Legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan was erased clean from the WWE after his racist rants were revealed.  Hogan has since apologized and maintains that he is not racist.  Today Hogan took to this Twitter account and continued to retweet pictures and messages from his fans who stand by him and agree that he is not racist.  One of his retweets however set everyone off all over again.

As you may remember, back in June, President Barack Obama used the n-word during an interview to make a point that there’s still plenty of room to combat racism in America.

“Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public,” Obama said in an interview for the podcast “WTF with Marc Maron.”

“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.”

Obama drew much attention for his use of the word but he was applauded for his message.

Hogan retweeted someone saying Obama gets applauded and keeps his job for using the word while he gets vilified and loses his job.

The nerve of Hogan to even compare himself to Obama is despicable.  The context in which they used the word is COMPLETELY different and he totally just set himself back with that one.
