Brooke Hogan defends her dad's racist rant in the weirdest way (VIDEO)

A celebrity gossip junky, Caroline Goddard has been writing entertainment news for longer than the world has known Kim Kardashian's name. Follow her on Twitter at @GoddardCaroline.

What Brooke Hogan says about white people and bologna will leave you scratching your head

Brooke Hogan is speaking out about her father Hulk Hogan's racism scandal, but her strange defense isn't helping.

The reality star said that while she doesn't condone the racist comments made while Hulk filmed his 2007 sex tape, she still supports him — mostly because people have made racist comments to her, a white woman, and she just laughs them off.

"He's my dad, I love him and the reason I'm standing by his side on this whole thing is because I know him, and it's so easy for people to just — they need something to jump down people's backs about," Brooke told Entertainment Tonight. "He's an easy target.

"I understand when people are writing me mean tweets and saying your dad's this and [that]... [but] I wish I could talk to them and just say, 'Have you ever been really mad at somebody and just said the worst about them?'... It's not that my dad thinks that, and that's not how we were raised.

"My dad's best friends with Mr. T, he's best friends with Dennis Rodman, he's not racist," she also shared. "It's just when you're mad and you're at the lowest point in your life.... you just choose ill-fitting words for that situation just to air your shorts out.

"He's so nice to everybody," she added. "He doesn't talk like that, which is what was so strange about it.

"I feel bad for my dad, but I also feel bad for the African-American fans and stuff because they don’t know that he didn't mean it," she said. "You know, it would be offensive. But this is something that we have to put a stop to every day, because I'll be honest with you, I've had a black guy call me a honkey, and I've also been told that white people smell like bologna. I don't take offense to it, I just laughed at it."
