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.”

NASCAR responded by saying they are “outraged” about the noose. And, they are investigating to find out who was behind it.

“Late this afternoon, NASCAR was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the 43 team,” NASCAR said in a statement. “We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough seriously we take this heinous act. We have launched an immediate investigation and will do everything we can to identify the person(s) responsible and eliminate them from the sport.”

Not Everyone Is Onboard With Noose Story

However, not everyone was so quick to jump onboard without any visual evidence of the noose.

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.
