Bubba Wallace remains defiant after being busted in his hate crime hoax. Jussie Smollett was also in denial after he was caught staging a fake hate crime.
“I’ve been racing all of my life,” Wallace told CNN‘s Don Lemon. “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 as their evidence, go ahead, but from the evidence that we have – and I have – it’s a straight-up noose.”
Wallace said to Lemon that he found out about the noose in his garage Sunday, when NASCAR President Steve Phelps told him about it.
“The look that he had on his face alerted me in a way that I’ll never forget,” he said.
Wallace said he was frustrated because the incident has some questioning his character.
“It doesn’t matter if we provide evidence, photos,” the NASCAR driver said. “It will always be photoshopped. I will always have haters.”
