Hulk Hogan Asks Why It’s Okay For Obama To Use The N-word

Hulk Hogan found that the controversy over his use of the N-word wasn’t going away Sunday night.

The legendary grappler, whose accomplishments were scrubbed from and whose contract was terminated after the report of a video of him using the word surfaced Friday, retweeted a comment that brought further attention to him.

Twitter user Wolfshead Online, whose bio says he is a “citizen journalist, MMO and virtual world commentator, GamerGate supporter, Roman Catholic, conservative and supporter of traditional values,” tweeted to his 604 followers: “Bi-racial President Obama uses N word, is applauded and keep his job. @HulkHogan uses N word, is vilified and loses his job.”

Hogan and United States President Barack Obama did each use the word, but in far different contexts. Obama used the word in a candid discussion about race while talking with Marc Maron for his WTF podcast.

“Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say [the N-word] in public,” Obama said. “That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don’t overnight completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior.”

Early Monday morning, Hogan was tweeting and retweeting people who were offering support.
