Ah, yeah that would be hard to defend, jesus fuck. I read the original report at http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/07/24/report-wwe-scrubs-all-mentions-of-hulk-hogan-in-wake-of-controversial-n-word-audio.html wich has since been updated with the comment you mentioned.
Yeah, here's what The Enquirer reported:
In a joint story that they broke with RadarOnline.com, the Enquirer claims that Hogan made numerous racist remarks on the tape with Clem including:
About his daughter Brooke he is quoted as saying, ”She is making some real bad decisions now. My daughter Brooke jumped sides on me. I spent $2-3 million on her music career, I’ve done everything like a jackass for her. The one option Brooke had, Brooke’s career besides me, is [to] sell beach records."” They claim Hogan was mad because a "black billionaire guy" had offered to fund her music career. They then quoted Hogan as saying, “I don’t know if Brooke was f*****g the black guy’s son. I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f*****g n*****s. But then when it comes to nice people and s***, and whatever."” They claim he later said, "I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*** some n*****, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n***** worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. F*****g n*****.”
Once that got to WWE, boom, gone. This is from the sex tape. They claim there's more damaging stuff on there too. Beyond the vileness of what he said, there's the stupidity of filming it, knowing he was being filmed and saying it. I almost said suing Gawker because that's where this is coming from the court documents, but honestly? Once the tape was out, even if he did nothing, he was fucked. He's admitted he said this stuff and apologized but....forget it, career over. Paula Dean was destroyed just by admitting she'd used the n-word in her life, here you've got a whole racist rant.
