It has been announced that Australian actor Chris Hemsworth has been cast to play wrestling giant Hulk Hogan in an upcoming Netflix biopic and the world is left asking… um, what the heck is wrong with you people in Hollywood?

Many wrestling fans don’t get this casting. For one, as buffed as Chris Hemsworth is, the Aussie actor is real-world buffed, not super jacked like Hogan was at his 1980s peak. In other words, the actor seems to be very fit – extremely, even – but not roided out like Hogan was. In fact, Hemsworth almost looks like a norm-sized fellow compared to Hogan in the 1980s.

Then there is the pretty factor. Hulk Hogan is nothing if not a beastly looking chap, let’s face it. Yet, Hollywood is picking a pretty-faced actor like Hemswoth to portray the famously homely wrestler?

It just seems like a bad fit all the way around. And wrestling fans are just as confused.

Leading the criticism was wrestling commentator Bryan Alvarez who insisted that compared to Hogan, Hemsworth “just looks like a normal guy,” Daily Mail reported.

“He’s big, and yes he’s got long blonde hair,” Alvarez said of Hemsworth, “but, have you seen Hulk Hogan in the ’80s? He’s at least twice the size of Thor!”

Alvarez also felt that Hogan should be portrayed by an American actor, not an Aussie like Hemsworth.

Other fans jumped to Twitter to slam Netflix for the casting move.

The film reportedly will not cover the wrestler’s entire life to date, only the period in the 1980s that comprise the rise of Hulkamania.

Los Angeles Lakers Send $4.6 Million Paycheck Protection Program Loan Back

Published

With so many small businesses suffering as a result of the shutdowns many states have implemented in order to deal with the spread of the coronavirus, the federal government decided to try and ease the burden by putting the Paycheck Protection Program in place. However, it seems that a lot of “small businesses” are getting large sums of the cash from this program and it makes no sense for them to receive it. Like the Los Angeles Lakers for example. Fortunately, the team decided to give the money back, which is the right call, as other truly small companies who are struggling right now can use that cash to keep afloat and provide payment for their employees. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The Los Angeles Lakers have returned the more than $4 million the team received as part of the Paycheck Protection Program that Congress approved in response to the nationwide outbreak of the coronavirus. Once team owners learned that funds from the first installment of the federal program had been depleted, the team “repaid the loan so that financial support would be directed to those most in need,” a spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times. “The Lakers remain completely committed to supporting both our employees and the community,” the team said. President Trump signed the $2.2 trillion relief bill last month providing $349 billion in loans to small businesses who have less than 500 employees. However, it didn’t take long for the money put into the program to be tapped out. The president signed a second relief bill last week to stick another $484 billion into the program. The Lakers franchises did not answer questions from the Los Angeles Times about why it applied to the program to begin with. As of this writing, there’s no…

De Blasio And Giuliani Get Into Online Tussle Over Anti-Semitic Attacks

Published

on

Rudy Giuliani and Bill de Blasio traded blows online over the weekend about the anti-Semitic attacks that took place over the weekend in New York City. On Saturday, a man ran into the home of a rabbi and attacked folks at a Hanukkah celebration. This marked the 13th incident to happen against Jews in the city over the last several weeks, which has sparked conversations about what actions need to be taken in order to stop the hate and bloodshed. And that’s where things got heated between Giuliani and de Blasio Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Giuliani, 75, took the first swing after the attack and condemned de Blasio’s leadership in the wake of the continued attacks. He criticized the current mayor’s decision to part ways with the policies Giuliani implemented as mayor, including “broken windows theory,” which required strict enforcement of minor crimes in order to create bottom-up compliance to stop severe crimes like homicide. The policy has been criticized by some because it can lead to distrust of law enforcement for cracking down on less serious crimes. He tweeted, “Possibly the worst Mayor in NYC, de Blasio, has watched anti-semitism rapidly metastasize, like a cancer, & is too unconcerned or lazy to ‘nip it in the bud.’ Otherwise called Broken windows theory, which should be brought back. A COWARD in that he has yet to condemn anti-semities in his own party who support BDS & similar movements, who’s main objective is to destroy the Jewish Homeland.” https://twitter.com/RudyGiuliani/status/1211492937453850625 De Blasio, 58, launched a counter punch Monday morning and accused Giuliani of anti-Semitism for his remarks about Democratic donor George Soros. The president’s attorney claimed that he was “more of a Jew” than Soros, a Holocaust survivor. de Blasio wrote on Twitter, “Last night while New Yorkers came together…
