Hulk Hogan Takes The Stand In $100,000,000 Leaked Sextape Lawsuit Against Gawker Website

Hulk Hogan

WWE and WWF wrestler, Hulk Hogan, real name Terry Bollea, took the stand today in his $100,000,000 lawsuit against the website Gawker, owned by Nick Denton. Hogan was conducting an extramarital affair with the wife of his then best friend, radio host, Bubba The Love Sponge Clem, with his knowledge and permission, in what is an unwise and unethical open marriage. Hogan states he was unaware Bubba The Love Sponge Clem was using a hidden camera to make a sex tape of Hogan and his wife. Bubba The Love Sponge Clem then leaked the video to Gawker.

Hogan stated in court, "I was embarrassed by what it did to me as a person, but it was even embarrassing as a character. Hulk Hogan was embarrassed." Denton argued his parents saw during the Holocaust "First hand what happens when free speech is suppressed." Firstly, this is exactly why Denton should have more respect for the human rights of others and not criminally aide in the violation of their privacy. The Jews were treated very badly, denied all privacy and human rights in general. Secondly, don't invoke the horrible Holocaust, something so serious that is a terrible human atrocity where people were murdered, as a legal defense for violating the rights of others. It is insulting. Thirdly, leaked a secretly made sex tape has nothing to do with free speech. You criminally violated Hogan's human rights.

So, Denton, following your illogical, defective defense, another blogger would have the right to secretly install a hidden camera in your bedroom and bathroom, then unbeknownst to you record you in states of undress and engaging in sexual activity, then publish it to their blog? You would sue them into poverty if you were disgustingly violated in that manner, so stop pretending.

As a writer and blogger, who has respect for the law and people's rights, I am of the belief, Gawker had absolutely no right to post the secretly made sex tape of Hogan. What Gawker did was unkind, cruel and criminal. There is a depravity that exists today among some in society, emanating from Hollywood, where select people think they have the right to secretly spy on others in their homes and hotel rooms. It is perverted, sick and demonic. It is a sign of serious mental illness that is a threat to society.

They keep pushing the envelope with this vile behavior, moving the goalpost each time in trying to get the public to accept the unacceptable as normal behavior and next thing you know, they will are going to try to excuse secretly spying on underage children in their homes and bathrooms in states of undress. Some are already engaging in this abominable conduct and deserve to be locked up for a long stretch of time over it, as they are a danger to society. Some are already under indictment and in prison for the aforementioned behavior. 

Congress has not done enough to protect the public from mentally deranged voyeurs. Psychiatry lists voyeurism as a mental disorder. It is nasty. They are also sexual predators. It is not something to be celebrated or encouraged. Many U.S. states have criminal laws against it, but serious, sweeping federal legislation that would cover the entire country needs to be passed to protect the public.
