Hulk Hogan is one of professional wrestling’s most controversial figures. The WWE Hall of Famer is frequently getting himself in trouble with the things that come out of his mouth. The Hulkster recently made a very odd comment about the deaths of two beloved celebrities.

Hogan made a statement on Facebook about the deaths of actors Betty White and Sidney Poitier. Hulk said that vaccines probably had something to do with their deaths. It was never mentioned in his comments that Betty was 99 and Poitier was 94 when they passed.

Hulk Hogan began trending on Twitter as fans dragged him relentlessly over his inane comment. Many pointed out the anti-vaccination rhetoric being used by Hogan. The firestorm of criticism quickly became a hot topic of discussion.

“Hulk *Hogan is anti-vaxx, thus continuing the trend of steroid enthusiasts worrying about the possible adverse effects of a life-saving vaccine. Cool.”


“Hulk Hogan bent over for years injecting steroids into his posterior & probably by other men and women for decades, wants to talk about injecting vaccines? Betty White will live more years on this planet than he will. He probably has massive heart damage.”

“hulk hogan is anti jab. no needles for the hulkster. never. not once has his leathery skin been pierced with a hypodermic needle. a shot? not this man.”

“And just like that Sarah Palin is an authority on sex and Hulk Hogan is a scientist. Urine trouble, America.”

Hulk Hogan has been known to exaggerate the truth. Telling wrestling stories and sharing completely false ideas about the dangers of a life-saving injection is very different. The fans are letting the Hulkster know that they think his take was absolutely horrible.
