As we noted earlier, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan finally broke silence and addressed the controversy he was involved in, that got him fired from WWE.
Hulk Hogan apologized to the fans and said the following:
“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.” However, WWE doesn’t want to bring Hulk Hogan back to the company at this point of time and below is what a WWE spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter:
“At this time, the WWE remains steadfast in its decision.”
