Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently discussed the racial slur comments by Hulk Hogan that were leaked online last week stemming from a sex tape filmed back in 2006. Johnson said the remarks by Hogan didn’t match his personal history with him.

“I’ve known Terry for a lot of years, and my dad helped train him in Florida in the ’70s when he was breaking into the business. I come from a very long line of lineage of professional wrestlers. I had not known the man to be racist. We’ve all talked trash, you know, especially in private. He said what he said, and he’s paying the price.”
