Hulk Hogan has been receiving backlash online for his comments about COVID-19 vaccines and recent celebrity deaths.
On a Facebook post about comedian Bob Saget’s passing, a user suggested that Saget died from the effects of a COVID-19 vaccine. Hogan replied to this comment, mentioning Betty White and Sidney Poitier’s passings.
In a now-deleted comment, Hogan wrote:
“100% Betty and Sidney were also jabbed. They’re dropping like flies, but they’ll never say that.”
As per NoDQ.com, The WWE Hall of Famer edited his comment, but Facebook users could still view his original reply. Hogan later deleted the comment altogether.
Hogan’s name has been controversial since racist remarks made by him surfaced in 2015. His last major appearance for WWE was as a co-host for WrestleMania 37 in April 2021, alongside Titus O’Neil.
Sometimes they just satirize themselves…
Hulk Hogan seems to suggest that Betty White, age 99, died because she was vaccinated.
Hogan has also suggested, repeatedly, that he got his big muscles with training, vitamins and prayer.
