For those wondering “why now?” in regards to racially charged comments Hulk Hogan made on the unauthorized sex tape with Heather Clem (the ex-wife of Bubba the Love Sponge) coming out today, Hogan is currently in the middle of a $100 million lawsuit against Gawker Media for leaking the tape.
Transcripts of the tape have been submitted to a Florida court overseeing the lawsuit but are sealed to prevent them from public consumption. However, the National Enquirer and Radar Online obtained and published excerpts from the transcripts that were verified by 5 independent sources. TMZ reported on Friday they have seen the tape and confirmed Hogan repeatedly used the n-word while talking about an African-America guy his daughter Brooke was dating.
Hogan has also confirmed the legitimacy of the tirade and apologized.
