Dennis Rodman defends Hulk Hogan: There isn’t a racist bone in his body

Dennis Rodman rushed to the defense of Hulk Hogan after a report came out Friday morning, claiming Hogan made racist comments, including using the the n-word multiple times, on video.

“I’ve known @HulkHogan for 25 years,” Rodman tweeted.

He then added, “There isn’t a racist bone in that mans body.”

Rodman then tried to get others in on the support for Hogan, tweeting at Scottie Pippen, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal and Mike Tyson and saying, “Lets lend our support to the Hulkster @HulkHogan who most certainly is not a racist.”

The 61-year-old was fired by WWE following the release of the court documents.

Rodman and Hogan have been a team for some time, having worked for  WCW and being paired together against Karl Malone. Rodman was also part of Hogan’s nWo (New World Order) and even once appeared on Hogan’s reality show Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling. So perhaps it’s no surprise that these two are once again standing beside each other.

But then again, Rodman is no stranger to controversial figures and has even stood behind the likes of his friend Kim Jong Un, the North Korean dictator. “Guess what, I love him,” Rodman said of the supreme ruler during a trip back in 2013 (one of many trips). “The guy’s really awesome.”
