Hulk Hogan Hulk Hogan

In an interview with Good Morning America, a humble and repentant Hulk Hogan asked for forgiveness after a video from eight years ago surfaced that showed him going on a racist tirade that resulted in him being fired from the WWE.

Hogan said that he made the comments "at the lowest point of my life" and explained that the Southern culture he grew up in influenced his using the N-word "like it was nothing."

In the interview, he went on to explain, "I'm not a racist, I never should have said what I said. It was wrong, I'm embarrassed by it...Please forgive me. I'm a nice guy, not the Hulk Hogan who rips his shirt off...I'm Terry Bollea. I'm just a normal man."
