Professional wrestler and former Hulk Hogan colleague, Booker T. Huffmann, took to Twitter on Friday to express his thoughts regarding Hogan’s recent racist rant that reportedly lead to being fired from WWE.

“20 years ago I made a huge mistake by saying something I shouldn’t have on National TV,” Huffmann wrote in a series of tweets. “It’s 2015 and the n-word should be eradicated from the English language in my opinion.”

He added, “I am shocked by the statements made by Hulk Hogan. It’s unfortunate, but that’s something that he’s going to have to deal with.”

On Friday, WWE confirmed that they cut ties with the 61-year-old wrestler, writing in a statement that the organization is “committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”

Hogan came under fire Friday morning after audio surfaced of him using the N-word while discussing his daughter, Brooke’s love life. “I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n*gger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n*gger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player…I guess we’re all a little racist. F*cking n*gger.” By the way, the audio was from a sex tape he apparently did with his friend’s wife.

Not only has Hogan’s name, photos and merchandise been taken down from the WWE website, but he was also taken down from the Hall of Fame online. It is also now being reported that Hulk will not return to his wrestling reality television series, Tough Enough.

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.
