Hulk Hogan Fired From WWE, Apologizes For Racist Rant

Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff - Arrivals
Hulk Hogan has gotten himself into trouble…the wrestler was fired from WWE after being caught using the n-word in a newly surfaced radio interview (via The National Enquirer) .”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.” Hulk’s page on the WWE site has since been removed.

Hulk is now apologizing for the old interview. “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 told People. “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.”
