The wrestling legend who got cut loose by the WWE for making some racist comments is insisting he’s not racist, but showing strong support for the Donald is not going to help.
Hogan was ambushed by TMZ, and he had some interesting comments to make on his firing. He claims he’s cool with it and is sure he’ll get back to working with WWE soon. Oh, and he thinks the country is ready for Vice President Hogan on the ticket of Donald Trump.
According to TMZ:
“Two interesting comments from Hulk Hogan — he’s NOT mad with the WWE for cutting ties with him over the N-word … and says he wants to make America great again, by running with Donald Trump!!!!”
“First, the WWE thing … it’s been more than a month since Vince McMahon wiped all traces of Hogan from the website after reports surfaced that he used the N-word in a racial rant years ago.
Even after several black wrestlers and celebs vouched for Hulk — saying he’s not a racist at heart — Vince has refused to bring him back into the WWE universe.
So, how does Hogan feel about being blackballed? He views the situation more as a temporary “family” conflict and joked that the only “hard feelings” he’s going to have is “when I get [Vince McMahon] in the ring again.”
As for the Trump comments … Hulk says he thinks the country is finally ready for Vice President Hogan, brother.
