World Wrestling Entertainment has cut all ties with their most famous wrestler of all-time after the National Enquirer quoted Hulk Hogan (real name: Terry Bollea) using multiple racial slurs in sealed court transcripts.
In the transcripts, Hogan refers to black people as “f**king n***ers” and also says “I am a racist, to a point.”
The comments are reportedly transcribed from from a sex tape featuring Hogan having sex with the wife of Tampa-based radio DJ, Bubba ‘The Love Sponge’ Clem. The conversation started with Hogan discussing the business dealings of her daughter, Brooke, who is an aspiring model/singer/actress. According to Hogan, a “black billionaire” was offered to fund some of Brooke’s projects.
“I don’t know if Brooke was f**king the black guy’s son,” Hulk raved, the sources add.
“I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f**king n***ers. But then when it comes to nice people and s**t, and whatever.” …
According to sources, he said: “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f**k some n***er, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n***er worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player!
“I guess we’re all a little racist. F**king n***er.”
The Enquirer did not reveal how it obtained the transcripts. Officially, they are supposed to be sealed in a Pinellas County court as part of a $100 million lawsuit that Hogan launched against Gawker Media for the releasing the sex tape mentioned above.
The WWE confirmed the termination, stating that Hogan would not longer be associated with the company:
“WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan),” the organization told Us Weekly in a statement on Friday. “WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”
Hogan has made no official statement, other than this mysterious tweet from late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning:
In the storm I release control,God and his Universe will sail me where he wants me to be,one love. HH
