Hulk Hogan, one of the most prolific pro wrestlers of all-time, has been fired by the WWE and had his image removed from their website following a racist rant.
The tape that caught the conversation was from 2012.
Hogan, 61, from Clearwater, was captured using the “n-word” in a conversation. The Enquirer quotes a staffer from the WWE as saying the organization “is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees.”
Hogan is no longer mentioned in the organization’s Hall of Fame. According to his Wikipedia page, Hogan was a 12-time world champion.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, was angry at his daughter Brooke during the rant.
