WWE Hall of Famer, Hulk Hogan has courted controversy by claiming that the world may not need a vaccine for the dreaded coronavirus, claiming that the pandemic is an act of God.
The 66-year old compared the crisis to the “plagues of Egypt” and says God has “taken away everything we worship”.
The wrestling icon, real name Terry Bollea, made the claims in a lengthy Instagram post.
He wrote: “Word up, can you handle the truth my brother only love.
“In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship.
“God said, ‘you want to worship athletes, I will shut down the stadiums. You want to worship musicians, I will shut down Civic Centers. You want to worship actors, I will shut down theaters.
“You want to worship money, I will shut down the economy and collapse
the stock market. You don’t want to go to church and worship Me, I
will make it where you can’t go to church.
“‘If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and
pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will
hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Hogan, who recently suffered a bicep tear, then suggest that the world did not need a vaccine for the virus, with medical and scientific
experts working extra hours on developing the best way to combat the coronavirus.
He wrote: “Maybe we don’t need a vaccine, Maybe we need to take this time of isolation from the distractions of the world and have a
personal revival where we focus on the ONLY thing in the world that really matters. Jesus.”
It is the second time within a week the Hulkster has got religious over the coronavirus on social media.
Earlier, the former WWE champion, who last month reached a confidential settlement in his £94.5million lawsuit against those he accused of conspiring to leak a sex tape, highlighted a bible passage.
His posted on Instagram: “Whenever I hold back the rain or send locusts to eat up the crops or send an epidemic on my people if they
pray to me and repent and turn away from the evil they have been doing, then I will hear them in heaven, forgive their sins, and make
their land prosperous again.”
