Hulk Hogan is not a racist

Hulk Hogan defended by friends, family after racist remarks.

Only last week, Matt Cooper revealed how he was almost punched by Rodman after the basketball star downed vodka and “any drink he could get his hands on” during their high profile trip to North Korea. This week, a transcript of Hogan ranting about a man who was dating his daughter Brooke was leaked, and it is said the star – who has since apologised and thanked fans for their support – used the n-word several times.Despite professional wrestling legend Hulk Hogan being dropped by the WWE and scrubbed from its website for racist remarks made nearly a decade ago, he’s still got folks in his corner.

Although the company has cut all ties with the Hall of Famer amid the controversy, many fans, family and friends have reached out to defend him and he is grateful for their kind words. Speaking ahead of the release of the movie ‘Dennis Rodman’s Big Bang in Pyongyang’, which features the radio presenter, Cooper explained how the former NBA star turned nasty. “He started shouting and roaring in my face asking me what did I know about writing a book. Young is infamous amongst wrestling fans for the Mass Transit incident, when an untrained 17-year-old lied about his age and experience to get a match with the grappler in Extreme Championship Wrestling.

HH (sic)” One fan had written that they “highly doubt” that the wrestling star was racist, to which Hogan responded: “yo King thank you my brother,that’s not who I am,only love. As far as they were concerned I was only over there to do a documentary on the game.” Speaking about the moment that led him to be encircled by North Korea officials as Rodman stormed off he said: “It was the scariest moment of my life. The company did not give a reason, but issued a statement July 24, 2015, saying it is “committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.” Wrestling stars Mick Foley, who wrestled under a number of personas, and Glenn Gilbertti, who wrestled as “Disco Fever,” both tweeted support for Hogan.

It was not a case of being afraid of Denis Rodman but I didn’t know how the North Koreans would react,” he said, adding that he could have been detained had authorities felt threatened by his undisclosed project. “Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. But then when it comes to nice people and sh*t, and whatever.” He is alleged to have said: “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*** some n*****, I’d rather have her marry an eight-foot-tall n***** worth a hundred million dollars. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. She wrote, in part, “Just like you and I, things we don’t mean can sometimes slip.” Those words that slipped were uncovered as a part of Hogan’s $100 million personal injury lawsuit against Gawker media for publishing footage from an alleged sex tape featuring Hogan online. When searching for Hogan’s profile online and attempting to access it that way, an error message appears which reads: “You are not authorised to access this page.” An audio clip had surfaced online in which Hogan repeatedly uses the n-word during an interview discussing his early career and the use of the word on screen, although it appears this is from around 2012 and not the incident leading to the controversy.
