2020 has already been a very weird year for pretty much everyone, but it's been an especially strange one for wrestling icon Hulk Hogan.
In a move which literally not a single person asked for, the Hulkster took to Instagram to suggest humanity doesn't need medicine—it needs prayer.
In his post, which featured a quote from the bible attributed to Hulk himself, Hogan wrote:
"Word up, can you handle the truth my brother only love HH 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.'"
"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."
Perhaps Hulk is simply disappointed that his induction into the wrestling Hall of Fame has been delayed until August.
Or that WrestleMania had to be relocated and performed without any fans due to the global pandemic.

@Independent Mmmm...he sounds like the kind of guy whose opinion you could trust 🆘— Ian Scott (@Ian Scott) 1586272585.0
The internet wasn't quite convinced by Hogan's idea that God is punishing us with the pandemic.

Twitter let Hulk know he was being somewhat irresponsible with his words in the gentlest way.

There were also a few who felt themselves somewhat won over by Hulk's argument.

@theblaze Hulkster > Dr. Fauci— TeddyBeckersted (@TeddyBeckersted) 1586322070.0
...but on the the other side, others were scared for his mental health.
@Independent Did he take too many blows to the head?— PositronicBrain (@PositronicBrain) 1586272166.0
@Independent Maybe we don't need Hulk Hogans opinion on a medical disaster? 🤷♀️— Kravvall (@Kravvall) 1586275228.0
People were wisely thanking Hulk for his advice, but making plans to consult science as well.

@WithSpandex It gets harder & harder to defend my favorite performer of all time.— J_Short 4_Jay (@J_Short 4_Jay) 1586226554.0
Prayer or other positive vibes never hurt, Hulk...but it's only part of the answer when someone has a medical issue.
