If you're not familiar with "Roadkill," Here's a synopsis. Two guys from Hot Rod Magazine go on adventures in salvaged classic cars they hop up in a junkyard, cross country stuff. Epic road trip show. Here's an example, little long, but you get the gist.

They also organize some events around the country, one of which is "Roadkill Nights" which took place in Detroit this past Saturday. Sanctioned Drag Racing on City streets? Yeah that sounds like fun. Unfortunately somebody, apparently associated with the Daily Trooper website created a meme using the words, Roadkill nights, attaching it to a racist meme. Now, because the term was used, because the car used in the Charlottesville attack was a Dodge, AND, Dodge sponsors the YouTube show Roadkill, people have added 1 and B together and decided "They were involved!!!" Now the poor fellows are fending off a lot of negative attention that has nothing to do with them. I follow them on Facebook and they're bewildered. If people don't get their heads out of their trunk, this could really screw things up for the guys. I love conspiracy theories, but watching one form that is false just grinds my gears.

The readily triggered will trigger.

Honestly, you're better off just ignoring them, rather than letting there triggered trigger you.

I was just watching there newest episode on YouTube. Came here to get the scoop and seen your post. Its too bad people jump the such conclusions and try to lynch everything related. An amazing show for sure.
