WOW. So that whole Bubba Wallace noose story was a hoax!
This guy’s Twitter thread has all the receipts.
I wrote a few years back that “Hoax Hate Crimes Are More Pervasive Than Real Ones.”
In that piece I noted that the media breathlessly and uncritically accept every hate crime accusation at face value, then flood a national echo chamber blaming “Trump’s America” thus inciting very real hatred for anyone who supports President Trump and then, when it turns out to be a hoax, they barely mention it if at all.
In that way, these hoaxes are starting to look and feel like actual hate crimes against the entire Trump base who are all blamed and attacked for every one of them.
