Booker T Calls Out Hulk Hogan Over Controversial Vaccine Comments

Booker T & Hulk Hogan

Booker T has taken Hulk Hogan to task over his recent comments regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan recently came under fire for comments he made regarding the COVID-19 vaccine on social media. In a now deleted Facebook comment, Hogan suggested that the recent deaths of Betty White and Sidney Poitier were linked to the vaccine.

Speaking on the latest episode of his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T called out Hogan for his comments saying that he doesn’t have “a whole lot of respect” for people hold those views.

“It’s amazing some of the stuff people say when they just don’t know. I really don’t have a whole lot of respect for someone saying something like that, especially when they have no idea what happened to this person or not. Just what we are in the world today. Dammit, it could just be getting old,”

Booker went on to implore his co-host Brad Gilmore to pull him back if he strayed into making such controversial or radical comments.

“If you ever find me in that place where I’m saying something stupid and radical, please, I beg you to pull me back because I think that’s got a lot to do with a lot of these old guys going out and saying a lot of stupid stuff. I really do,”

The former World Champion closed by suggesting that following the medical advice of wrestlers might not be the wisest move.

“You definitely don’t want to be listening to a professional wrestler about your medical problems going on [laughs]. I just don’t think that’s wise,”

Jimmy Hart recently gave an update on Hulk Hogan’s health after it was reported that he was struggling with a number of issues. Hart explained that despite 12 back surgeries and a number of procedures on his knees and hips, he’s doing well and improving every day.
