Hulk Hogan suing Gawker for allegedly leaking his racist tirade
Hulk Hogan is trying to take down Gawker one more time.
After his $140 million legal victory against the gossip website, the famous pro wrestler has filed a second lawsuit over his surreptitiously recorded sex tapes — hitting the site with a new claim for allegedly leaking sealed court documents to the National Enquirer that quoted him making racists remarks.
In a 2007 encounter with his best friend’s wife, Hogan unleashed an ugly tirade about his daughter Brooke’s black boyfriend.
“I mean, I’d rather if she was going to f–k some n—-r, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n—-r worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. F—ing n—-r,” Hogan said, according to a transcript of the recording.
WWE immediately fired Hogan, scrubbing his name from its website and Hall of Fame.
