Hulk Hogan won his lawsuit against Gawker back in March, taking home $115 million following the release of a sex tape. A secondary sex tape emerged before the trial, per The National Enquirer, that alleged Hogan used racist slurs, including the n-word.

Thanks to Death and Taxes Mag, alleged audio of Hogan has emerged. While it’s a bit difficult to hear, it’s just as bad as we imagined.

Death and Taxes Mag reportedly got this audio through a bit of a loophole, when the Florida 2nd District Court of Appeals unsealed confidential documents as Gawker attempted to get Hogan’s racist comments into evidence:

“Death and Taxes obtained the unsealed audio recording of the sting operation from the FBI investigation (excerpt embedded below), which included Hogan and his personal attorney David Houston watching parts of the sex tapes together with ?sex tape broker? Keith Davidson.”

Here’s a transcript of the audio, per Complex:

Clem: [laughs]

Hogan: If we?re gonna f**k with n*****s, let?s get a rich one!

Clem: [laughs]

Hogan was fired from WWE following a release of the transcript.
