Granted, he's rock star status for the better part of 50 years, even though Motorhead has more of a cult following than superstardom. Anyways, there's an interesting part in the documentary that shows that he's a HUGE Nazi memorabilia collector. I heard he even has Hitler's wife's hairbrush. Part of his regular attire is the Iron Cross, which granted existed before the Nazi party, but is now synonymous with the 3rd Reich.
Lemmy obviously didn't hold the same beliefs as the Nazi party but still, I did find it a bit weird that Zahra gets fired for a Nazi pic (which was obviously tongue and cheek, with the My Little Pony) from a few years back, yet Lemmy gets the nice send off for doing HHH's themes. Heck, Big Vis was part of the company for years, and I don't even think he got a nice sendoff, just a small write up in the news section.
I know HHH is/was a huge Lemmy fan too, obviously, so he's got the clout for the nice tribute and (hopefully) celebrity HOF entry, but I do think there's hypocrisy going on
God damn do wrestling fans love to cry hypocrisy. If girl I never heard of got fired over some Nazi pic then I'm guessing WWE didn't see much value in her in the first place. There's no reason to connect it to Lemmy, someone who was never employed by WWE. You may think that everyone should be treated exactly the same by everyone in your fantasy land but that's not the way the real world works. I'm guessing it doesn't actually work that way in your own world. For example, if someone you just met was messing around with you and called you a homo you probably wouldn't take too kindly to that but if your best friend who you'd been hanging out with for years did it you probably wouldn't care. At your job a longtime hard working employee might be able to get away with taking a extra five minutes at lunch. The guy who just started might not get that leeway. The point is you can't expect every single situation to be treated the same way.
Sorry if I overreacted to the topic but honestly this was my first reaction after reading it.
