Brooke Hogan has posted a poem in defense of and in support of her father, Hulk Hogan, after his racist rant went public.

Brooke Hogan was actually referred to in her father's sex tape rant, which was exposed when muckraking specialists National Enquirer and Radar Online transcribed excerpts from a sex tape Hulk is currently in litigation over.

"I'd rather if she was going to f-- some n--er," Hogan is heard saying on the tape, referring to Brooke, "I'd rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n--er worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player!

When the news hit, the WWE cut ties with Hulk Hogan, scrubbing him from their website and issuing a statement.

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

Hulk Hogan issued his own apology even before Brooke responded.

"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. 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."

Brooke Hogan posted a poem about her dad to Facebook. She refers to his work over the years, bringing smiles to people "light, medium, and dark." Presumably she means wrestling, not Hulk Hogan's later years as a barista.

Brooke Hogan also reminds all us sinners that, "The lord says to forgive them, don't be the one to stone..."

"We all can make mistakes and carry ugly scars," Brooke says, "... things we don't mean can sometimes slip."

Here is Brooke Hogan's poem:

~If You Knew My Father~
By Brooke Bollea

If you knew the dad I knew,
you'd know his tender heart.

He'd never want to hurt his fans,
or family from the start.

If you knew my father,
you would know how hard he fought...

and the way it brought a smile to people light, medium and dark.

We always fight a battle
that people never see,

and sometimes when you're hurting, you don't think logically.

Human isn't perfect,
and perfect is not he,

but I can tell you one thing, it's just not what it seems.

Cause If you knew the dad I knew,
you'd know he raised me well.

He taught me folks are so much more
than shades could ever tell.

And If you knew my father,
you would know he's down to earth.

He may have slammed the giant,
but remembers life's true worth.

If you knew my father,
if you just walked in his shoes...

then you would know that microscope that comes with yellow boots.

If you knew my father,
you would see your own in mine.

And if he was your father, you could never find divide.

Cause me- I bet your father
or someone that you love

Maybe regrets something
they wish they'd never done.

So if you know my father,
remember he's a man,

and you would crave relief if people judged everything you did.

The lord says to forgive them,
don't be the one to stone...

so please remember his strong arms when you were all alone.

The lives he's changed, the friends he's made,
the people he's inspired...

It makes me sad to see my dad
defeated and so tired.

If you knew my father,
you would know just how he's hurting...

For he loves every one of you, regardless of your story.

And if you met my father,
I know he'd give you love!

He'd lift you up, apologize and give you all a hug.

For those who think you know my father,
remember who you are.

We all can make mistakes and carry ugly scars.

Because I know my father,
I can promise this-

Just like you and I, things we don't mean can sometimes slip.

We all continue learning.
This life can be so rough...

So if you know my father, please try not to be tough.

My father has a daughter,
and I have feelings too.

And if I knew your father, I would do the same for you.
