Last week, Hulk Hogan was abruptly fired from the WWE after audio footage leaked of him using the n-w0rd.
The audio footage was part of a sex tape that was leaked by Hogan’s ex-girlfriend. In the video, Hogan loses it as he talks about the fact that his daughter Brooke is dating a black man, who he referred to as the n’word.
Though Hogan was disrespecting her boyfriend in the footage, Brooke Hogan spoke out this week to defend her father.
“Seriously… We all say dumb s–t in the privacy of our own homes. Don’t forget who influenced you so POSITIVELY when you were young,” she wrote on Twitter, according to New York Daily News. “Big up to the people who don’t act perfect. The people with no egos. Makes me love you more.”
Brooke also shared a photo of her father on the cover of Sport’s Illustrated along with the caption, “This is something that can never be “scrubbed.” He changed lives…In a positive way.”
We applaud Brooke Hogan for having the courage to stand by her father in the face of this liberal backlash. We support you, Hulk Hogan!
