ADDRESSING THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM TODAY: THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT HULK HOGAN SAID & WHAT WWE PRODUCED IN A VINCE MCMAHON VIGNETTE

By Mike Johnson on 2015-07-24 15:31:36
We've had a number of readers who have asked about WWE removing all trace of Hulk Hogan from their website and their licensees for his use of "the n" word in the hateful rant that The National Enquirer reported and why WWE would go to such extremes to distance themselves when they had done a vignette with Vince McMahon using the "n" word years ago with Booker T during a PPV.

To me, the difference is that what Hogan said was Terry Bollea the person using hateful remarks that have no business being spoken or used in 2015 in real life while Mr. McMahon and Booker T were characters doing something that was obviously produced to be comedy and satire as part of a WWE storyline.

The latter might have been in bad taste (and let's face it, it was) but it was done to make someone laugh. What Hogan said and did came from an evil, hurtful place and was real life, not something designed to be satirical or silly on a TV broadcast. What WWE did was similar to what "South Park" would do. What Hogan said was similar to things said by Donald Sterling. There is a huge difference there.
