Hulk Hogan’s manager doesn’t believe that the 61-year-old wrestler is a “real white racists.”
In a statement to HipHollywood, Richard Paraiso, expressed his reaction to the recent audio recording of Hogan using the N-word to discuss his daughter, Brooke’s dating life.
“I’m a black European guy and I manage Hulk career in partnership with Sovereign Talent Group. That’s the reason why I like to think that the words spoken by Hulk went perhaps beyond his thoughts,” he wrote. “If you carefully listen to the tape, you can notice that he was nervous and upset by his daughter’s [sic] situation with a black man and used the N word. But in the same time, he said that he would rather see his daughter getting married with a black rich black basketball player and unfortunately used the N word again.”
The statement continued, “But everybody knows that real white racists would never accept to see their daughter getting married with a black guy no matter he is rich or poor. We just think that someone is trying to make money with an old tape dated 2012 because of recent real racist events in America.”
“As a black French man, I have always been shocked by the word ‘Negre’ in the French dictionary. This is the word they use for a ‘Ghost writer’ And ‘Negre’ is the exact translation of ‘Nigger’ … Hulk was more nervous and upset than racist. After all these years at the WWE, if he was a real racist he wouldn’t have been successful that long and they would have fired him years ago.”
Hogan’s contract with WWE was terminated early Friday morning, his name was taken down from the online Hall of Fame and he will no longer appear on the wrestling reality show, Tough Enough.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
