Hulk Hogan finally sat down for his big apology interview Monday morning on Good Morning America.
“Oh, my gosh. Please forgive me. Please forgive me,” Hogan said. “I think if you look at the whole picture of who Hulk Hogan is, you can see over all the years that there’s not a racist bone in my body.”
Hogan was caught on a video, recorded about 8 years ago, spewing the n-word when disapproving of his daughter’s boyfriend at the time.

“I’m not a racist but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I’m embarrassed by it,” he said, adding that he considered suicide when the his comments surfaced. “People need to realize that you inherit things from your environment. And where I grew up was south Tampa, Port Tampa, and it was a really rough neighborhood, very low income. And all my friends, we greeted each other saying that word.”
“I was to the point where I wanted to kill myself, you know?… I was completely broken and destroyed and said, ‘What’s the easiest way out of this?’ I mean, I was lost.”
