Future Endeavors: Hulk Hogan Released from WWE

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, July 24, 2015
As of July 24, 2015, Hulk Hogan has been released from World Wrestling Entertainment. This is as a result of audio being leaked that features Hogan using racial slurs and rumors that even more of this will be leaked in the future.

WWE has distanced themselves from Hogan like he's the plague, scrubbing all of their content of him as much as possible and removing him as a judge from Tough Enough.

My reaction: Look...I don't condone what Hogan's said whatsoever. Any kind of hateful generalization is bad, no matter who you're targeting or what side you're on. That being said, people are going overboard with this. WWE shouldn't be treating this like they did with the Chris Benoit situation. Is it wrong for him to have said what he said? Of course. But there's a certain level of hypocrisy, because you can guarantee that damn near everybody in this world has said something offensive, whether it be towards a particular race, handicapped people, homosexual people, anything. If Hogan has a problem with black people, that's stupid and uncalled for and a shame, but WWE should have just fired him and said they were sending him to some kind of "discrimination counseling" service or whatever and left it at that. There's no need to act like he is the monster Chris Benoit was, particularly if there are tons of people (many of which are black, like Dennis Rodman) who are coming to his defense to illustrate that this isn't a situation where everyone's swept it under the rug and he's been some horrible bigot mistreating people for decades. Hogan's apologized, which doesn't make up for it, but people nowadays are also so quick to be butthurt about stuff and want to sensationalize everything and blow it out of proportion in the interest of being politically correct. Instead of being so outraged and offended, more people should just be disappointed that Hogan expressed these kind of opinions, rather than call for the townspeople to start gathering and lighting torches to go after Frankenstein's monster.
