Bubba Wallace Gets Badly Ratioed On Cryptic, Vulgar Tweet Claiming The ‘Boy’ Got Off Because He Wasn’t Black

Black NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, who once claimed that a garage pulley was a noose, played the race card today after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty in his murder trial.

In a cryptic, vulgar tweet, Wallace got badly ratioed as he claimed, “Ha, let the boy be black and it would’ve been life…hell he would’ve had his life taken before the bullsh*t trial.. sad.”

Condemnation of the tweet was swift as many disagreed with the assessment from the driver.

One Twitter user told Wallace in response, “If a white nascar driver makes a controversial tweet like this he’d have to do sensitivity training and lose his ride.”

It was reported at the beginning of the month that white NASCAR driver Kyle Busch will be required to attend sensitivity training before the start of the 2022 season following so-called offensive comments made after a Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway.

Busch, who is a two-time series champion (unlike Wallace who has won one race in his six-year career) used a term that NASCAR deemed “disparages those with intellectual disabilities” when describing an on-track incident with his fellow driver Brad Keselowski. 

Another Twitter user responded, “Clearly you did not watch the trial or look the facts. You just lost a fan who has followed from the Truck series.”

“Welp the respect I’ve gained for you over the past couple years just went out the window. Believe you once said ‘We need to be better’ now you’re making something racial? Didn’t hear you comment on the teen in Texas, the violence in Chicago but you comment on this?” another Twitter user asked.

It is unclear if NASCAR will make a statement on the comments or not, but it is likely that they will just chalk it up to him expressing an emotional reaction.
