– Hulk Hogan’s lawyer David Houston spoke with FOX 411 on Friday about the controversy surrounding Hogan after racist comments he made were made public by The National Enquirer, leading WWE to terminate his contract and scrub him from the company.
Hogan’s lawyer confirmed that the comments on the tape were made in 2006. The transcript was in a sealed deposition that is part of Hogan’s $100 million lawsuit against Gawker for posting online video of Hogan having sex with Bubba the Love Sponge’s wife Heather Clem. The sex video is reportedly on the same recording as the racist comments.
Houston is suspicious of Gawker leaking the transcripts and is threatening legal action. He said:
“I have my suspicions, as you can imagine. If I can find out it is Gawker who leaked the transcripts, we will bury them.”
Gawker President and General Counsel Heather Dietrick denied they had anything to do with the transcripts being leaked. She issued this statement to FOX 411:
“Hulk Hogan has only one person to blame for what he said and no one from Gawker had any role in leaking that information.”
Hogan’s lawyer said Hogan asked him to tell his fans that he is “devastated” by his past actions and that he “sincerely apologizes to his family, friends and fans.” Houston added, “He is not a racist. His history defines him as something different.”
