Hulk Hogan was built to be an american hero in the world of wrestling. Turns out he was as american as Mel Gibson and Donald Sterling. Transcripts leaked of the vile tirade that became even worse than Sterling. WWE officially released him out of his contract after already erasing him from all their internet content. His name leads you to errors and pages available.
WWE official statement-
“WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”
The ENQUIRER dropped this bomb. The language from the leaks is explicit.
“I guess we’re all a little racist,”
“I don’t know if Brooke was f*cking the black guy’s son,”
“I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f*cking n*ggers. But then when it comes to nice people and sh*t, and whatever.”
“I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n*gger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n*gger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player!”
“I guess we’re all a little racist. Fucking n*gger.”
Radar and The ENQUIRER has learned explosive transcripts of the loathsome conversation have been filed in a Florida court, under seal, in a bid to prevent them from being publicly released.
But an extensive news probe uncovered five independent sources who provided the dramatic contents of the tape to this publication.
Hogans statement to People Magzine
“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,” Hogan said in a statement exclusively to PEOPLE. The transcript featuring that conversation was published online by the National Enquirer.
“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,” Hogan told PEOPLE. “I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.”
A transcript of the audio shows the wrestler repeatedly using the n-word in reference to his daughter Brooke Hogan’s dating life.
Hogan was already enmeshed in legal drama when news of the transcript leaked. The Florida trial for his high-profile lawsuit against gossip site Gawker was recently delayed until at least the fall. The star’s legal team filed a $100 million lawsuit against the site after their 2012 posting of a sex tape, made in 2008, featuring Hogan. The tape was later removed from the site.
It should never be shocking that an old white man is racist and his biggest fear in his daughter dating a black male. Hogan at 61 years of age witnessed Dr. Martin Luther King. He wintessed America’s need for change and seen the good and the bad. But just like in wrestling, Hogan was a heel (term for bad guy) in real life. Years of steroid abuse and popping pain pills always leads to the demise of a pro wrestler. Either in death or debilitating health. But the death of the character Hulk Hogan comes from a revolting place that sat inside of Terry Bollea (Hogans real name) waiting to be unleashed on the world.
