Hulk Hogan wins sex tape lawsuit.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

MIAMI — Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan (a.k.a. Terry Bollea) just received a lump sum of cash for having sex. Well, there’s more to it than that. On Friday, the Hulkster was awarded $115 million in his sex tape lawsuit against Gawker Media — the company that posted a pornographic video in 2012 of him bangin’ his former best friend’s wife. Hogan sued for $100 million, claiming his privacy was violated. The Florida jury reached the decision less than six hours after deliberations began. The trial lasted 2 weeks.

As the verdict was being read, Hogan started crying. Gawker founder Nick Denton plans to appeal based on evidence that wasn’t presented in court. “Given the key evidence and the most important witness in this case were withheld from the jury, we all knew the appeals court would need to resolve this case,” Denton said.

Hogan’s legal team also released a statement: “We’re exceptionally happy with the verdict. We think it represents a statement as to the public’s disgust with the invasion of privacy disguised as journalism. The verdict says no more.”

  1. I know next to nothing about this case, but I know this… No matter how famous you are and how long you have made a career successful based on your celebrity, you still have the same right to privacy as anyone else and anyone who films you in any private place without your permission that then goes on to release that content publicly for their own gain is already wrong and in violation of the law and common decency 3 times at the very base of things.

  2. Gawker’s defense was ridiculous. They tried to claim freedom of speech. Really? Try claiming that if you post a private video of the Obamas on your web site. Or the Clintons. Or any
    other powerful political person. People have a right to privacy no matter their degree of fame. Nick Denton is a crass man on the wrong side of history.

  3. I was never a Hulkamaniac. I was more of a Macho Man fan, but man, I gotta say Hogan has fallen so far. His career is tarnished beyond repair. He should have never agreed to that reality show. Once you let people see all your personal business, it’s all gone. I guess this win is a victory, but he lost a ton of respect. It’s like reading a stars autobiography and discovering you really don’t like them anymore.

  4. Good, i’m glad he won. Unfortunately all he could do was sue for money but the media does not have the right to do things like this people..there has to be a limit. Regardless of the moral issue, this is not right, I feel for him and the lady involved, they did not deserve this -how humiliating. Sometimes I do feel bad for celebrities and this is definitely a case and point..just because they are rich and famous doesn’t make it ok for people to exploit, embarrass and make money off them. Team Hogan!!!!

  5. only in America. here we have a guy who is huge, bald, and unattractive who hypes up his muscles, gets spotted by the greatest carnival barker of all time, vince McMahon, and is turned into this wrestling icon. he spends his whole life with a limited wrestling ability but maintains his iconic image, and earns millions. so his career flaming out due to injury, age, and effects of muscle enhancers, he has a fling with his best friends wife who cheats on him. somehow the episode is taped, and he has the unmitigated gall to sue over this invasion. what’s worse is he wins!! 115 million and he only asked for 100?!! so now, his own marriage over in divorce, his kids can’t stand him and what he did to their mom, he rides off into the spotlight, I means sunset, with millions of dollars for cheating with his best friend’s wife. what a guy!!!! only in this country!!!

  6. If you’re rich and famous, an inconvenience to you is worth a thousand times more than an ordinary person’s life. Consider this, that sportscaster won $55 million for sex tapes, and Hulk Hogan won $115 million for sex tapes. But if medical malpractice costs you your life, your family will be lucky to get $100,000. In America, even human life has a monetary value, and ordinary people are considered practically worthless.

  7. If somebody looks at you sideways today, sue them for $500 Million dollars. Ham it up a little for the jury about how psychologically scarred for life you feel you are, and if you have a halfway decent lawyer, the Numb nuts that make up today’s juries are likely to award you a cool $100 million or more. The Decline of Western Civilization has been fast forwarded.
