Legendary wrestler and American icon Hulk Hogan was fired by the WWE after a tape surfaced of Hogan using racial slurs in reference to his daughter’s love life.
The Hulkster released a apology earlier today to People magazine stating, “…It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it…This is not who I am…”

In the time since the tape has been released, the WWE has wiped everything to do with him off of their website and have removed them from their Hall of Fame.
Hulk Hogan's racist rant is just another sad example of orange privilege.

Hogan gained popularity in the late 80’s and 90’s with the rise of professional wrestling in America. Since then Hogan has appeared in several movies including “Rocky 3” and starred in his own VH1 reality show in the mid-2000’s titled “Hogan Knows Best” with his family.
