Earlier this summer, Bubba Wallace found himself in the middle of a national controversy. Wallace’s pit crew found a garage rope pull tied into a noose. While initially many considered the incident a hate crime, the FBI determined that the noose was not directed towards Wallace.
Amanda Carter took to Instagram following the incident to express how “thankful” she was that it was not a “purposeful act” directed at her boyfriend. She shared a lengthy post in which she praised Wallace for his actions handling the incident.
