The wrestler-turned-reality TV star, who was recently involved in a radiator accident, apologizes after fans complained the published pictures of his seriously injured hand
Hulk Hogan regretted his decision to tweet several disturbing images of his burnt hand. On Monday, May 27, he took to Twitter to apologize to his followers, saying, "I apologize for posting my burned hand photos, with all the feedback I now realize I really should take a moment before I make a decision."
A day before, the 59-year-old star was rushed to the emergency room of Tampa General Hospital, Florida, after badly burning his left hand in a radiator accident. On Twitter, he kept updating his condition and posted a series of gory images of his swollen fingers.
"Just had a radiator explode on my hand, OUCH," read his first tweet that came with one of the images. He then posted two more images with captions that said, "Double Ouch," and "Triple Ouch!"
Hogan didn't stop there. He continued tweeting several other photographs that see a doctor cutting away the burnt tissue. "Dr at work," he captioned one of the pictures. "Skinned like a cat," he captioned another picture that shows his skinless bloodied fingers.
The pictures got mixed reactions from Hogan's Twitter followers. Some fans expressed their sympathy and sent their best wishes while some others said the pictures were too disgusting and awful to be published.
