On Friday morning, the WWE cut all ties with the legendary Hulk Hogan following reports of a racist rant in which Hogan used the N-word several times.
Going into the weekend, things seemed to be steadying for the former WWE Hall of Famer.
Not only did his daughter, Brooke, write a poem in defense of her father, but Dennis Rodman, Tito Ortiz and others also spoke out on behalf of Hogan.
Lets lend our support to the Hulkster @HulkHogan who most certainly is not a racist @Scottiepippen @MagicJohnson @Shaq @MikeTyson — Dennis Rodman (@dennisrodman) July 24, 2015
@HulkHogan is a real America & far from a racist.Trying 2smear his name is embarrassing.We stand behind U #HulkHogan pic.twitter.com/27ffUtDSDy — Tito Ortiz (@titoortiz) July 24, 2015
But, the Hulkster may have damaged his reputation beyond repair when he retweeted the following tweet from a user who questioned why President Obama could use the N-word, but Hulk Hogan can't.
Bi-racial President Obama uses N word, is applauded and keeps his job. @HulkHogan uses N word, is vilified and loses his job. — Wolfshead Online (@WolfsheadOnline) July 27, 2015
It might be a good idea to stay away from social media for a while, Hulk.
