Too Little Too Late: Bubba Tries To Smooth Things Over After Doubling Down With CNN’s Lemon Over NASCAR Conspiracy Debacle

NASCAR Bubba Wallace has gotten himself into a quagmire after doubling down with CNN’s Don Lemon over a suppose noose in his garage now he wants to smooth things over and it’s too little too late.

The FBI announced that it concluded their investigation into the allegation that a noose was found in NASCAR’s only full-time black driver Bubba Wallace garage. According to the FBI, the “noose” in question was a garage pull rope that been there since October.

Nevertheless, Wallace joined CNN’s Don Lemon to double down on the conspiracy saying regardless it was a noose.

Former ESPN journalist now MSNBC contributor, Jemele Hill still used the FBI’s findings to claim that NASCAR fans are racist.

Wallace wasn’t handling the criticism well as many were calling him Bubba Smollet for allegedly going along with a hoax. On Wednesday afternoon Wallace tried to smooth things over and issued a statement:

“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. I want to thank my team, NASCCAR 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. Make no mistake, though some will try, this should not detract from the show of unity we had on Monday, and the progress we’ve made as a sport to be a more welcoming environment for all.”

Sharpton doesn’t want to give up on the story yet either.
