Considering the circumstances, does anyone find it a little odd that WWE has decided to induct Snoop Dogg into the same HOF that they erased Hogan from?

As I am sure everyone here knows, Snoop has a long history of using the "N" word in a derogatory manner in a public setting. 

Here is an example from one of his albums.  (The first 60 seconds of this clip is an example) **Language Warning Here**:

I am a little surprised I haven't come across anything on this topic, but does anyone else find this a little hypocritical/odd?

No blacks get a free pass using the word. Anyone else does not.

Snoop uses it in the context of his art. Or something.

I think WWE only cares about the opinions of their sponsors and money.  It is the suggestion made by some that WWE has some sort of moral standard in regards to their handling of conduct that is preposterous.
 
With all of the mainstream media buzz that surrounds Wrestlemania, what would they do if someone called them on this during an interview?
 
If someone in the media were to walk up to Vince, Stephanie, or HHH during an interview and ask this question, how in the world would they respond?
 
“Isn’t it hypocritical of the WWE to induct Snoop Dogg into it’s Hall of Fame, considering his checkered past and wide spread public and intentional use of racial slurs in his recordings when Hulk Hogan was removed for the use of the same word in an isolated incident in a private setting?”
 
Again, how would they respond to that? ?  I’d love to hear Vince try to talk his way out of that one.

I bet there would be a "glitch" right after the word hypocritical was mentioned

When Snoop uses that word he's just complimenting somebody on their drumming skills.
