Professional wrestler and former Hulk Hogan colleague, Booker T. Huffmann, took to Twitter on Friday to express his thoughts regarding Hogan’s recent racist rant that reportedly lead to being fired from WWE.
“20 years ago I made a huge mistake by saying something I shouldn’t have on National TV,” Huffmann wrote in a series of tweets. “It’s 2015 and the n-word should be eradicated from the English language in my opinion.”
He added, “I am shocked by the statements made by Hulk Hogan. It’s unfortunate, but that’s something that he’s going to have to deal with.”
On Friday, WWE confirmed that they cut ties with the 61-year-old wrestler, writing in a statement that the organization is “committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”
Hogan came under fire Friday morning after audio surfaced of him using the N-word while discussing his daughter, Brooke’s love life. “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n*gger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n*gger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player…I guess we’re all a little racist. F*cking n*gger.” By the way, the audio was from a sex tape he apparently did with his friend’s wife.
Not only has Hogan’s name, photos and merchandise been taken down from the WWE website, but he was also taken down from the Hall of Fame online. It is also now being reported that Hulk will not return to his wrestling reality television series, Tough Enough.
