The Rock Talks About Hulk Hogan’s Racist Comments

Jul 31, 2015 - by Marc Middleton

– The Rock was at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills, California on Thursday to promote HBO’s Ballers when he was asked about Hulk Hogan’s racist comments controversy, which led to WWE parting ways with Hogan. Rock said:

“I was pretty disappointed with what I heard, like all of us, by the way. I’ve known Terry for a lot of years, my dad helped train him in Florida in the ’70s when he was breaking into the business. My uncles helped train him too as well. I have not known the man to be racist.”

Rock added that while there’s no justification for what Hogan said, he believes everyone has “talked trash,” especially in private. He said:

“It’s funny, it’s one of those things where—and not justifying what he said—we’ve all talked trash, especially in private. He said what he said, and he’s paying the price.”
