Hulk Hogan Apologizes For Racist Sex Tape Rant

by at .

Earlier today, we learned that Hulk Hogan was fired from the WWE following news of a racist rant that was caught on camera.

The shockingly offensive tirade appears at the end of Hogan's sex tape that was recorded in 2007 and leaked online in 2012.

In a statement issued to People magazine moments ago, Hogan apologized for 

"Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it."

"This is not who I am. 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.

"I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs." 

Considering the shocking nature of Hogan's comments, the apology will likely prove insufficient in the eyes of many wrestling fans.

Speaking about his daughter's relationship with a black man, Hogan reportedly remarked:

“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 mean, I am a racist, to a point, f*cking n*ggers. But then when it comes to nice people and sh*t, and whatever."

WWE execs have yet to comment on the their decision to their decades-long business relationship with Hogan.

Hulk Hogan Quotes

I had a real period where I had a tough, tough time. I got caught off guard with this divorce thing. I didn't see it coming. My son is doing better. I pray for my wife every day. I am very grateful because we realize how very blessed we are. Now that we are aware, we are walking in the spirit of God. We are cool. We are way cool.

Hulk Hogan

I was offered lots of [reality] shows when I was making my career comeback against The Rock, but I kept saying no. But years later, it was my daughter’s career and son’s racing career that we were thinking about. We saw the Ashlee Simpson show and Jessica Simpson’s and Lindsay Lohan on the big screen and we just didn’t haven’t a vehicle to compete. But I considered it, because this time it was about the Hogan family rather than Hulk Hogan; they all wanted to do it and I tried to warn them about what they were in for. Now look what happened.
