Hulk Hogan recently shattered many a childhood dreams after it was discovered that the iconic wrestler and celebrity figure used the n-word. Despite Black celebrities such as Marlon Wayans and Dennis Rodman coming to his defense, the damage had been done and the WWE made extensive steps to remove him from all of their branding.
Unfortunately, there have been plenty of stars who said the n-word (with the “e-r”) and while it’s not illegal to be racist, you have to be ready to deal with the consequences.
On November 17, 2006, “Kramer” was the star of one of the biggest celebrity meltdowns of all-time when he repeated called a heckler the n-word. To say it’s been a struggle finding work would be an understatement. His last film was 2007’s Bee Movie (which was written and produced by Jerry Seinfeld).
