Hulk Hogan apologizes for using N-word: ‘I’m not a racist’

-

Just a month ago, WWE essentially erased Hulk Hogan from its existence after a tape from 2007 surfaced. The tape exposed Hogan for going on a seemingly racist rant.

Hogan apologized just hours after the tape surfaced, but that didn’t do much for people as the comments were still very fresh on their minds. According to Complex, he appeared on Good Morning America Monday morning to express his regret in the situation.

“I’m not a racist,” he said during the interview, “but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I’m embarrassed by it. People need to realize you inherit things from your environment. And where I grew up was south Tampa, Port Tampa, and it was a really rough neighborhood. Very low income. And all my friends, we greeted each other saying that word.”

I don’t know how much this is going to do in the eyes of most people, but I personally forgive the man. He has been punished enough by being exiled from the WWE and being publicly shamed. Maybe one day he will be remembered as The Hulkster with the 24-inch Pythons, but that day probably won’t be happen anytime soon.
