For years now, there has been no mention of the fact that Hulk Hogan, in addition to being one of the most famous wrestlers in the history of the discipline, has repeatedly manifested racist attitudes coming to be despised as a human being by many fans who maybe once loved his exploits in the ring.

Unfortunately, despite his excuses to try to clean up his own person, still in 2024 he falls into the same mistakes giving reason to people to initiate controversy in his confrontations, with the influencer Essence Jenai who recently told social media about a racist attitude by the Hulkster for a work project.

Essence Jenai said she was hired as an ambassador for Hulk Hogan’s "Real American" beer brand, but was quickly fired after her first day of work. Jenai later claimed that she was fired only because she is a black woman, highlighting the fact that she was replaced without problems by a white woman.

The influencer also provided evidence in the form of screenshots of a conversation she had with the person in charge of informing her of the dismissal, which reads precisely that she was informed that the dates for sponsorship with her were canceled completely, Only to find out through social media that the dates were still there, except that she and her colleague, always a black woman, were replaced by a group of white girls.

After what happened, a spokesman for the project involved wanted to give his version of events: "We are deeply disturbed by the false rumors on social media that a brand ambassador hired by a third-party marketing agency has been fired by Hulk Hogan for racial reasons.

Real American Beer simply terminated its short-term relationship with the third-party marketing agency. Hulk Hogan was not involved in that decision, and ethnicity was not the reason for the dismissal. We are in contact with the agency in an attempt to clear up the misunderstanding and incorrect information, and we believe that this false statement will be retired."
