Fans on Twitter really think Jimmie Johnson won the 2014 Daytona 500

The 2014 Daytona 500 came to a halt before it could hardly even get started on Sunday. Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes swept through the area, forcing fans and teams to take cover.

FOX Sports decided to air the 2013 race during a part of the delay, but apparently some folks on Twitter didn’t get the notice. In one of the more head shaking moments we’ve seen on the social media platform, fans really believed that Jimmie Johnson had won the Daytona 500 for a second straight year – no joke. They also couldn’t believe that Danica Patrick finished eighth again – seriously.

Without further ado, here’s Twitter proving that we are documenting the fall of Western civilization 140 characters at a time.

And, wait for it … even a Twitter account of ESPN congratulated Patrick, and FOX News posted a status on Facebook for Johnson. Both have since been deleted.

Jimmie Johnson eventually set things straight.

It’s officially time to start the “think before you tweet” campaign.
