Wrestler punishes website with a leg drop after being awarded $140 million from them in court
Ouch. Talk about adding injury to financial devastation.
Hours after Hulk Hogan was awarded $25 million in punitive damages from Gawker, in addition to the $115 million he was awarded last week, the wrestler laid another smackdown on the website, this time on social media.
Hogan celebrated his victory against Gawker by posting a picture of himself executing a leg drop on the Gawker logo.
“Thank you God, I am grateful, ‘I AM THAT I AM,'” Hogan wrote, adding, “Only love HH.”
According to the timestamp on the image, the post was published at 2:35 a.m., so yeah … that’s how the Hulkster spent the wee hours of Tuesday morning.
Hogan was awarded $115 million after a jury found that his privacy was invaded when Gawker published a portion of a sex tape featuring himself and the then-wife of his friend, Todd “Bubba the Love Sponge” Clem.
On Monday, jurors tacked on an additional $25 million in punitive damages.
During the trial, Hogan testified that his world was turned “upside down” by the publication of the footage.
Looks like he’s once again right side up — and coming down fast.
