Hulk Hogan Fired by WWE, Reportedly Over Racist Remarks

Hulk Hogan‘s contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has been terminated and it is reportedly over racist remarks of his that are resurfacing.

“WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan),” a statement from the company read. “WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”

Almost all references of Hogan on the WWE website have been removed and his name was pulled from the list of WWE alumni and hall of famers.

There are reports that claim the firing happened because of a radio interview from 2012 that recently surfaced online. In the interview, Hogan openly uses the N-word and questioned why he gets heat when he says it.
