture of me with this person I want to take a picture with?’ ”
Indeed, Dale Jr. went on to say there comes a time for men to probably put a stop to selfies. But females — he’s good with it.
“Now, I think women are on the selfie train for life,” he said. “There’s never a bad time for a woman to ask for a selfie. There’s never an age limit or anything like that. Women can selfie all day long.”
