Former WWE superstar Dwayne Johnson says he’s disappointed in his former peer Hulk Hogan who was exposed as a racist and homophobe by RadarOnline and the National Enquirer.
Earlier this month, the outlets leaked transcripts from a eight year old recording of Hogan that features him using the n-word several times. “I am a racist, to a point, f*cking n****rs,” he remarked in the rant that he’s since apologized for.
Johnson, also known as The Rock, was asked about the scandal at the a TV critics’ meeting Thursday. “I’ve known Terry for a lot of years, and my dad helped train him in Florida in the ’70s when he was breaking into the business. I come from a very long line of lineage of professional wrestlers. I had not known the man to be racist,” said Johnson.
“We’ve all talked trash, you know, especially in private. He said what he said, and he’s paying the price,” the Ballers star added.
Hogan was fired from the WWE following the scandal, and erased from their website.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
