Hulk Hogan Is Getting Duped On Twitter

By David Heim 

Hulk Hogan has had a rough week or so. After spewing out some racist comments last week and getting taken to task by the media, Hogan was let go by his long-time employer, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

The former WWE World Champ has since apologized. So where is the first place to go to help repair your image? Social media of course!

Ehh, maybe not.

Someone on Twitter created a fake account, sending tweets to Hogan professing their support for him in wake of the recent controversy, using images of European soccer players. Hogan, unaware of who these people are, is retweeting the tweets.

That's Liverpool defender Kolo Toure, if you were unaware.

And apparently Drake and Rio Ferdinand are being thrown into the fray as well.

How do you not know who Drake is? You're better than that Hulk Hogan.
