Bubba Wallace Responds To Donald Trump's Tweet With Inspiring Message On Hate

Bubba Wallace has responded to Donald Trump‘s tweet which called him out for an apology to NASCAR.

The driver, whose team had found a door handle fashioned into a noose in his garage, and was the driving force behind the sport taking down the Confederate Flag at racing events, reacted to the President’s hateful words towards him.

Trump had also falsely claimed that since the noose incident, viewership was down at the most recent race. In actual fact, the numbers were up.

Bubba responded with an inspiring message to young kids who were watching what was happening in the world now.

“You will always have people testing you. Seeing if they can knock you off your pedestal,” he wrote. “I encourage you to keep your head held high and walk proudly on the path you have chosen.”

Bubba adds, “Never let anybody tell you [that you] can’t do something!…Last thing, always deal with the hate being thrown at you with LOVE! Love over hate every day…even when it’s HATE from the POTUS…”

Donald Trump Wants NASCAR's Bubba Wallace to Apologize Over Noose 'Hoax'

If you don’t remember, a noose was found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace‘s garage a few weeks ago, and now, weeks later, Donald Trump is tweeting about it.

Bubba did not find the noose himself and NASCAR actually called the incident a hate crime initially. FBI investigated and found that the noose was in the garage in October of 2019.

“Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!” Trump tweeted out. He also seems to be referring to the

NASCAR Driver Bubba Wallace Reacts to Noose Being Found in His Stall at Alabama Race

A disturbing discovery was made in the garage stall of driver Bubba Wallace ahead of his NASCAR race on Sunday (June 21) in Alabama.

The organization announced that they were launching an investigation after a noose was found in the 26-year-old driver’s garage. Bubba is the only black race in the league.

“We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough how seriously we take this heinous act,” NASCAR said in a statement via THR. “As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism in NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all.”

Shortly after the news broke, Bubba took to Twitter to react to the situation.

Today’s despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and ow persistent we must be in the fight against racism,” Bubba wrote. “As my mother told me today, ‘They are just trying to scare you.’ This will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in.”

Just a few weeks ago, Bubba successfully pushed for NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag at its tracks and facilities.

Bubba Wallace Addresses NASCAR Banning Confederate Flag, Calls It 'Huge, Pivotal Moment for the Sport'

Bubba Wallace is celebrating his NASCAR victory.

The 26-year-old driver – who is the only black driver at NASCAR’s highest level – reacted to news on Wednesday (June 10) that NASCAR had officially banned use of the Confederate flag at all events.

“Bravo. Props to NASCAR and everybody involved,” Bubba shared with Fox Sports. “This has been a stressful couple weeks. This is no doubt the biggest race of my career tonight. And it couldn’t be at a more perfect place, where I got my first win in the Truck Series in 2013. Followed it up with that second win in 2014. So I’m excited about tonight. There’s a lot of emotions on the race track and off the race track that are riding with us, but tonight is something special. Today’s been special. Again, hats off to NASCAR.”

Bubba called for the ban of the flag earlier this week, saying it’s a symbol of slavery and injustice.

“[NASCAR president Steve] Phelps and I have been in contact a lot just trying to figure out what steps are next,” Bubba continued. “And that was a huge, pivotal moment for the sport. Lot of backlash, but it creates doors and allows the community to come together as one, and that’s what the real mission is here. So I’m excited about that.”

Bubba will be racing on Wednesday night at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia in a car featuring the words, “Black Lives Matter.”
