A small but vocal group of recovering Hulkamaniacs has launched a public crusade against what they call “Hogan’s propaganda campaign for prayer and vitamins.”
The group, known as the Truthamaniacs, contend that Hogan “misled millions of youth on the false pretenses that saying prayers and eating vitamins would make them successful.”
In reality, the group says, both prayer and vitamins have been proven by peer-reviewed scientific study to have little-to-no real efficacy.
“At best, prayer and vitamins are useless but harmless placebos” said former Hulkamaniac and group leader Toby Gilbert of Seattle.
“At worst, prayer and vitamins are deceptive panaceas that have damaging effects on both physical and mental health. Either way, Hulk Hogan should never have promoted their use to young people worldwide.”
Gilbert says he and the other two-dozen lobbyists in the group are all former Hulkamaniacs who finally “gave up on the lies” propagated by Hogan during the 1980s.
“As a kid, I said my prayers, ate my vitamins and even lifted weights, just like Hogan told us,” said Gilbert. “Now I’m an overweight night manager at Denny’s. Where’s my fame and fortune, Hulk?”
A spokesperson for WWE denies a person named “Hulk Hogan” ever existed.
