— On Twitter, Awesome Kong responded to the news of Bubba the Love Sponge’s release from TNA with the following: “Kongfucious says: Karma is a bitch… named Kong!!!!”
Kong appeared on The Cowhead Show last week only to be “ambushed” by Bubba the Love Sponge during a call-in. The shock job fired a number of racially-charged remarks towards Kong, which led to his subsequent termination from the company.
