Hulk Hogan Terminated From the WWE Over Use of the N-Word, Wrestler Says He's Sorry


Terry Bollea a.k.a Hulk Hogan is in some deep trouble and has been scrapped from the WWE!

The wrestling organization killed its contract with the legendary wrestler after video surfaced of him using the N-word. 

Hogan is speaking out about a just-released audio transcript that features him making racist slurs about his daughter Brooke's love life. 

"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 magazine.


The transcript featuring that conversation was published online by the National Enquirer


"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," Hogan told People. 


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


Hogan was scrubbed from the WWE's website on Friday morning, with no videos or photos of the famed wrestler remaining. He was also removed from the online Hall of Fame. 

His lawyer David Houston confirmed to People that he's officially resigned from the organization.
