Last week, Hulk Hogan was abruptly fired from the WWE after audio footage leaked of him using the n-w0rd.
Now, Hogan is fighting back, and he’s targeting Barack Obama himself.
The audio was leaked by Hogan’s ex-girlfriend Heather Clem, who was making a sex tape with the wrestler when he made the racial comments about his daughter’s boyfriend.
“I mean, I’d rather if she was going to fuck some ni**er, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall ni**er worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player!” Hogan said of his daughter. “I guess we’re all a little racist. F**king ni**er.”
Hogan was immediately disgraced when the audio was leaked, but over the weekend he pointed out the hypocrisy of who gets to use the n-word to his 1.3 million Twitter followers.
“Bi-racial President Obama uses N word, is applauded and keeps his job. @HulkHogan uses N word, is vilified and loses his job,” Hogan wrote, according to Mad World News.
Hogan was referring to a recent interview during which Obama said, “Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say ni**er in public. 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.”
The wrestler’s point was that certain people seem to be getting away with a lot more than others in our society. People like Al Sharpton, Barack Obama, and basically any rapper can use the n-word as much as they like. However, when Hogan said it, his life was completely ruined.
