Hulk Hogan made a special appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday morning to address his racism controversy and ask for forgiveness in an interview with Amy Robach.
“Oh my gosh. Please forgive me. Please forgive me … 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” said Hogan who was released from his WWE last month after racist comments come to light on his leaked sex tape sex tape Heather Clem and during a jailhouse conversation with his son Nick, who was incarcerated at the time.
Hogan added: “I’m not a racist, but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I’m embarrassed by it, People need to realize that you inherit things from your environment. And where I grew up was South Tampa, Port Tampa, and it was a really rough neighborhood, very low income. And all my friends, we greeted each other saying that word.”
Hogan argued that people should not be judged by what they do at their lowest point and if everybody was defined by their darkest hour, it would be a sad world.
He concluded, “People get better every day. People get better.”
