Brooke Hogan on the reason behind The Hulkster's racist rant
- In an interview with ET, Brooke Hogan, daughter of former WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, revealed why her famous father made such scandalous comments:
“When you’re mad and you’re at the lowest point in your life or you’re mad at somebody, you just choose ill-fitting words for that situation just to air your shorts out and that’s all it was,” Brooke said. “I looked at the transcripts and I was like, ‘yeah, he was pissed at me.’ It’s not who he is though. He’s not racist. Nobody would want their lowest moment to be filmed for the world to see. It’s not like he stood up on a podium and said, ‘this is what I think about all these people.’ It’s not how it is.
“I feel bad for my dad, but I also feel bad for the African-American fans and stuff because they don’t know that he didn’t mean it,” she continued. “He takes responsibility for it, he knows he messed up and these are the repercussions for what’s happening.”
Brooke Hogan starred in a reality show about her family and has also had some success as a singer. In addition, she was a part of TNA for a brief period beginning in 2012.
