Hulk Hogan has been erased from WWE (go check for youself on their website) as of last Friday, July 27th, for a racist rant in which he claimed he was racist “to an extent” and used the phrase “fucking niggers.”
WWE issued this statement:
WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan). WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.
In an apology he later issued in People Magazine, Terry Bollea aka Hulk Hogan, stated:
Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. This not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise.
The circumstances revolve around an alleged sex tape involving Hogan’s daughter, according to TMZ. And according to his lawyer, Hogan resigned from WWE because he didn’t want his family to suffer from his mistakes.
Hulk Hogan allegedly said:
I mean, I’d rather if she was going to fuck some nigger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall nigger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player…I guess we’re all a little racist. Fucking nigger.
I wonder what Mr. T thinks off all this.
