Hulk Hogan has been doing his best on social media to repair his damaged image since his racial slur rant come to light last Friday. Hogan has been interacting with fans who say he is not racist and retweeting them.
He has also put out tweets thanking people for their support.
One of his re-tweets which is drawing all the wrong attention is one which called out President Obama for using the “N word.”
The tweet is referring to Marc Maron’s podcast interview with Obama where he said “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. 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.”
Below is the tweet which he re-tweeted:
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's drawing some heat because some can't believe Hogan is being ignorant to how he used the "N-word" in comparison to President Obama. A number of his followers have pointed out the context is totally different. Below is how some of his followers have responded:
