Megan Rapinoe Questions Why Anyone Would Make A Noose, Thinks Bubba Wallace Was Victim of Hate Crime (TWEET)
Megan Rapinoe doesn’t care what the FBI findings were, she still has doubts about the noose that was found in Bubba Wallace’s garage stall over the weekend.
NASCAR announced on Sunday that an investigation was underway after a noose was found in Wallace’s garage stall at Talladega, but the FBI cleared up the confusion when they announced that the “noose” had actually been in the stall as early as the fall of 2019. The investigation determined no hate crime was committed.
“It’s been an emotional few days. First off, I want to say how relieved I am that the investigation revealed that this wasn’t what we feared it was,” he said. “I want to thank my team, NASCAR and the FBI for acting swiftly and treating this as a real threat. I think we’ll gladly take a little embarrassment over what the alternatives could have been.”
“I’ve been racing all my life. We’ve raced out of hundreds of garages that never had garage pulls like that. So people that want to call it a garage pull and put out all the videos and photos of knots being their evidence, go ahead,” Wallace said on CNN.
United States women’s national team star Megan Rapinoe had a message for those people on social media after the news dropped.
“Curious why anyone would ‘fashion’ anything ‘like a noose’ if not for the explicit purpose of making something that looks EXACTLY LIKE A NOOSE,” she wrote.
As we know now, it was indeed a noose in Bubba Wallace’s garage:
