ESPN is now under fire after tweeting out the claim that NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace found a noose in his garage, even though the FBI has since determined that it was merely a garage pull line.

As The Daily Wire reports:

ESPN faced backlash on Tuesday afternoon over a tweet that claimed that a “noose” was found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage last year, despite the fact that the FBI concluded that it was a garage door pull.

ESPN made the claim in a nearly three-minute preview video that it posted to Twitter about a documentary that the left-leaning sports organization released today on Bubba Wallace and a controversy that emerged last year when a crew member reported finding a “noose” in his garage.

Nowhere in the short video clip did ESPN disclose the fact that NASCAR had said in a statement that the FBI concluded that the “noose” was a garage door pull down rope.

“The FBI report concludes, and photographic evidence confirms, that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall,” NASCAR said in its statement. “This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment.”

The news comes in the wake of a jury in Chicago finding actor Jussie Smollett guilty of faking a hate crime.

ESPN? What about those idiot fellow NASCAR drivers who made it a point to treat Wallace like some kind of abused disciple of Jesus. It takes a bunch of morons to buy into the constant media lies. Have we heard any mea culpas from anyone yet?
