Vinnie Hacker addressed claims of using a racial slur
Vinnie is very offended by people’s claims. He was frustrated that someone just assumed that he said a racial slur while he was just saying a fan’s name. Hacker tweeted on the 14 of July and said that he can’t even catch a f***ing break. He sounded pretty mad in his tweet and rightfully so because allegations like these can ruin a man’s career and life. He also had an answer for the people who just tell him to ‘ignore it’. Hacker asked those people to shut up and let him live his life. Vinnie also said that it’s starting to feel like everyone is against me.

Some people, however, weren’t quite convinced that Vinnie was feeling this way so he asked him if he said the word or not:
Vinnie also posted a video of him during the live stream and on the video, it was written ‘so there’s a video of Vinnie supposedly saying the N-word going around but he didn’t. Here’s the proof’. We are assuming that a fan made this video on TikTok. Vinnie posted the video on his Twitter and wrote in the caption ‘btw’. By doing so, he has clarified the situation as best as he could.
