More Hulk Hogan Racist Comments Leak, Jamie Foxx Gets Name Dropped
Hulk Hogan remains on the wrong side of the press, at the moment. Just days after a transcript was leaked featuring racist comments the Hulkster (born Terry Bollea) made in a sex tape, it is now being reported that new racist comments have been revealed.
The first comments had been under seal in a Florida court, since they were a part of the sex tape lawsuit Hulk Hogan has filed against Gawker Media. However, the National Enquirer still managed to obtain the comments, and the potential media firestorm resulted in WWE preemptively cutting all ties with Hogan, not only releasing him from his “Legends” contract but also firing him from his role as a judge on currently-airing USA Network reality series Tough Enough. Moreover, he’s been erased completely from the WWE website, including the Hall of Fame listing, and the roster for the upcoming WWE 2K16 videogame.
So what did Hulk Hogan say this time? Well, it appears he’s name-dropped Jamie Foxx in his latest rant, in which he, once again, complains about the black producer who was looking to help his daughter, Brooke, jumpstart her music career:
“F***ing n***er… he had Jamie Foxx coming in on the 22nd track,” Hogan ranted. “I didn’t even tell Brooke about it. F*** her. Brooke and [producer’s name withheld] met in Miami.”
He continues, “Brooke f***s up a $10 million deal I had with the Saudis. Brooke says, ‘F*ck you, Dad.’ She’s never said that. She flipped a bird at me.”
“I have this huge f***ing house in Miami,” he raved. “My family never comes home. They went to L.A. F*** ’em.”
In short, these comments add to the pileup from the first leak, as Hogan was on record as saying, “I am a racist, to a point, f***ing n***ers.”
Hogan already apologized for the first comments, and Brooke Hogan even penned a touching poem in defense of her father. But will she stand by him through THIS? In which he outright says, in reference to Brooke, “F*** her”?
In his own defense, Hogan once again made a brief comment on Twitter:
For those that left me and didn't stand by my side,u will see and I will prove,who i really am and u will also understand my love for u 0LHH

This is a sad situation all-around, and a PR nightmare for Hogan from which I’m not sure he’ll recover. What’s worse is that this might not even be the last of the comments. I suppose we’ll find out if anything else leaks, but right now, it’s looking like Hogan is already done in the entertainment industry.
But what do you think of the Hulk Hogan situation? Does he deserve all the negative publicity, or is it unfair to judge someone for something they said almost a decade ago? Sound off in the comments!
