[UPDATE] Bubba Wallace Is ‘Pissed’ Folks ‘Are Attacking His Character’ After FBI Declared Rope Found Was Not A Noose

​ ​ ​ ​

The FBI investigated and concluded the rope found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage was NOT a noose. People have been sounding off about his alleged “Jussie Smollett” situation and he’s poppin’ back. Find out what he said inside…

UPDATE:

NASCAR released a photo of the alleged "noose" found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall at Talladega on Sunday.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The FBI and DOJ launched an investigation after Bubba Wallace - NASCAR’s only black full-time driver – said a noose was left in his garage stall before the NASCAR Cup Series GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. It was determined the rope found in Bubba’s garage was not a noose. NASCAR issued a statement confirming the results of the FBI’s investigation. No federal crime was committed, according to the authorities:

 

 

The FBI claims the rope that was thought to be a noose was actually a garage door pull that looked like a noose and had been there since October 2019. Supposedly.

“The FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega Superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime. The FBI report concludes, and photographic evidence confirms, that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall. This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment. We appreciate the FBI’s quick and thorough investigation and are thankful to learn that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba. We remain steadfast in our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all who love racing.”

Hours after the FBI announced a noose was NOT found in Bubba's garage, he appeared on CNN to chop it up with Don Lemon about how the rope was found and he doubles down on the rope being a noose despite the FBI's results.

"The image that I have and I have seen of what was hanging in my garage is not a garage pull. I've been racing all my life, we've raced out of hundreds of garages that never had garage pulls like that," Bubba said. "It was a noose, whether tied in 2019 or whatever, it was a noose."

"So, it wasn't directed at me but somebody tied a noose. That's what I'm saying," he continued. "This will not break me. None of the allegations of being a hoax will break me or tear me down. It will piss me off, absolutely. But, that only fuels the competitive drive in me to shut everybody up."

MAGA has been riding him heavy on social media, dubbing him "Jussie Smollett."

A crew member on Bubba's team discovered the rope believed to be a noose. Bubba wasn't allowed to go to the garage because of NASCAR’s coronavirus social distancing protocols. Bubba said he did not see the noose in person, nor did he report it. He said that he saw photos of it and had discussions with his team members, including his crew chief Jerry Baxter, to confirm the rope was a noose.

“The image that I have seen of what was hanging in my garage is not a garage pull,” he said.

After the FBI revealed the conclusion of their investigation, people have been going in on Bubba on social media. However, he's not letting that interfere with the work that needs to be done so black people can been seen as equals.

 

 

"Integrity..something nobody will ever be able to take away from me. God will always test us to show how strong we truly are. Still standing proud and still smiling," Bubba tweeted.

 

 

Sports analyst Jemele Hill spoke out about the incident in support of Bubba and now folks are at her neck:

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Bubba's girlfriend, Amanda Carter, has been by her man's side during the controversy:

I am so proud of you. I am so proud of you for standing up for what is right and continuing to do so without fear of the outcome. For continuing to stand faced with uncertainty and fear all with a smile on your face. I am so proud of you for using your platform. I wish the people saying hurtful comments knew you. I wish everyone knew you. I hope people continue to stand with you because you’re standing for so many others... so many little boys and girls who dream of going fast but haven’t seen someone who looks like them, for all the new and old fans who felt uncomfortable coming to a race and for everyone who has experienced racism. I am so thankful that this was not a purposeful act, I am so thankful you are safe. For those who have stood with Bubba, keep standing. #istandwithbubba and #istillstandwithbubba
