the bubba wallace/noose incident has reached a conclusion.
as you know ( x from the last entry ),
bubba said he found a noose hanging in his car stall.
it seemed like it was a misunderstanding.
this is what “usa today” had to report from the fbi…
Following an investigation, the FBI concluded that the noose found in Bubba Wallace’s No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday was not a federal crime, the U.S. attorney and FBI announced Tuesday afternoon.
“On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway,” the joint statement from U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp, Jr. “After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed.
“The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.
The decision not to pursue federal charges is proper after reviewing all available facts and all applicable federal laws. We offer our thanks to NASCAR, Mr. Wallace, and everyone who cooperated with this investigation.”
folks on social media were foaming at the mouth for another “jussie smollett” scandal,
but i’m glad this didn’t turn out to be more than what it was.

lowkey: i saw a tweet saying if jussie’s scandal happened now,
it would have been better for him.
