    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has weighed in on the recent controversy surrounding Hulk Hogan.

    Hogan was fired by the WWE last week after racist comments he made on a sex tape eight years ago became public.

    Johnson, who was promoting his HBO series, "Ballers," at a press event on Thursday, had this to say about Hogan:

    "I've known [Hulk Hogan] for a lot of years. My dad helped train him in Florida in the '70s when he was breaking into the business. My uncles helped train him as well. So I'd not known him to be racist.

    Johnson then smiled. "It's funny, it's one of those things where€ -- I'm not justifying what he saidâ -- but we've all talked trash. Especially in private. He said what he said and now he's paying the price."

    Hogan and Johnson appeared in the ring together last year at WrestleMania XXX, where they kicked off the show along with Stone Cold Steve Austin.

    Dwayne gets it. Most, if not all people, are at least a touch racist.

    I figure Steve Austin probably grew up with the N word as part of his daily vocabulary, but no one's found any old tapes of him saying it yet

    If you're famous, you should behave. Saying dumb shit just leads to trouble. Now he's in Paula Dean territory.

    He was secretly recorded in private 8 years ago and now he's getting the "Benoit" treatment from the WWE. Now Hulk is being treated the same as a guy who snapped and murdered his wife and 7 year old son. Stop and think about that for a second...

    That's why if I was famous, I'd keep my big mouth shut. Easier to say than to do I guess.
