Hulk Hogan Dropped As ‘WWE Tough Enough’ Judge After Racist Comments

The WWE's not the only one pulling Hulk Hogan. The wrestling champ, 61, has been dropped from USA's 'WWE Tough Enough' series, where he is a judge each week on the live segments. As you probably know, Hulk Hogan was fired from the WWE on July 23 on the heels of report that he used the n-word multiple times, and it was all caught on tape. Alleged transcripts of a 2012 sex tape were reportedly sealed, which include a lot of explicit language, and now he's not only lost his WWE affiliation, but also his judges seat on USA's competition show, WWE Tough Enough, insiders have confirmed to HollywoodLife.com.

Tough Enough will still air on Tuesday with a replacement judge, HollywoodLife can confirm.

This comes on the heel’s of WWE’s statement. “WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan). WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”

So, what did he allegedly say — well, it was apparently a conversation with Heather Clem, according to RadarOnline, about his daughter, Brooke Hogan‘s music career which was going to be funded by a “black billionaire guy.”

“I don’t know if Brooke was f***ing the black guy’s son. I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f***ing n*****s. But then when it comes to nice people and s***, and whatever,” he apparently said. “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*** some n*****, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n***** worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. F*****g n*****.”

Who do you think should replace him, HollywoodLifers?
