In the recent sex tape leaked by Gawker, Hogan allegedly made some racist comments regarding his daughter’s boyfriend, including multiple uses of the n-word and admitting he is “racist, to a point”.

In a statement sent to Polygon, 2K Sports said Hogan won’t appear, as they stand by the decisions made by the WWE.

Hulk Hogan has been completely eradicated from any and all records by the WWE, including their Hall of Fame. The spokesperson for 2K Sports had this to say:

“We are highly respectful of the way that our partners choose to run their business and manage our partnerships accordingly.”

In a statement by the WWE to the National Enquirer, they said this:

“WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”

When asked if Hogan would be removed from previous 2K WWE games, they refused to comment. Hulk has issued an apology for his remarks, although there has been no response from WWE.
