Hulk Hogan and the n-word

There was a big controversy recently when the pro wrestler Hulk Hogan apparently appeared in some kind of sex tape uttering the n-word a few times.

Twenty years ago nobody would have given a flying fuck about it. (About his use of the n-word, that is. The sex tape might have been a different issue, but that's not the point.)

Ten years ago he might have been slightly reprimanded by the WWE, and perhaps they would have given some kind of minor press release apologizing.

Nowadays he not only gets fired from the WWE, but he gets retroactively erased completely from WWE history. He became essentially an unperson.

Enough said. I don't think I even need to comment. What can I say? The entire world is becoming a totalitarian shithole. It just won't be "Big Brother" who will be watching.
