    We all know about the Hulk Hogan's use of the N-word in a sex tape from 2007.

    Without diving into the armchair psychology, watch the video... does it come off a genuine? Or just trying to save face?

    I'd be sorry if I lost almost everything I had because of a leaked sex tape that contained me saying a bad word.

    Can't watch the video at work but he's just trying to save face of course, what he said you can't defend, you can apologise but he still said it.

    He's just trying to save face...but who cares either way. I'm sick of these forced apologies and people trying to create pariahs. Wow..a 60 year old bald white dude with a handle bar mustache dropped the N-bomb in private. Color me shocked...and deeply offended. Give it a year, and when Real American hits on RAW every wrestling fan of every color will be pointing their fingers to the high heavens, say some prayers, chomp down some vitamins, and drink some milk.

    No, but I also don't care what he said. His commentary means nothing in my life.

    No way; Hulk Hogan's a compulsive liar.

    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me the other ten thousand times, one hundred, and twelve times, and I'm a fucking dumbass.

    I was pissed because I was a fan when I was likkle. But Hogan could have been anyone having a bad day. While I was going through my divorce the shit the flew out of my mouth about women was enough to make Atheist say: "Chill."

    If anybody would have recorded one of those rants I would have been fucked for ALL TIME.

    I also think we expect too much from celebrities.

    This all depends how Booker T feels about this situation.

    I'm not a Hulk fan, never really was.

    But when this whole thing erupted a few months ago, it seemed like the outrage was overblown in the media. Yes he said it, yes it's inexcusable, but what it left out was any context of his fame of mind at the time.

    His family was falling apart, his son was being charged with manslaughter, his daughter's singing career that he invested millions into was in the crapper, and he was in the middle of a savage divorce.

    Now... is he worthy of criticism? You're damn right.

    How about a punishment? Definatley.

    But is it beyond forgiveness, and the name 'Hulk Hogan' should be synonymous with 'racist' forever?

    No.

    As far as the apology goes, it seems clich

    Who cares? I don't need every single person I like in entertainment to have the same morality I have or pretend to have.
    It is funny because if you ask one of the people persecuting him if Tom Cruise was (still) gay they would say "who cares it is none of your business" well same shit applies here. Hypocrite mfers.

    Bingo. They're human and make mistakes as well.

    I'd be amazed if each and every one of the media pundits, and WWE executives that fired him and removed him from the HOF, hadn't said the word once in their lives with malice and in private.

    One thing I'd like to add, is I'm not a Jon Jones fan. Whatsoever. But do I take personal pleasure in the news of his personal troubles and problems with the law? Absolutely not. I may joke about it and laugh at the hilarious shoops. But do I want him to become a better man and get over his addictions and personal demons to make a return to the octagon? You're damn right I do.

    Everybody has said something in private that would destroy any potential celebrity or political career...which is why the outrage of shit like this is always so silly and hypocritical.

    I really wonder where the western worlds need for outrage stems from...is it just the joy of getting with a group of people in person or online and ganging up on somebody?

    1. I wouldn't mind holding every one to a very high ethical standard if it weren't so selectively applied.

    2. What Hogan said was boorish. Did anyone think he was refined?
