Hogan’s publicist confirmed Monday that Hogan is using his Twitter account to retweet messages of support and respond to fans.

WWE has not said why it ended its relationship with the “Hulkmania” star. In announcing the break, the company said it is “committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”

Hogan apologized for using “offensive language” Friday but refused to offer further comment on Monday.

He is currently seeking $100 million from the website Gawker ;for posting part of the sex tape of him with Heather Cole, the ex-wife of Hogan’s one-time friend and radio show host Bubba the Love Sponge Clem.
