WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America this Monday morning and finally broke silence on the recent controversy he was involved in.
Hogan had the following to say:
“Oh my gosh. Please forgive me. Please forgive me … I think if you look at the whole picture of who Hulk Hogan is, you can see over all the years that there’s not a racist bone in my body. I’m not a racist, but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I’m embarrassed by it. People need to realize that 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.”
Hogan noted that he was at a very low point in his life at that time and said people should not be judged by what they do at their lowest point and if everybody was defined by their darkest hour, it would be a sad world.
Hogan ended up by saying “People get better every day. People get better.” You can watch the video of his appearance below:
