WWE Hulk Hogan / Paige; Paradigms

What world do we live in where an Icon of the sport, and an obviously not racist man, can be videotaped saying the N word, in his own bed in his own house in private to a woman he just finished having sex with, in a context where he was looking for emotional support because his wife left him for his sons best friend with his daughter was dating a "thug"...gets him wiped from the Hall of Fame and fired.

Yet, some whinny little millennial brat can take a money shot on a championship belt and record it herself but get emotional support from the company?

One is a tired broken soul reaching out for help and getting taken advantage of my ones he trusts most. The other is self entitled slut showing blatant disregard for the company, it's legacy, it's employees, and it's fans.

I don't like the world we live in.
