Hulk Hogan's public image may be taking a beating after audio footage of him using racial slurs surfaced, but to his daughter, he is still the best dad there is.
Brooke Hogan, 27, was actually the topic of conversation in the now infamous recording that resulted in veteran wrestler Hulk's termination from the WWE. But in an emotional poem posted to her Facebook, she insists that though her father "isn't perfect" he does have a "tender heart" and that "things we don't mean can sometimes slip" when hurt.

In the shocking audio footage, Hulk admits "I am a racist" and uses the n-word several times. He has since apologized for his behavior.

In Brooke's Facebook post, she insists that her father's words were a simple mistake and he is not a racist, writing: "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."
