It has been confirmed. Hulk Hogan has been fired from the WWE, the company announced earlier today. This announcement comes after his profile was removed and even his merchandise taken off their online shop. The company released a statement.
“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.”
It is believed that they terminated Hulk Hogan’s contract after an audio recording, in which he was heard making various racist comments, such has the N-word, when he was referring to his daughter dating a black man.
Here’s what he was recorded reportedly saying :”She is making some real bad decisions now. My daughter Brooke jumped sides on me. I spent $2-3 million on her music career, I’ve done everything like a jackass for her. The one option Brooke had, Brooke’s career besides me, is [to] sell beach records. I don’t know if Brooke was f*cking the black guy’s son. I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f*cking n*ggers. But then when it comes to nice people and sh*t, and whatever.”
Hulk Hogan recently tweeted. “In the storm I release control,God and his Universe will sail me where he wants me to be,one love. HH”
But in other interviews he explained that he had been using the words nigger many times because of Booker-T and never caught heat until now.
