Hulk Hogan was canned from WWE last week after audio from a sex tape he recorded eight years ago was leaked online by Gawker. In it, the wrestling legend could be heard making racist comments. Now, Radar Online reports that he also uses antigay slurs.
According to the gossip site, “the same unauthorized sex tape that included Hulk’s bigoted attack against black people also features a disgusting section in which he unleashes the ‘F’ word and more disturbing homophobic slurs.”
In the video, Hogan tells his partner Heather Clem, wife of his former friend Bubba ‘The Love Sponge’ Clem, about an incident that happened during the taping of his short-lived reality series Hogan Knows Best.
“VH1 wanted me to do a big thing and go back to the house I grew up in,” he says. “So we knock on the door and a big fag lives there now!”
He continues: “This half-gay was enamored with [my ex-wife] Linda!”
(Just out of curiosity, what the hell is a “half-gay”?)
After the story broke, Hogan released an apology, saying he no longer believes anyone should be discriminated against because of their “race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise.”
“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,” he said.
He continued: “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.”
Hogan has a filed a $100 million lawsuit against Gawker publishing the transcript from his sex tape and violating his privacy.
We want an additional $100 million for the nightmarish visions this story has put into our heads.
