Gawker to Hulk Hogan

Your Reputation Was

RUINED Before Sex Tape

EXCLUSIVE

1102_hulk_hogan_article
Hulk Hogan has no right to sue Gawker for ruining his reputation by publishing parts of his sex tape ... because he had already admitted that he's a lying, cheating bastard ... this according to Gawker.

Gawker has filed a response to Hulk's $100,000,000 lawsuit against the website ... begging the judge to throw out the case because they had a journalistic right to publish the 1 minute 41 second clip.

In the docs, Gawker claims Hulk had already admitted he was an adulterer in a book he released in 2009 ... so the video couldn't have caused any more harm to his already sullied reputation.

Gawker also claims the website shouldn't be on the hook for invading Hulk's privacy because it didn't record the tape ... it just distributed a small amount of the footage, which it believed to be newsworthy because Hulk is a world famous celebrity. 

Gawker also says it shouldn't have to reveal the identity of the person who leaked the footage to the website -- despite Hulk's demands -- citing laws that protect the news sources.

A judge has yet to rule.

Guess his bandanna wigs and fake mustache glue went to his brain. That's in addition to his steroid use for many years.


Hogan himself said his 'performance' was bad. What do you expect with all the steroids. No erection, testicles the size of peas. Hogan was embarassed. 100 million lawsuite? In his dreams.

Hogan and his good friend sponge bob square pants are in this together. Hogan knew he was being video taped with the guy's wife and now that he is not that much of a celebrity anymore and running out of money the two came up with this plan to put the video out and sue,

The Hulkster is a great wrestler and entertainer but in his personal life he's been a piece of crap. I've got to agree with Gawker.

Terry Gene Bollea (AKA Hulk Hogan) is a total douche bag!

Any man who would tell his convicted son that is was the fault of the person he killed not Nick's is a dick weed and a total loser.

Any man who has to resort to a staged porn to keep himself in the news is an ass hole.

Please stop referring to his children and ex-wife with the sir name if Hogan, it is Bollea.

Hulk has no chance in his lawsuit, and he knows that. This is his chance to keep his name out there in the media.
