WWE superstar Chris Jericho sat down with HuffPost Live on Monday, Aug. 24 and shared his thoughts on the audio recording of Hulk Hogan using racist language.
Jericho: “[I'm] surprised, absolutely, because Hulk's not like that. But we all say things in stupid times, in stupid ways. I'm sure you have, I'm sure I have. Whether it be those type of comments or any type of comment that's not correct, that's not right. But I think it's one of those deals where, as a friend, you've got to stick by your friends in good times and bad times. And I don't condone it, and I'm surprised, but a friend is a friend.”
Jericho: “I do feel bad for him. I feel bad for everyone involved. I feel bad for people of color or any type of race that are fans of his. You do feel a little bit let down. But I know this: nobody feels more let down than he does. I think he feels really embarrassed and really bad about it.”
