Responding to a tweet from WrestleFeatures calling Hogan a “known racist,” Venis stated:

“@WrestleFeatures takes a sledgehammer to his/her credibility. These wannabe journalists are lying morons. @HulkHogan is not a racist like wf claims. The man is a sinner as are the rest of us. But he also accepted Jesus Christ as his savior. #FactsMatter #SavedByGrace”
