Hulk Hogan is sorry for his racist rant.

Earlier today, we told you about what Hogan reportedly said to a female acquaintance during a sex tape that was released in 2012. Hogan was captured using the N-word on multiple occasions. And according to a statement that he just gave to People, Hogan has both confirmed the legitimacy of the rant and apologized for it.

"Eight years ago, I used offensive language during a conversation," he said in the statement. "It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. This is not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs, or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs."

Despite the apology, it doesn't sound like people are going to be quick to offer up any forgiveness. Here's how some folks have reacted to Hogan's apology...
