The viral story about a noose found in the garage of driver Bubba Wallace has been revealed as yet another hoax. According to the FBI, footage revealed that the noose had been there since 2019 and was used as a pull for a garage door.
The FBI statement comes as Nascar has been taking significant PR moves to counter the narrative that racing culture is racist. In recent weeks they have banned the use of the Confederate flag and they had gone ALL-IN on the Bubba Wallace noose hoax.
Including this show of support for driver Bubba Wallace as the hoax was in full swing.
The hoax has led some to compare Bubba Wallace to Jussie Smollett and the two do kind of look alike.
