Brooke Hogan is standing by her father Hulk Hogan when it comes to the race scandal he is involved in, which could have been the catalyst that got him fired from the WWE. Radar Online and the National Enquirer had acquired some soundbites of Hulk saying the N-word back in the day and the story went viral. Fans could not believe that their beloved Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea) was capable of such wrongdoings. The incident happened almost a decade ago as Hulk did come out and acknowledge what he had said. That does take a real man to admit when they are wrong.

E! broke the news that the WWE had ended their contract with the wrestler as they are the network that airs the hit WWE show “Total Divas,” which has several African-American female and male wrestlers featured weekly. Yet it is the Hulk who is saying via his lawyer that he left the brand: “He decided to resign from WWE because he didn’t want to put them or his family through this.” He also lost his gig on the television show “Tough Enough.” But daughter Brooke, 27, is standing by her father and had this to say on Facebook:

~If You Knew My Father~
By Brooke BolleaIf you knew the dad I knew,
you’d know his tender heart.

He’d never want to hurt his fans,
or family from the start.

If you knew my father,
you would know how hard he fought…

and the way it brought a smile to people light, medium and dark.

We always fight a battle
that people never see,

and sometimes when you’re hurting, you don’t think logically.

Human isn’t perfect,
and perfect is not he,

but I can tell you one thing, it’s just not what it seems.

Cause If you knew the dad I knew,
you’d know he raised me well.

He taught me folks are so much more
than shades could ever tell.

And If you knew my father,
you would know he’s down to earth.

He may have slammed the giant,
but remembers life’s true worth.

If you knew my father,
if you just walked in his shoes…

then you would know that microscope that comes with yellow boots.

If you knew my father,
you would see your own in mine.

And if he was your father, you could never find divide.

Cause me- I bet your father
or someone that you love

Maybe regrets something
they wish they’d never done.

So if you know my father,
remember he’s a man,

and you would crave relief if people judged everything you did.

The lord says to forgive them,
don’t be the one to stone…

so please remember his strong arms when you were all alone.

The lives he’s changed, the friends he’s made,
the people he’s inspired…

It makes me sad to see my dad
defeated and so tired.

If you knew my father,
you would know just how he’s hurting…

For he loves every one of you, regardless of your story.

And if you met my father,
I know he’d give you love!

He’d lift you up, apologize and give you all a hug.

For those who think you know my father,
remember who you are.

We all can make mistakes and carry ugly scars.

Because I know my father,
I can promise this-

Just like you and I, things we don’t mean can sometimes slip.

We all continue learning.
This life can be so rough…

So if you know my father, please try not to be tough.

My father has a daughter,
and I have feelings too.

And if I knew your father, I would do the same for you.

As she kindly defended her father, he, too released a statement regarding negative words he has used: “Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. This not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.”

What do you think about all of this? Are you still a Hulk fan? Will you forgive him? I think that this is a sweet gesture on his daughter’s behalf however, we know how much this family loves the spotlight (“Hogan Knows Best,” “Brooke Knows Best” and “Couples Therapy” what?). I guess time will tell.
