Heartbroken Hot 97 host and die-heard wrestling fan, Peter Rosenberg rips his poster of shamed WWE pro-wrestler, Hulk Hogan after an audio tape of him using racial slurs about his daughter, Brooke's boyfriend went viral.

The viral video posted on EbroInTheAm's official Instagram page shows a disappointed Hulk Hogan taking down the throwback poster of The Hulk Hogan, "Nah, f*ck that, we're ripping this to shreds," Ebro said before singing and recording Peter tearing the poster down, "I am a real American, racist like the rest of my of my brothers and..."

The wrestler released a statement after the transcript of the conversation stemming from his leaked sextape was published by the National Enquirer.

"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," He told PEOPLE, "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."

Friday morning, the WWE washed their hands of Hulk Hogan and took down videos, photos and removed him from the online Hall of Fame.

Peter tweeted, "It sounds like the full transcript of that tape is SO bad that this had to be done .... Very weird and sad news .... SO Disappointing."

Hulk's attorney, David Houston confirmed the wrestler's resignation from WWE, "He decided to resign from WWE because he didn't want to put them or his family through this"

He explained, "WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (a.k.a. Hulk Hogan). WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide."
