Jimmie Johnson has a little fun with latest Twitter hater
Jimmie Johnson has had more than one interesting exchange this year with Twitter haters, including one back in August who called the six-time Sprint Cup Series champion "washed up."
At least one of the haters showed up on Twitter on Monday, a day after Johnson made an early exit from the Bank of America 500 because of an oil-pump issue on his No. 48 car.
It seems this particular critic of the Hendrick Motorsports driver believes Johnson is somehow "helping" teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. but not "helping" teammate Jeff Gordon. Both Earnhardt and Gordon are in the Chase; Johnson was eliminated from the Chase two weekends ago at Dover.
Check out the full exchange, along with Johnson's epic reply.

@JimmieJohnson For the record, I'm a 24 fan, and I like Jimmie.
Well thank you and I hope you don't receive any hate tweets. I'm sure "Jimmie's ungrateful" will be in the tweet. https://t.co/fpxnnahNFT— Jimmie Johnson (@JimmieJohnson) October 12, 2015
Nope, I would rather have fun with them. https://t.co/q8CORqvUMi— Jimmie Johnson (@JimmieJohnson) October 12, 2015
