The former wrestling champ Hulk Hogan who lives in Tampa in Florida has criticised hurricane Irma victims as being crybabies for complaining about not having water or power in a series of tweets that have since been deleted. In the tweets he said:
“No water, no power, crybabies, everyone’s complaining…”
However, despite calling a lot of people crybabies, Hulk Hogan did offer his prayers for those hit hardest by the hurricane by adding:
“…these people have no clue how bad it could be, Praying for those that got hit hard, lost homes, lives, businesses, lost everything.”
His tweets come after eight elderly people died in a care home in Florida after losing power and air conditioning. Many have criticised his tweets with one twitter user commenting:
“60,000 homes without power here, haven’t seen a crybaby yet, just people helping their neighbors. and what are you doing to help?”
Even his own fans commenting about his poor use of words, with one fan tweeting:
“I think I know what you meant, but poor choice of words…brother,” one said.
Earlier in the week Hulk Hogan reported that his house suffered ” a lot of damage” but also added that “everyone was safe” after the hurricane struck his own house.
Was Hulk Hogan right to call people without power or water crybabies when others have lost even more? Or did he just put his foot in it?
