Hulk Hogan’s ex-wife Linda Hogan recently posted a controversial tweet where she criticised African-Americans for protesting against the death of 46-year-old George Floyd. After being slammed by fans, wrestlers and celebrities, Linda Hogan deleted the tweet. However, many fans took a screenshot of the since-deleted post which revealed what Linda Hogan had written. “Watching the looting, it’s all afro Americans, not sure how robbing and stealing set the record straight but if they want to be heard they need to be civilized,” Linda Hogan had tweeted.
After Linda Hogan’s tweet went viral, AEW president Tony Khan banned her from appearing at future AEW events. “You’ve now joined your husband in being banned from all AEW shows. Congratulations,” Tony Khan replied. Wrestler Prince Nana called her remark “sickening” on Twitter while fellow wrestler and commentator AJ Kirsch wrote, “Linda Hogan, you should just go ahead and delete your entire Twitter account, not just that one tweet. You know the one.” Linda Hogan is yet to reveal why she posted the controversial tweet.
