Re: Most people have forgiven Hogan. It’s the internet that makes it seem like he’s so ‘notorious’.
Hogan made some very stupid remarks-- and was immediately portrayed as a grand wizard of the KKK. I could understand the ongoing resentment, if there was a documented history of Hogan harboring hatred and taking action (i.e. discriminating against black wrestlers). 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.
