As Twitchy told you Tuesday evening, NASCAR released a statement citing an FBI investigation that found an alleged noose found hanging from Bubba Wallace’s garage had been there since at least last fall was in fact used as a pull rope to close the garage door.
Photos taken well before the alleged incident called the “noose” claims into question. But even though the FBI has determined that Wallace wasn’t the target of any hate crime, former ESPN host and current journalist for The Atlantic, Jemele Hill, isn’t letting go of the original narrative in spite of criticism:
It. Was. A. Noose.
They just don’t believe it was directed at Bubba Wallace.

When your narrative proves to be a complete and total lie, the best thing you can do is double down. https://t.co/PdC9AwjGRt

It. Was. A. Garage. Door. Pull. I've worked in auto shops and seen those type of rope door pulls throughout my life. Jemele you are incorrect on this one. I happen to be Black. So save the White previlege stuff on this one. Just take the "L" and keep it moving.
