“WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.” Hogan followed with a boiler-plate apology later Friday morning.
“Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation.
Bollea occasionally attended amateur drifting competitions. According to Chris Tyler, a drift event organizer, Bollea attended an event the Friday prior to the crash of Nick's Toyota Supra.
Bollea did not compete; he gave drifting demonstrations between the runs of competitors.

I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.” Hogan first alluded to the discord with a cryptic tweet posted early Friday: The backdrop for this controversy is the ongoing lawsuit in which Hogan — call him Terry Bollea in court, please — is suing Gawker Media for 0 million for invasion of privacy, after the website published a clip from the 2006 sex tape allegedly featuring Hogan and the then-wife of his then-best friend.
