Brown said with New York Times and write an essay published year Newsweek about the birth of “Let’s Go Brandon“chant. It originated from a NASCAR race that Brown entered after a reporter claimed that the crowd was chanting “Let’s go Brandon” when they were actually chanting “F — Joe Biden.” “The former phrase was popularized as a meme and used as code for the latter.

Brown told New York Times he “didn’t want to get involved in politics” and just wanted to “focus on running,” adding he “didn’t know enough about politics to really form a real opinion.” He also said he hopes to find a way to turn “Let’s Go Brandon” into a positive, like “if they use my name, I want it to work.”

Brown also wrote a essay for Newsweek, in which he wrote that he was afraid of being canceled by “my sponsors, or the media, for getting caught up in something unrelated to me” as the song played. But he went on to say he was trying to “understand why millions of people are chanting my name” and now he believes he can.

“I understand that millions of people are struggling and frustrated right now,” Brown wrote. “Struggling to get through and struggling to build a solid life for themselves and their families, and wondering why their government seems to only make it worse. Everyone has a right to lose. hope – even anger.”

While writing that he has “no interest in leading some kind of political war,” Brown also said that he “will no longer be silent about the situation I find myself in, and why every million Americans are chanting my name,” adding, “I hear them, even when Washington doesn’t.”
