Hulk's Own Charity Throws in the Towel

6/23/2008 8:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The charity that Hulk Hogan fronts -- and that Nick Hogan once worked for -- just had to pull the plug on their big Fourth of July event because ... well, take a wild guess.
Hulk Hogan
The Freedom Group just 86'ed the 2008 "National Wave" -- which apparently involved a bunch of people across the country waving towels in unison at 9:00 PM on July 4 -- and blamed the Hogans. "We didn't want people entangling us into some soap opera," said Sean Chumura, one of the guys who set up the Wave, to the Beaver County (Pa.) Times. Chumura, you may remember, testified on Nick's behalf at his sentencing.

As for the Hogans, they tell TMZ, "We remain very supportive of The National Wave and look forward to participating in the event."

Hogan's manager, Darren Prince, tells TMZ Chumura and the Freedom Group "believe and love Hulk and decided it would be best to postpone the event." Also, he says the "soap opera" Chumura referred to was the "media and paparazzi that would show up purely to ask about his personal life and not the event at hand."

The Hogan family are a so unkind and they have no regard for John and his family. Nick is in jail for a short period of time
while the victim will be living on life support for the rest of their life. The worst part is they put the kid down. Linda puts Johns family down. The whole Hogan Family needs serious help. The real victim here is John, the one who will never have a real life again and by the way who served our country. God Bless John and his family and shame to the Hogans.

The Hogans should wave, wave goodbye to endorsents, wave goodbye to careers, wave goodbye to any remaining "fans", and wave goodbye to any sympathies anyone once had for them.

To #2. Yes, laugh. It's hilarious that we've harassed the Hogans so much, now charities can't even profit from them. Take from the needy, that's great.

No .. Nick is a spoiled brat rich teen who has no respect for the law. If he did that most simplest of things.. OBEY our laws!!! then this whole mess wouldn't ever have happened .. no accident, no comatose friend, no law suite .. nothing. ALL Nick had to do was OBEY the law like the rest of us.. no drinking under age... no drinking and then driving and no drag racing and speeding ... so simple and yet this 'kids' thought he didn't have to follow the rules and well... sorry but now the whole family is paying for it. Nick was old enough to make the choices he made he's old enough to deal with the consequences and if anyone thinks that what they do only effects them and not friends and family .. well lesson learned I guess.
