Hulk Hogan is at it again.
In case you forgot, the WWE athlete (born Terry Bollea) was awarded with $140 million in damages after the 62-year-old sued Gawker Media for violating his privacy when they posted a sex tape of himself sleeping with his former best friend’s wife.
Now, weeks later, the 62-year-old is filing yet another lawsuit against the gossip site and others for allegedly leaking sealed court documents to the National Enquirer where he is heard making racists remarks.
Yeah, those comments about his daughter’s boyfriend where he says:
“I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f*ck some n-word, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n-word worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. F*cking n-word.”
Hogan’s camp is claiming that Gawker intentionally leaked the tape that he 1) didn’t know was being recorded and 2) was under seal during the first lawsuit.
Meanwhile, Gawker is appealing the $140 million jury verdict over the first sex tape and is denying that it had anything to do with the leaked transcript to the Enquirer.
A statement from the site reads:
“This is getting ridiculous. Hulk Hogan is a litigious celebrity abusing the court system to control his public image and media coverage. It was absurd enough that Hulk Hogan claimed $100m for emotional distress and economic damage for a story about a sex life that he’d already made public. Now Hulk Hogan is blaming Gawker for racist remarks he made on another sex tape, which Gawker never had. As we’ve said before and are happy to say again: Gawker did not leak the information. It’s time for Hulk Hogan to take responsibility for his own words, because the only person who got Hulk Hogan fired from the WWE is Hulk Hogan.”
Which side R U on, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!!
