It’s been over a week since Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of murder, after a jury decided that he acted in self-defense shooting three people at the Jacob Blake protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last summer.

Two of the men he shot, Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, were killed. The third, Gaige Grosskreutz, was wounded.

Everybody and their mother had an opinion on the case, including many celebrities, musicians, and athletes, sharing their comments and feelings on the verdict.

NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, expressed his disdain for the verdict, tweeting out:

“Ha, let the boy be black and it would’ve been life… hell he would’ve had his life taken before the bullshit trial.. sad”

He tweet drew a multitude of responses, some in agreement, and some in complete disagreement.

He has since tweeted out a thread, further explaining his thoughts behind the verdict, and race relations in general:

It appears that his intentions were to take a much less divisive rout to what he originally said, but after the thread, he still received a broad range of comments:
