Do you think fans will ever forgive what the Hulkster said a month ago?
A perfect case of “reaping what you sow” was being witnessed on Good Morning America this Monday morning. Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan made a special appearance on Good Morning America pleading for fans forgiveness about his racist rant he went on in the middle of July. Hogan went on to say this during the interview:
Oh, my gosh. Please forgive me. Please forgive me,” he said. “I think if you look at the whole picture of who Hulk Hogan is, you can see over all the years that there’s not a racist bone in my body.
Hogan emphasized that the footage of him using the n-word was to describe his daughter’s ex boyfriend, in which he went on to say was apart of his upbringing in south Tampa, Florida.
I’m not a racist but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I’m embarrassed by it,” he said. “People need to realize that you inherit things from your environment. And where I grew up was south Tampa, Port Tampa, and it was a really rough neighborhood, very low income. And all my friends, we greeted each other saying that word.
Other than dealing with the fact he lost fans, Hogan was dismissed from the WWE Hall Of Fame and has been banned from being associated with the multi-billion dollar storied wrestling franchise. In fact, the Hulkster expressed that he felt so much emotional distressed that he contemplated committing suicide. Here’s footage of the emotional interview that has the world shaking their heads.
