Hulk Hogan Apologizes for Using Racial Slurs and Calls it “Unacceptable”

on

In an exclusive with People.com, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan apologizes for using racial slurs and calls it “unacceptable” behavior. As previously reported, due to said slurs and statements that Hogan made in 2012 on a secretly filmed video tape, WWE has terminated his contract and he is no longer to be promoted by the company.

Hogan used the “N-word” multiple times while discussing guys his daughter Brooke Hogan may be sleeping with, saying that he is racist, and that if she’s going to sleep with a “N-word,” he should at least be rich, like a professional basketball player. These comments are what led to his termination from WWE.

Below are the highlights.

“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 is 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. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.”
