Hulk Hogan filed a new lawsuit against Gawker Media this week, alleging they leaked the sealed transcript from one of his sex tapes that featured his racist tirade. This of course is what cost him his job with WWE, something Hogan alleges cut off his income, damaged his legacy and tarnished his global brand forever.
Gawker responded with a statement:
“This is getting ridiculous. Hulk Hogan is a litigious celebrity abusing the court system to control his public image and media coverage. As we’ve said before and are happy to say again: Gawker did not leak the information. It’s time for Hulk Hogan to take responsibility for his own words, because the only person who got Hulk Hogan fired from the WWE is Hulk Hogan.”
