Hulk Hogan filing another lawsuit against Gawker for allegedly leaking racist comments resulting in WWE contract termination

Hogan lawsuit against Gawker

According to a report by The New York Post, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan is filing yet another lawsuit against media website Gawker for allegedly leaking his racist comments last July. Hogan’s lawsuit claim is regarding the leaked sealed court documents to the National Enquirer that quoted him making racists remarks, which resulted in his firing from WWE.

WWE immediately released Hulk Hogan after after comments were made public from a recording back in 2007 that featured Hogan making racist comments about his daughter Brooke’s then boyfriend. Hogan previously won a lawsuit against Gawker back in March where he was awarded $140 million over the release of a sex tape.

The lawsuit notes a loss of income for Hogan after his WWE release:

“His income was cut off, his legacy in entertainment was severely damaged (if not completely destroyed), and his global brand was forever tarnished.”
