Hulk Hogan apologized for repeatedly using the "n" word in a 2007 sex tape that the National Enquirer and RadarOnLine.com reported on last Friday.
Another recording has surfaced that captured the famous wrestler making racially fueled comments over jailhouse phone calls to his son, Nick Bollea, back in May of 2008. At the time, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office released nearly two weeks worth of jail phone calls. Bay News 9 went back and listened to more of those calls and found the racial comments the public has never heard before.
Hogan calls his son the "n" word and Nick does not repeat that exact word.
"You and me been sitting on some serious phone, phone dialogue here n---a," Hogan said.
"Yeah, nibb-ah," Nick said.
"N---a, n---a, that means, that means you (are) my best friend," said Hogan.
Nick was serving an eight month sentence for a car crash that left his friend, John Graziano, permanently disabled. In another phone call, Hogan talks about God and re-incarnation.
"You know that God gave you this vibe and this, this, energy that you and I are going to live forever, bro," he said. "I just hope we don't come back as a couple, I don't want to say it, blizz-ack gizz-uys, you know what I'm saying?"
"Brutal," Nick responded after they both laughed.
Hogan also talked to Nick about possibly being transferred from the adult jail to juvenile hall.
“It’s down in St. Pete and it's mixed-race and we get along with everybody, so that's fine," Nick said.
Hulk said, "Your mom went there and said it was mainly blizz, you know what I'm sizz-aying?"
"Mm-hm," Nick said.
Hulk responded, "And that some of the ladies there that, you know, run the school are nice blizz lizz-adies, you know?"
"Mm-hm.... I would go down there, I would make friends with all those kids down there," said Nick. "I guarantee it. Because you know how all the blizz pizz love us."
Last Friday, the National Enquirer and RadarOnLine.com quoted Hogan from the sex tape saying: "I am a racist, to a point, f--- n------."
The World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. deleted nearly all references of Hogan from its website. Hogan resigned from the WWE and issued a statement that said, "Eight years ago I used offensive language... there is no excuse... and I apologize."
The words Hogan used on the jailhouse phone calls happened about one year after the sex tape quotes. We went to Hogan's Clearwater Beach mansion to ask him about it but nobody came to the door.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, has a filed a $100 million lawsuit against Gawker Media Co. for publishing excerpts from that sex tape. Hogan claims his privacy was violated. A hearing in that case is scheduled for October in a St. Petersburg courthouse.
