Former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan says that having sex with his best friend’s wife was the worst decision he’s ever made.
During an appearance on The View, Hogan discussed the sex recording of him with the wife of his best friend, talk show host Bubba the Love Sponge, Heather Clem (now Cole). Hogan had Bubba’s blessing to have sex with Clem, however, he still regrets it.
“I’ve got a ton of regrets about it” says Hogan. “It’s the worst decision I’ve ever made in my life.”
One of the three recordings included Hogan making racist statements to Clem about his daughter’s black boyfriend. Hogan used the n-word repeatedly and said that if his daughter Brooke was going to date black men, he would prefer she find a rich basketball player.
He added that the racist comments were: “Probably the stupidest thing I’ve ever said. The people that know me know I’m not a racist.”
“When I got remarried, my minister – Afro-American. I go to a predominantly Afro-American church.”
Hogan says that even the WWE knows that the comments don’t reflect his true character. Although, the wrestling promotion did fire him after the tape surfaced online.
“Everybody that knows me knows I’m not a racist. Even the WWE knows I’m not a racist.”
“They had to do what was best for business for their company, but for me, everybody that knows me knows that’s not who I am.”
