WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, already tainted by past controversies and allegations of racism, is now facing fresh accusations that could further tarnish his reputation. Influencer Essence Jenai has claimed that Hogan fired her as an ambassador for his ‘Real American Beer’ due to her race. In response, Hogan’s spokesperson has strongly denied these allegations.

Jenai alleged that Hogan hired her as an ambassador only to dismiss her the next day upon discovering she is Black. She took to social media to share her experience, uploading photos and detailing her sudden dismissal.

Jenai explained that her contract was intended to last a week. However, after promoting the brand for just one day on July 2nd, Hogan allegedly canceled her contract. On July 3rd, she was replaced by other ambassadors who were white. Jenai also shared a text message from Hogan’s team indicating that Hogan wanted to cancel the events completely. However, she claimed this was untrue, as Hogan continued the events with the new ambassadors.

A representative of ‘Real American Beer’ issued a statement via Sean Ross Sapp, addressing Essence Jenai’s allegations against Hulk Hogan. The representative vehemently denied the allegations, labeling them as false rumors. They clarified that ‘Real American Beer’ had merely terminated its short-term relationship with a third-party marketing agency and that Hulk Hogan had no involvement in this decision, nor was race a factor.


“We are deeply troubled by the false rumor circulating on social media that a brand ambassador hired by a third-party marketing agency was terminated by Hulk Hogan for racial reasons. Real American Beer simply ended its short-term relationship with the third-party marketing agency. Hulk Hogan was not involved in that decision, and race was not a factor. We are in communication with the agency to clear up the misunderstanding and incorrect information, and we believe this false statement will be withdrawn.”

These allegations come at a time when Hulk Hogan is working to rebuild his brand, and they certainly did him no favors. However, it has now been made clear that the accusations are not true. Consequently, it appears that Hulk Hogan will not need to personally respond to these claims.
