There once was a time when pissing off Hulk Hogan would get you body slammed, but now it just gets you sued. The former pro wrestler is suing Gawker the gossip site who posted his sex tape. He is seeking $100 million in damages; apparently people seeing one minute of his pale ass caused him $100 million in damages.
“Mr. Hogan had a reasonable expectation of his privacy, just as all Americans have a reasonable expectation of their privacy in their bedrooms.” attorney Charles Harder said to the media.
Gawker has not commented on the lawsuit, but one has to imagine they’re a little busy right about now. We’re sure this debacle is doing wonders for their website traffic.
Hogan is also suing the woman he was banging in the video and her ex-husband Bubba the Love Sponge. The amount he is suing them for is still unclear, but it’s pretty clear that he feels hurt and betrayed. Hogan claimed in the lawsuit that the video caused a “severe” and “irreparable” injury that cannot be adequately compensated by monetary damages.
Meanwhile, the lawyer for Bubba is hoping that Bubba and Hulk can get their friendship back,
“My hope is that these two preserve their friendship. I can’t comment on the suit. This has caused harm to Bubba and he didn’t release it, he didn’t condone the release of it. He wants to find out who did that and he wants that person to be held accountable.”
Pfft, I’d let someone secretly tape me having sex for $100 million.
