LeBron James has responded furiously on the photo of the noose released in Bubba Wallace’s garage, as it shows that it was a ‘hate crime’
After a noose was found hanging from Bubba Wallace’s garage amid the ongoing protests in the USA, NASCAR launched an investigation for the incident. While the matter was investigated, people speculated about the noose being hung as a hate crime towards Wallace, who is the only black NASCAR driver.
However, the FBI’s investigation revealed that the garage door pull-rope had been at the stall since last October. NBA star LeBron James was one of the many people who commented on the issue after the investigation was concluded.

What is this Bubba Wallace noose incident?
The FBI’s investigation revealed that the noose was not specifically targeted towards Wallace because it’s supposedly been there since the previous year.
The conclusion of the investigation could not reveal who they believed to have tied the said noose. Some officials claimed that the rope was supposedly used to pull down the garage and is normally tied in that manner.
However, authorities conducted a clean sweep of the 29 tracks and 1,684 garage stalls at the speedway and found 11 similar pull-down ropes of that nature, but only one tied specifically to resemble a noose.
Bubba has been a strong advocate for the Black Lives Matter Movement and expressed his support in numerous protests against racism and police brutality.
NBA icon LeBron James has been actively campaigning against police brutalities and racism in America. He along with his longtime business partner Maverick Carter recently started a voting rights group named “More Than A Vote”.
Whatever the case may be, King James definitely has Wallace’s back.
