Celebrities React To Noose Found In NASCAR Star Bubba Wallace’s Garage – There’s At Least One Skeptic
A noose has allegedly just been found in the garage stall of Bubba Wallace, the only black driver in the NASCAR Cup Series.
Reports are coming in that a noose was found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway in Lincoln, Alabama. Wallace, the only black drive in the NASCAR Cup Series, recently convinced NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag from races.
Noose Found In Wallace’s Stall
“Today, the despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism,” Wallace tweeted after the noose was found.
“As my mother told me today, ‘They are just trying to scare you,'” he added. “This will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in.”

Despicable on every level, obviously. NASCAR must have cameras. Find the culprit and punish them. https://t.co/1DG9zOKbMN

Just disgusting. Imagine how small & self-loathing whoever did this must feel – and to be so cowardly that they don’t even own up to it.
@BubbaWallace on your worst day you’re 10X the man this person is. Keep the hammer down and bring it, you got my full support FWIW.

Not Everyone Is Onboard With Noose Story
However, not everyone was so quick to jump onboard without any visual evidence of the noose.
Let me guess, it will later be found out to be just a random extension cord coiled up, hanging on a workbench that was mistaken for a “noose” due to the hysteria.

After all, the liberal of mayor of Oakland, California demanded a full hate crime investigation into alleged “nooses” that were found in a local park. It was later revealed that they were actually just pieces of exercise equipment that had been put up by a black person.
While the allegations need to be taken seriously, it’s also important not to jump to conclusions and descend into mass hysteria over this incident until more details come to light.
