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.
