Hulk Hogan Vows Lawsuit Against Publisher of Sex Tape
According to TMZ, a sex tape released of Hulk Hogan will bring legal ramifications if it is not removed from the internet. A clip, lasting one minute, from the video was posted by Gawker on Thursday. Sources close to the former wrestler say that the clip will not be up on the site for long because he has created a cease-and-desist letter that will be sent to Gawker. The letter demands that the video be removed from the site.
The former wrestler said that Gawker has no right to post the video footage and that he will sue if it is not removed in haste. Hogan’s lawyer is David R. Houston, said, “This tape was made secretly without Hulk’s knowledge or permission. We are going to do everything in our power to figure out who did it. Anyone displaying the tape will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”
The sex tape featuring Hulk was being shopped to multiple media outlets earlier in 2012. In April, screenshots of the video made it to the internet. The video made its internet debut just this week. Gawker claims that it was given the video free of charge from an anonymous source. Hogan vowed to sue whoever published the video as soon as news surfaced that there was a video.
