Hulk Hogan won’t be in this year’s WWE 2K16 following revelations that the former pro wrestler made racist remarks during a sex tape.

“We are highly respectful of the way that our partners choose to run their business and manage our partnerships accordingly,” 2K said in a statement. “We can confirm that Hulk Hogan will not appear in WWE 2K16.”

The sex tape is at the center of a lawsuit between Hogan and the online publishing company Gawker. The racist remarks, which were leaked recently online, have hit Hogan hard.

Not only is the wrestler being dropped from 2K’s video game franchise, the WWE has removed Hogan’s photos, articles, and merchandise from its website.

“Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it,” Hogan told People magazine in a statement.

“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.”

Media Man wishes Hulk Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) the best, while he recovers from his past mistakes.
