Yesterday we bought you news of how Hulk Hogan had been fired from the WWE after an alleged racist rant, and then how he looked like an absolute idiot when people trolled him by sending him pictures of Premier League players showing their ‘support’, and we asked the question of how things could possibly get worse for him following these two events.
Well, today we have the answer as someone has leaked even more of that racist rant and it turns out there were some homophobic slurs in there as well. The audio from it hasn’t been found yet but it’s from a conversation that allegedly took place about eight years ago during the filming of Hogan’s reality show, Hogan Knows Best.
He was talking about the season four finale of the show with the girl who featured in his sex tape Heather Clem – also the wife of his alleged best friend at the time Bubba The Love Sponge – when he said the following:

VH1 wanted me to do a big thing and go back to the house I grew up in.
So we knock on the door and a big f*g lives there now!
This half-gay was enamoured with Linda.
Hogan is talking about his ex- wife Linda there, who interestingly accused him of having gay affairs during their marriage following its decline. Hogan tried to sue her for defamation of character after these allegations but the case was dismissed.
In any case, this isn’t exactly the most homophobic rant in history – check out this mental tirade from a Nebraskan Council meeting a couple of years back – but you can’t really go around saying those kinds of things if you’re a celebrity in the public eye and expect to keep your job Hulk. It must be even more of a wounder when a taped conversation you had eight years ago that you probably had no knowledge of ever being recorded comes back and bites you in the ass.
Here’s hoping things don’t get even worse for the Hulkster tomorrow, because even though there’s no excuses for his words you’ve gotta feel bad for him that all of this is happening at once.
