Hulk Hogan has caused controversy by suggesting the world may not need a vaccine for coronavirus and claiming a pandemic is an act of God. The deadly COVID-19 outbreak has afflicted 1.4 million people across the world and its spreading very fast. But the WWE Hall of Famer, 66, has compared the crisis to the “Plagues of Egypt” and says God has taken away everything we worship.
The Wrestling icon, who has had a lengthy list of personal problems, bizarrely made the claims in a long Instagram post. WWE legend Hulk Hogan has been active on social media since the coronavirus pandemic exploded in the U.S. Most of his posts have focused on promoting religion and finding God during this time but in his latest post of Instagram has sparked some blowback online from all across the world on social media. It was the second such Instagram post from Hogan. Days earlier, He highlighted a Bible passage from the book of Chronicles.
Hogan’s post was first met with largely positive feedback from his Instagram followers. Many commented with simply ‘Amen’ or praised the 1980’s wrestling icon for promoting religion is a way not like his promos at the height of his wrestling popularity. It was up to over 62,000 likes and had more than 2,800 total comments.
The reaction on Twitter, however, was not as universally positive. While some on the platform echoed sentiments of Hogan’s Instagram followers, there were plenty of others who thought Hogan’s comments were borderline dangerous given the mounting number of COVID-19 cases and deaths around the wor
Hogan suggested God needed people to humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, in order to forgive their sin and heal their land. “Maybe we don’t need a vaccine,” Hogan wrote. ” Maybe we need to take this time isolation from the distractions of the world and have a personal rival where we focus on the ONLY thing in the world that really matters. Jesus.”
