Racial tensions are reaching an all-time high again here in the USA, and Hulk Hogan found out the hard way that using the “n-word” is no laughing matter.
The legendary wrestler was removed from all WWE media on Friday morning (July 24) because of an interview he gave DJ Whoo Kid’s Sirius XM Shade 45 show back in 2012, during which he used the racial slur while recounting his interactions with Booker T, Lil Wayne and Birdman while partying in Miami.
After a sex tape in which he appeared was released over the internet, Hulk Hogan has lawyered up and is suing those allegedly responsible for the leak.
The pro wrestler held a press conference on Monday with his attorneys to announce his legal plans. One lawsuit is against longtime family friend Bubba the Love Sponge and ex-wife Heather Clem, who is featured in the tape, for allegedly recording the encounter. A second suit attacks the website Gawker, who posted a clip from the tape earlier this month.
