Hulk Hogan Fired From WWE Over Racist N-Word Rant

You’re fired, brother! *rips shirt*


Legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan issued an apology Friday after the National Enquirer released a transcript of statements he made that included racial slurs.

The remarks were recorded in an “unauthorized sex tape,” according to the Enquirer, and included the n-word in reference to the dating life of his daughter, Brooke. He has since apologized.

“Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation,” Hogan says in a statement. “It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it.”

He goes on to say that “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.

“It is not who I am. I continue to work every day to improve as a person, and this matter is an important learning experience for me in that regard. As a result I am resigning from my contractual relationship with the WWE.”

Sounds good, however…

…his former employer said it ended its business relationship with Hogan.

“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,” the organization said in a statement.

Fans noticed that Hogan has been removed entirely from the WWE’s website, including from its Hall of Fame.

There is no sympathy in our hearts for the Hulkster. Clearly he wasn’t the pillar of Christian values as evidenced by his philandering and subsequent divorce. This is just the cherry on top of his azzhole sundae…
