Hulk Threats: "Your Kid's Gonna Bleed"

6/16/2008 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The voicemail threats made against Hulk Hogan and his family -- calling them "whores" and threatening to "piss on you and your family's grave" -- have been released ... and, man, are they disturbing.

Bubba the Love Sponge, radio host and Hogan family friend, played the messages allegedly made by John Graziano's brother, Frank, on his show this morning. Clearwater PD tells TMZ there is an "open investigation" into the calls.

According to the Tampa Tribune, John Graziano's dad, Edward, confirmed today that the voice on the tape is that of Frank Caruso, John's 32-year-old half-brother. He said Caruso is a child from his estranged wife's first marriage.

It would only be right with the exclusive with BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE that Terry decided to release the tapes...Bubba was called to the accident that day and Terry and Bubba have been Best Friends for quite awhile...I have to agree that what happend to John is a horrific accident, but as stated they are kids and I am sure that John had no problem with the racing that Nick was doing! Yes Nick may have been in the public view since he was born as are alot of children and have gotten the best of the best, but he is still a child! Terry and his family have been supportive to Johns family through this whole ordeal and have admitted Nicks fault, they didn't deny a thing! As far as the threats they are uncalled for! It isn't helping John and it isn't going to change how John is! And to imagine if this would of just happend to some "Joe" would it have gone this far? May all that are involved stay strong and may faith lead you in the right path!

BUBBA ARMY FOREVER

The mafority of the people I know despise ALL the Hogan family for they are wretched and care nothing about anyone but themselves. IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO HULK AND HIS CREEPY WIFE AND SON, WHO CARES? Not me .. not my friends ... they earned this hate and should fear every day will be the one that might take them to the same place John is living .. without a working brain and a life .. they did it all to that family .. terrible !! THE HOGANS ARE HORRIBLE AND WE HATE THEM NOW.

Think about it for a second.

White trash always hang out with other white trash. No?

But the way the Hogan conducted themselves is totally wrong and callous.

If Nick was the one in hospital, you have to know that each and everyone of the Hogans would camp out at all the Papparazzi hot spots and use their "fame" in order to dump on the Grazianos. Tmz and the others would be covering them non-stop.

If this story is true, the Grazianos are going to blow any chance for dollars they might have gotten in a lawsuit.

I kinda agree with an earlier post that the Hogan are behing this statement. It's all too Hollywood Hogan.

having been in the U.S. Army, i know that the military could very well press charges against Hogan Jr. because he has indirectly and physically harmed an active member of the military, and he'll receive a much harder sentence and many blanket parties.if they don't pursue this issue i would be very surprised.

This whole situation is awful. I think the Hogans need to be quiet and go away to grow up.
BUT! I do want to know if John was wearing his seat belt. Not that his not wearing one makes the car accident his fault - Nick was driving. It's the driver's responsibility when he/she causes an accident.
Was John wearing his seat belt?? The Hogan's keep saying he wasn't.

Perhaps this is not the best way for the Graziano family to handle this situation, but I can understand their frustration. On top of everything that happened with John and the Hogan family's complete lack of empathy, now the Hogan family will use this tape to try to flip the public's sympathy from the Graziano family and make themselves out to be the victims. I was a big Hulk Hogan fan and I liked the family all up to when I heard the recordings. I am so dissapointed on how they've handled this without an ounce of empathy. Although what John's brother says is harsh I don't don't feel sorry for the Hogan's because it appears from the way they went about to expose this recording it's only a strategy for public sympathy. I hope the public isn't fooled into believing that the Hogan's are actually the victims. This whole situation is just sickening.

I feel that the Hogan's have done a lot of damage to their image, following the trial and sentencing of Nick, but I can't condone any member of any family leaving threats as a voicemail, and no, these are not private conversations like the Hogan's had with their son. (@ Posted at 11:49AM on Jun 16th 2008 by Lenore). The Hogan's made some bad judgement calls recently, but that does not justify the reactions left on the voicemail.
It's a shame that the victim is getting more and more overlooked in this drama. It seems like everybody wants to star is this bad soap opera, that they seem to forget that there's a real victim in all this. Actually, they are all victims. I hope both the Hogan- and the Graciano family have the support they need to deal with all of this negativity. They will need it.

I agree that the reality show crap needs to stop. It has become so over done, and now the powers that be are making $$ off of a tragic incident connected to one of them. The message seems to be that if you are rich and famous, you should spoil your children, never teach them to be resposible adults and let them indulge in anything they whine for. Why did a 17 year old kid get so much freedom? Oh, yes....I forgot....he is an "expert" at drifting high powered automobiles too. This young man will never live a happy and productive life, while little Nicky will get out in a few short months to go back to his mommy and all his toys. I am sure mom and dad will dump a bunch of $$ on him as well to help comfort him a little more. I first thought the show was kind of cool....but after watching it a few times, I figured out how messed up they all are. Hulk gets involved with a much younger woman who looks surprisingly like his own bleached blonde daugther (creepy), his soon to be ex wife finds a blonde boy toy to play with who is 20 some years younger then she is (lets see if it lasts....) and the over protected daugther keeps attempting to prove she is talented enough to sing.....of course producers of music vids are interested...they see money....if she wasnt related to anyone with plenty of it, would she stand a chance?
No one will ever take any of this family seriously again, no matter how much they try to change it all.

It figures trash like Bubba TLS is friends with the Hogans. Why don't they all go away, the Tampa area would be a lot better off without the lot of them. Bubba is such trash.

VAL, who cares about you? No one, you and your friends are white trash at its finest.

Funny, people said it was fine for the Hogan conversations to be released, now are crying that Bubba let people hear the voice messages from some wimp punk named Franklin.

Jenny, military cannot do crap, was an accident. Worry about finding Bin Laden, instead of some kid.

Hulkamania rules, Bubba army is the real army of the land!!! Hogan and Bubba for 2012!!!!!! Let's get this country back on track, to all Hogan haters who do not know the whole story, you need to be locked up and the key thrown away!!!!!!

It was not an accident that he drank, or drove, or was speeding. He caused it! He needs to be responsible for it.
I think the best way to fight this family is do what we can to stop Nick's show, and I think the best way to do that is go against any potential sponsors.
