FBI: ‘Noose’ found in Bubba Wallace’s stall at Talladega Superspeedway is door pull rope in place since October
Federal authorities say since the rope had been there for months, there was no way anyone could have known the stall would be assigned to NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace this past week.
Employees at a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop in Georgia recorded themselves playing with a noose fashioned out of dough — and they all have been fired.

A 16-second clip posted Sunday to Twitter shows one employee at a Jimmy John’s in Woodstock putting his head into a noose held by another worker. A third employee stood nearby to record the hateful act, while another person can be heard laughing throughout the sick stunt, video shows.
The footage, which was originally posted to Snapchat, also features a “Happy 4th of July” filter.

“Some white employees made a noose, look at the DETAILS in the damn noose dough that’s used for sandwiches,” wrote a man from Alabama who tweeted the footage. “Crazy. They done this before.”
In a statement released Monday, Jimmy John’s said all of the employees involved in producing the video have been fired.

“The actions seen in the video are absolutely unacceptable and do not represent the Jimmy John’s brand or the local franchise ownership team,” the company’s statement continued. “As soon as we were alerted to the video, we notified our franchisee, who quickly investigated and terminated all employees involved.”
Employees at the store will also receive training to “help prevent anything like this” from occurring again, according to the company’s statement.
The statement did not indicate exactly how many workers got fired for the video, but four employees in all lost their jobs, the Macon Telegraph reports.
The apology, however, did little to satisfy some customers who said they’ll never eat at Jimmy John’s again.

“You’ve lost a family of customers right here,” one Twitter reply read.
Another person, meanwhile, suggested that the training for the workers at the Woodstock location be implemented to the entire company.

“Not only is making a noose to mock unacceptable but the way these kids behave it looks like it’s not the first time they’ve endangered customers,” another tweet read. “It’s gonna be awhile before I eat anything from Jimmy John’s.”
