Hulk Hogan Issues an Apology for Racist Rant

July 27, 2015 2 min read

An 8-year-old audio transcript was just released of WWE superstar Hulk Hogan, in which he senselessly rants about his daughter Brooke's love life, making racial slurs that had the Internet and the WWE in a fury of anger. The WWE took action, stripping the once idolized wrestler of his connection to the billion-dollar industry; their website nil of any Hulk Hogan presence — from videos and photos to the online Hall of Fame. In a statement to PEOPLE, Hogan issued an apology, stating, "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's attorney claimed that Hogan resigned from the WWE, as a means of protecting both the industry as well as his family, while the WWE fought back with a statement saying, "WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (a.k.a. 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." Regardless of how it went down, one thing is for sure: racism is not taken lightly in 2015. A remorseful Hogan felt the same way, as he explained in his statement that "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." Do you think the WWE was too harsh with their reaction to the release of the audio transcript? Or is racism a serious subject, and consequences should be taken seriously?
