Hulk Hogan's ex-wife Linda is making waves with her controversial thoughts on the protests that have been going on the past week following the police killing of George Floyd.

Linda, who was married to Hogan until 2009, took to Twitter over the weekend to claim that the "looting" was being done across the country is the fault of "Afro Americans."

"Watching the looting, it’s all afro Americans, not sure how robbing and stealing set the record straight but if they want to be heard they need to be civilized," she wrote in one tweet.

Linda wasn't finished. In another tweet she said, "Everyone wants police to stand down, and this is what you get? How is robbing and stealing tennis shoes a protest of george floyd."

Linda not wanting police to "stand down" isn't far off from comments made by Donald Trump during a speech from the Rose Garden on Monday evening.

"If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them," Trump said.

He also called himself the "law and order president" and said he had already dispatched the military to take control of the streets of D.C.

During his speech, that enforcement could be seen on live T.V. as peaceful protestors were hit with rubber bullets and tear gas.

"I am also taking swift and decisive action to protect our great capital, Washington, D.C. What happened in the city last night was a total disgrace," Trump added.

"As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults and the wanton destruction of property."

After his speech, the president walked across the street to St. John's Church to pose with a Bible for a photo-op.

Rev. Mariann Budde, the Episcopal bishop of Washington, was furious about the move by Trump.

“I am the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and was not given even a courtesy call, that they would be clearing [the area] with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop,” Budde said.

Police officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with third degree murder and manslaughter for taking Floyd's life on May 25th. The other three officers who were on the scene were fired, but have not been charged with any crimes.
