After the entire Bill Cosby fiasco that’s shattered our ’80s childhood memories forever, famed wrestler Hulk Hogan is now the next star to get his legacy tarnished. Hulk Hogan is in the middle of a $100 million lawsuit with Gawker since the site released his sextape. Overnight, WWE removed any mention of his from its official sites, including merchandise and all.
However, sources such as MediaTakeOut claim that the scrubbing is due to Hogan’s racial tirade back in 2012.
An old clip popped up from an interview Hogan did on DJ Whoo Kid’s radio show where he mentions that Booker T called him a “n-gger” on live TV once. He says that while living in Miami he freely used the word in rappers’ company, like Birdman, Lil’ Wayne and The Game. There are also rumors that he used the “N-word” against The Rock, although there is no audio to confirm.
While little else has been confirmed, Hogan did take to Twitter with a spiritual message:
UPDATE: WWE confirmed that it has terminated Hulk Hogan’s contract. Statement from WWE:
“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.”
