Words.

I don't care about words. I care about actions. And decades of Hogan's actions show he is in a no way a racist.

Bottom line: get over it, you whiny fucking snowflakes.
LMAO
Sick burn, bro.

You know, just because I disliked a person for different reasons, before he was overheard telling someone he's a racist ... doesn't mean I can't hate him for being a racist too.

You call me deranged. It's not me that goes online and defends an admitted racist.

The "it's only words" argument is unreal. You realize, saying racist things is literally being racist? People make this argument all the time. I don't accept the differentiation between acting racist (and doing so in private, where you think no one can see and hear you, so cannot possibly be "for effect"), and being racist.

The one makes the other true.

It's only a circular argument because people like you continue to ignore facts and defend him with illogical rubbish. And having to resort to calling people snowflakes just finishes off undermining your whole argument, as you really can't make a good point without just spitting laughable insults as though they're going to have any affect.

Now, if you'll excuse me I have to go and do some more inbreeding with my British family.

To the average person, Hulk Hogan's kind of a big joke.

Also, you will never convince me that whole sex tape thing wasn't a giant work. Including dropping random n-bombs like that.

Several years after his racist outburst at a comedy show, Michael Richards was given a starring role in a sit com on TV Land. I feel society forgives people who make racist remarks if the person really shows that they're sorry for it.

At the end of the day he was talking in what he thought was the privacy of his own home, not gathering a lynch mob on a street corner or running a political party. It's up to him what he does at home basically.

There's nothing for me to forgive him for in the first place.

Couldn't give a shit about what Hogan said years ago in the privacy of his own home while venting.

I just don't want to see him. Hate his red and yellow superhero schtick. Hollywood Hogan was tolerable, but not much better. As a child of the Attitude Era, I'll never enjoy Hogan's act. I respect the impact of his contributions to wrestling, but I've simply never been entertained by him.

To be honest, what he did was terrible. However in a day and age where politicians are saying much worse, Hogan's case doesn't seem so bad. Should what he did be forgotten? Definitely not. Should he be forgiven? Again, that's a tough one, but it's worth giving him another chance.

Everyone has said hurtful things they're ashamed of.

Just this week, Big E even tried to get all self-righteous on Twitter about it. Despite his flaws, Hogan is the biggest star in the history of professional wrestling and put it on the mainstream map. If Hogan never rose to prominence, the WWE and professional wrestling as we know it today might not exist-- and Big E wouldn't have his lucrative seven-figure job.
Speaking of, have Big E or the New Day tweeted/taken a stand regarding the outcome of the Jussie Smollett farce (was caught lying dead to rights and didn't face a single day of jail time and continued to lie)? Likely not.
