Rumor is it's damage control after a 2012 radio interview surfaced in which Hogan says the N-word!
In the interview DJ Whoo Kid — who is African American — asks Hulk if any of "any black guys" ever call him "my n***a?"
"Well, Booker T used to do that to me on TV, and every time I pull up YouTube there's that famous thing with Booker T and his brother is there and they're all talking trash, and Booker T says, 'I'm coming for ya Hogan, you n***er'–and not 'n***a,' he goes 'n***er.'"
Hogan is quoting this interview:
While this is obviously insensitive language, it could be argued he's only saying it aloud to distinguish specifically what his fellow wrestler said.
Hogan then tells DJ Whoo Kid that hanging out with rappers The Game, Lil Wayne, and Birdman, they used the word in reference to him constantly, prompting him to begin using it.
He then said he didn't understand why it was OK for them to use it in a friendly way but not him.
Listen to the interchange (below):
It sounds to us like Hulk needs to sit down with some people who can give him an education on how that word coming from his mouth could offend a lot of people.
But that may not be the worst of it.
According to some sources, the interview only got noticed because of some much worse things Hulk said in his leaked sex tape!
Transcripts of the audio — filed as part of Hogan's ongoing lawsuit over the tape — reportedly contain more use of the N-word, this time in relation to whom he thinks his daughter Brooke Hogan should be dating!
Unfortunately, we can't verify these claims as the records are currently sealed from public release.
On Saturday, Todd Fisher, and his wife, Catherine Hickland, organized a public memorial service for his sister, Carrie Fisher, and mom, Debbie Reynolds, who died just a day apart back in December.
The beautiful service was held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, and was live-streamed on Reynolds' website for all to experience.
Celebs, fans, and animals alike gathered to celebrate the lives of the legendary actresses with an event that featured a tribute song from James Blunt, a performance from the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles, a dance tribute from the Debbie Reynolds dance school, and tons of costumes and memorabilia on display.
