Hulk Hogan: I'm not a racist

Wrestler has been accused of using the N-word


Hulk Hogan made his first television appearance since he was fired from the WWE last month for racist remarks he made on tape.

The wrestler gave a teary interview on "Good Morning America" Monday morning and apologized to fans for his comments.

"I'm not a racist," he said. "I never should have said what I said. I was wrong. I'm embarrassed by it."

Hogan came under fire in July for using the N-word to describe a man involved with his daughter, Brooke, in a leaked transcript of a sex tape that is the center of a multimillion dollar lawsuit with the gossip site Gawker.

He also told "GMA" that he was suicidal years ago. "I was at the lowest point of my life to where I wanted to kill myself."

He added, "Please forgive me. I'm a nice guy."
