Hulk Hogan talks for the first time about the n-word scandal

In his first interview since being fired from the WWE in late July, Hulk Hogan apologized on “Good Morning America” for his use of the n-word and insisted that he’s not a racist. “I’m not a racist, but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I’m embarrassed by it,” the former pro wrestler, who’s real name is Terry Bollea, told ABC News’ Amy Robach in an interview that aired Monday on “Good Morning America.” Hulk said he grew up in an environment where the N-word “was just thrown around like it was nothing.” “People need to realize that you inherit things from your environment,” he said. “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.”
