Hulk Hogan's divorce from Linda Hogan was nasty to say the least. In fact, according to the Hulkster himself, "it was four years of insanity."
We're sure it didn't help their already strained relationship when she published a tell-all book in which she alleged that the wrestler had a gay affair with another wrestler named Brutus Beefcake, ON TOP of domestic abuse allegations!
Well, the Real American appeared on the Wendy Williams Show on Thursday to set the record straight (no pun intended) and, we gotta admit, he handled his ex-wife's claims with CLASS!
Not only did he wish Linda well in her current relationship with a MUCH younger man, but he calmly denied the rumors of a gay affair, while being incredibly sensitive toward the LGBT community. He made it abundantly clear that being gay is A-ok and if he was, he would proudly declare it to the world, saying:
"It's tough because a lot of my friends in normal life, a lot of my friends in the entertainment business, and a lot of my friends in the wrestling business are gay. It has nothing to do with the quality of person or how nice they are and I've seen how they've been discriminated against … Just to say something spiteful and hurtful, I don’t get it…if it was true and I was gay, I’d embrace it, and I’d tell you guys about it and I’d celebrate it."
And we'd welcome you with open arms, but something tells us you are a happily re-married straight man. Ha!
He also pointed out that Linda's accusations were a little irresponsible because they may have hurt more than just his own reputation.
Mr. Beefcake has a family too, which includes a 15-year-old daughter! High school is hard enough WITHOUT rumors that your dad had an affair with Hulk Hogan, we can't imagine what it was like for her when the student body got wind of that gossip!
Anyway, check out the entire interview with Wendy Williams above and let us know if U are on Team Hulk or Team Linda!
