WWE’s Chris Jericho discusses friend Hulk Hogan on HuffPost Live

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.”
