The Rock was asked to give his thoughts on the recent racial controversy surrounding Hulk Hogan during the Ballers panel at TCA on Thursday. He's how he responded:
“I’ve known Terry for years. My dad help trained him in Florida in the 1970s, and even my uncle. I come from a long line of professional wrestlers. I didn’t know him (Terry) to be a racist. It’s one of those things where it’s not definite in terms of what he said. We’ve all talked trash. He said what he said and he’s paying the price.
