Hulk Hogan Retweets the Equivalent of 'I Have a Black Friend'; Doesn't Realize He Has No Black Friends

We haven’t been following the story that much because, uh, wrestling, but as most of you are no doubt aware, Hulk Hogan was fired by the WWE last week after a racist rant in which he railed against ‘fucking n*****s’ surfaced. Apparently, Hogan didn’t want his daughter, Brooke, to get involved with black men, or at least, the wrong black men.

I was going to blockquote the rant here, but I can’t. It’s just … too awful. And too inexcusable. And too goddamn racist.

Anyway, after his contract with the WWE was terminated, he took to Twitter to defend himself.

But here’s where the story gets amusing. In order to show that he has black supporters, he began retweeting the following:

What Hogan didn’t realize is that those tweets were not sincere. They were a joke. Many of those “supporters” were professional soccer players. Also, Drake.

They were having a laugh at the expense of a racist.

And that, folks, is why Twitter is as amazing as it is terrible.
