    “Hall of Fame wrestler Hulk Hogan is out at World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) after an audio recording featuring the wrestler using racist language was heard by WWE officials.

    "I guess we're all a little racist," Hogan reportedly says on the tape, before repeating the n-word in an overtly racist and inflammatory fashion.



    WWE told The National Enquirer in a statement:

    WWE has terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan).

    WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.
    The comments were discovered on the same sex tape over which Hogan is poised to go to trial with Gawker Media, which posted excerpts of the tape in 2012.

    The Enquirer reports that the conversation between Hogan and Heather Clem, wife of former friend and radio host Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, was recorded on the same tape, which remains sealed in a Florida court.”
