Hulk Hogan Isn't Racist, Just Stupid

by at .  Updated at .

A red-eyed Hulk Hogan (real name: Terry Bollea) donned his finest palm tree knit and a head hanky for a Mach 23rd appearance on The View.

The former pro wrestler won a lawsuit against Gawker Media for the 2012 publication of a sex tape in which he bedded the wife of his former best friend.  

The Florida jury awarded Hogan $140 million in damages, which Gawker's lawyers plan to appeal.

Hogan's lawyer, Reno, NV-based David Houston spent the majority of the interview answering the co-hosts' questions, but Hogan himself spoke when Sunny Hostin brought up his using the racial slur, "n*****."

“It’s probably the stupidest thing I ever said,” Hogan told Hostin. “The people who know me know I’m not a racist.”

Hogan pointed out that his second marriage to Jennifer McDaniel was performed by an "Afro-American" minister, and that he attends an "Afro-American church."

Hogan also defended the WWE's decision to terminate their professional relationship.

“Even the WWE knows I’m not a racist,” he explained. “They had to do what was best for business, for their company.”

Hogan said the reason he used the term was because he was furious about his daughter, Brooke's relationship with a "black guy's son" and the fact that she wasn't taking his advice.

“I said something horrible and I will live with it forever,” he said, “but that’s not me, that’s not who I am.”  

All in all, it was a pretty civilized interview.  No one got fired up, no one cut the other person off.  

Well played, Hulk 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.
