Bubba Wallace made his opinion on negative fans very clear last week, admitting that he still has to deal with trolls and critics on social media every now and then.

“You can’t spend too much time on there and feed into that, although I do go back and read the comments,” he said.

“Every post that I click on there—I just go back and read the comments because it’s like ugh, no, still dumbasses today.”

The block button can be of optimal use.

Wallace has blocked notable Twitter troll Nick Adams, who makes absurd claims like "Enes Kanter Freedom was a consensus first-ballot NBA Hall of Famer before taking a stand against Communist China."

If the criticism was anything like Nick's basketball takes, it was surely not constructive. "Maybe he’s just trying to improve his Twitter experience," one fan tweeted. "If the quality of your criticism is the same as the quality of your tweets, it's no mystery as to why he blocked you," another fan tweeted.

Wallace is coming off a 17th place finish at Talladega.

He and the NASCAR Cup Series are set to compete in Dover on Sunday.
