Bubba Wallace called people who believe noose incident was staged “simple-minded people…afraid of change””

Prior to the revelation that there was no “hate crime” involved in the garage pull rope fashioned into a “noose” as an apparent handle, Bubba Wallace appeared on “The View.”

.@BubbaWallace on those who believe the noose incident was staged: “It’s simple-minded people like that, the ones that are afraid of change, they use everything in their power to defend what they stand up for… instead of trying to listen and understand what’s going on.”

While there is no evidence the incident was staged, the FBI has concluded Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime.

As YouTuber Mark Dice had predicted, the “noose” was just the apparent handle from the garage pull rope.


Internet Sleuths had also noticed the “garage pull” rope handle used in Talladega garages by NASCAR was fashioned into a noose.

The Week reports the FBI completed its investigation into the discovery of a noose found Sunday in a NASCAR garage assigned to the series’ only Black driver Bubba Wallace, determining that Wallace was not the target of a hate crime.

After conducting several interviews and reviewing NASCAR-confirmed video, investigators concluded the “garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose” had been in the same position since at least last October, while Wallace was only assigned the garage last week. In a statement, NASCAR expressed gratitude toward the FBI for its investigation and said it was “thankful that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba.”

Prior to the revelation there was no hate crime committed, NASCAR made a huge deal out of the incident.
