Hogan: ‘Why Can Obama Use The N word?’
Wrestling Legend Hulk Hogan was fired by the WWE last week due to comments made in a sex tape several years ago. Was the WWE right to boot Hogan?
Hogan was fired by the WWE after it was revealed that he dropped several n word bombs in a secret sex tape as reported by the National Enquirer and Radar Online. Once the report became public, the WWE scrubbed every image of the Hall Of Famer from their records. While I do not endorse his comments and condemn them. Do I wonder what's the limit of privacy?
Hogan's comments took place while he was having an affair with another man's wife. He was secretly and perhaps illegally recorded. His comments weren't meant for public consumption. However, Hogan was never given the benefit of the doubt and has lost everything. Well, at least for now.
The Washington Post reports that Hogan retweeted a tweet asking why he got the boot for using the n-word, while President Obama said the same thing. Here's the version of the actual tweet courtesy of the Post. “Bi-racial President Obama uses N-word, is applauded and keep his job. @HulkHogan uses N-word, is vilified and loses his job.” The tweet came from Twitter user Wolfshead Online.
In fairness, the President made his statement on a podcast while Hogan's were during inappropriate pillow talk. The world would be better off if we all 'Hulked Up' and gave the n-word the boot!
