It was a figure of speech. You're not perfect, no one of us are.

We all have said and done things. It only makes only look people foolish judging him when we all in our lowest point in life, have done and said things we regret, and probably worse in our lowest time in life.

We all have skeletons in our closet. Nobody goes through life perfect and pure.
Nobody.

So it looks very hypocritical to sit there and still be the judge, when no one or you're not perfect yourself.

I might not be perfect and I definitely have flaws but at least being a racist isn't one of them and I can live with that.

Re: Most people have forgiven Hogan. It’s the internet that makes it seem like he’s so ‘notorious’.

My opinion on the matter is that Hogan did not do anything against black people. Sure, what he said but in all those years, I haven't heard anything about Hulk Hogan assaulting black people or anything. In fact, we know he was friendly with Booker T

However, I know that JBL did bully a huge number of people and I know Stone Cold Steve Austin beat up his wife. They acted on their bad thoughts so until the WWE actually fire them, I will stand with Hogan

I'm sorry but Seth Rollins dated a nazi chick and there are big chances he took place in similar conversations...

Real people learn the power of forgiveness and move on.
You seem to be missing the point. I don't claim to be a saint. I am not self-righteous, and political correctness is a cancer in our society.

I just don't like racists. Hogan's own words have told us that he's a racist. Not by implication, not by inference. But his ACTUAL words. Y'know, when he literally said "I am a racist".

If you actually believe that disliking racists makes me a piece of shit, good for you. You carry on idolozing and mimicking the scum of the planet, while trying to paint normal people as the villains. You're in good company.

First off, putting "racist" in quotes when talking about Hogan is fucking imbecilic. Do we really have to say AGAIN that IN HIS OWN WORDS, from the very recording that you are talking about, Hogan LITERALLY said "I AM A RACIST"? How can people be so fucking blind and so indignant in their fucked up opinion of this guy? He may be your childhood hero, and you may think that calling black people n*ggers is fine, as long as you do it in your house, when you think no one is listening, but you're wrong. Plain and simple.

Second, "he's said he's sorry" is nowhere near enough. If you really think he can't do anything else, again, you're simply wrong.

Third, I hated the cunt before the racist remarks. You say "he made wrestling what it is today". I say, he methodically destroyed at least 2 promotions, holding down young talent and holding the companies to ransom while cashing checks that were bankrupting them. The day he stepped into TNA is literally the day that the company's decline began.

So yeah, some people do still view the guy as a piece of shit, and rightfully so. He can apologize 10 times an hour for the rest of his life for all I care. It changes nothing.

That says it all.

Imbeciles like the British inbred I quoted have always hated Hogan. The faux-racism he allegedly spewed is just a cheap justification for that hatred.

To those of us who don't suffer from HDS (Hulkster Derangement Syndrome), we realize they were just words. Words, said in the privacy of his own home, and said in the heat of the moment.

Words.

I don't care about words. I care about actions. And decades of Hogan's actions show he is in a no way a racist.

Bottom line: get over it, you whiny fucking snowflakes.

Re: Most people have forgiven Hogan. It’s the internet that makes it seem like he’s so ‘notorious’.

It's no surprise to any of us at this point that the wrestling world and its fans are, more oft than not, a very bipolar and fickle community that can seemingly never be happy. What's actually astounding is that there are so many posts in this thread almost justifying somebody being racist purely because they're 'a legend' and have 24-inch pythons, brother.

I've never really been a fan of Hogan, and I'm definitely not a fan of racism. The only thing Hogan has hurt is himself and his 'legacy' because in the grand scheme of things, racists obviously aren't taken as seriously as they should be. Call me old school, but if someone apologises for something it should really mean "yeah I fucked up and I regret what I did and it won't happen again", but I can almost guarantee that ol' Terry has dropped many an N-bomb since this whole thing came out and I'm sure he'll continue to do so.

You can't just accidentally be racist - you're always a racist.

I'd like to have seen Hogan out of the Hall of Fame forever to be honest, but that's me pretending the Hall of Fame actually holds any merit. The president of the United States, another racist, is in there. A convicted rapist in Mike Tyson is in there, there are multiple murderers in there (which is hilarious considering Benoit will never catch a posthumous whiff of the Hall of Fame), and we're expected to think it's an amazing achievement for a legitimately talented wrestler in his day to be put in there not once but twice such as Bret Hart.

Wrestling is weird, brother.

This goes for most things in life, the difference is in wrestling the vocal minority aren't taken seriously. Not to mention, what Hogan said was in private, that doesn't mean what he said may not have been hurtful but he should be allowed to speak however he likes when not in the public eye.
