WWE has terminated its contract with Hulk Hogan after an audio tape emerged of him launching a racist tirade littered with the n-word complaining about his daughter’s sex life.
The 61-year-old pro wrestler, whose real name is Terry Bollea, made the comments in a recording which recently emerged as part of a legal battle. It features him repeating the phrase ‘f**king n*****s’ several times.
The recording, the contents of which were reported by Radar Online, features Hogan making a string of racist jibes to Heather Clem, a friend’s wife whom he was filmed having sex with in 2012.
Claims: According to Radar Online, Hulk Hogan made a hateful tirade in which he said: ‘I am a racist, to a point, f**king n****rs’
‘Target’: Hogan’s alleged rant is centered on his daughter Brooke, pictured above, whom Hogan seemed to think was having sex with a black man – a notion he appeared to struggle with
Shortly after the contents of the tape became public, Hogan admitted that the tape, recorded in 2007, was real and said his words were ‘offensive’ and ‘unacceptable’.
According to Radar, the audio features him complaining about his daughter Brooke, 27, who was trying to launch a music career.
He said that ‘a black billionaire guy’ had offered to bankroll her, then speculated about her sex life’.
Hogan told Clem: ‘I don’t know if Brooke was f**king the black guy’s son… I mean, I don’t have double standards.
‘I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f**king n****rs. But then when it comes to nice people and s**t, and whatever.’
He continued: ‘I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f**k some n****r, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n****r worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player!
‘I guess we’re all a little racist. F***king n****r.’

WWE did not explicitly link its termination of Hogan’s contract to the tape. But just hours before news of the apparent contents broke, web pages which recently featured videos, biography and imagery of Hogan were yanked from the organization’s site.
In a statement confirming the termination, the WWE reiterated its commitment to ‘celebrating individuals from all backgrounds’.
A statement said: ‘WWE 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.’

After the tape became public, Hogan released a statement apologizing.
The response, sent to People magazine, said: ‘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… This is not who I am’
Radar said that transcripts of the conversation were filed in a Florida court, where Hogan is suing Gawker Media for publishing part of a 2012 video which allegedly shows Hogan having sex with Clem.
