Gawker Blasts Hulk Hogan After N-Word Apology: ‘Finally Been Exposed as the Hypocrite He Is’

“He certainly has a lot to apologize for,” website spokesperson tells TheWrap

Gawker responded on Monday to Hulk Hogan‘s apology and plea for forgiveness on “Good Morning America” in light of racist comments he made about his daughter’s boyfriend.

Hulk Hogan certainly has a lot to apologize for. He’s finally been exposed as the hypocrite he is,” a Gawker spokesperson told TheWrap.

“I’m not a racist, I never should have said what I said; it was wrong, I’m embarrassed by it,” the wrestling legend said during his first TV appearance on Monday since being terminated by the WWE in July

Hogan explained that he grew up in an environment where the N-word was tossed around casually, and pleaded with his fans to forgive him.

“Oh, my gosh. Please forgive me. Please forgive me,” he said. “I think if you look at the whole picture of who Hulk Hogan is, you can see over all the years that there’s not a racist bone in my body.”

The wrestling legend said that the entirety of his life and career shouldn’t be judged on a series of poor comments.

“If everybody at their lowest point was judged on one thing they said and let’s just say in high school, you may have said one bad thing and all of a sudden, your whole career was wiped out today because of something you said 10 or 20 years ago, it’d be a sad world. People get better every day. People get better,” Hogan concluded.
ABC’s Amy Robach didn’t bring up the lawsuit Hogan filed against Gawker during their interview. Hogan sued the website for $100 million over a sex tape Gawker revealed featuring Hogan. The case goes to court in early 2016.
