Here is an updated statement from Hulk Hogan:

Hogan has apologized in a statement to People magazine:

“Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it,” Hogan said in a statement exclusively to PEOPLE. The transcript featuring that conversation was published online by the National Enquirer.

“This is not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise,” Hogan told PEOPLE. “I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.”

Hogan’s lawyer, David Houston, also told People that Hogan resigned from WWE.

“He decided to resign from WWE because he didn’t want to put them or his family through this,” Houston said.
