Report: WWE Fires Hogan for Alleged N-Word Rant on Leaked Sex Tape [Updated].

WASHINGTON — World Wrestling Entertainment has terminated its contract with legendary wrestler Terry Bollea, AKA Hulk Hogan, although the reason behind the decision is mysterious.

“Keep it up, my n—-!” McMahon says as he walks away past a fuming Booker T. “Tell me he didn’t just say that,” Booker T seethes for the camera. “Surely everyone would recognize the 2005 segment was an outlandish and satirical skit involving fictional characters, similar to that of many scripted television shows and movies,” a WWE “I am shocked by the statements made by Hulk Hogan. WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide,” the company said in an official statement sent to CBSSports.com on Friday.” A report has surfaced from National Enquirer and Radar Online claiming “sordid pillow talk caught on an unauthorized sex tape includes a revolting conversation in which the pro wrestling icon unleashed a filthy bigoted attack, littered with the N-word and other disgusting racial insults..” According to National Enquirer, on the tape, Hogan uses the N-word several times while discussing his daughter, Brooke Hogan, and who she may or may not be dating. The footage is believed to be the same over which Gawker Media is currently entangled in litigation with Hogan; leaked by Gawker in 2012, but reportedly filmed in 2008.

His lawyer has clarified Hogan resigned from WWE, and was not fired, though the language in WWE’s above statement indicates otherwise. “Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation,” Hogan’s statement reads. “It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it,” Hogan said in a statement exclusively to PEOPLE. 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,” Hogan told PEOPLE. “I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.”
