Dwayne Johnson defends Hulk Hogan amid racial slur scandal

July 31, 2015 Hulk Hogan

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson showed his support to his pal and fellow wrestler Hulk Hogan, who is the mid of a racial slur scandal after an audio of hum using the N-word leaked last week.

The actor said he understands that everyone's talked trash at some point in their lives.

I was pretty disappointed with what I heard, like all of us, by the way. Pretty disappointed, Johnson said. Ive known Terry for a lot of years, my dad helped train him in Florida in the 70s when he was breaking into the business My uncles helped train him too as well. I have not known the man to be racist."

Despite being disappointed in the former WWE champ, Johnson said he can sympathize with Hogan.

Its funny, its one of those things where and [Im] not justifying what he said weve all talked trash, especially in private, the actor said. He said what he said, and hes paying the price.

Hogan, who was dropped by WWE following the scandal, apologized for using "offensive language" and his lawyer said he "accepts ownership."
