Gawker got hit again, including three people that work for them. Another 25.1m in damages.

I see that.

But I doubt any of this is going to hold up under appeal. The appeals court has ordered the unsealing of 1000 or so pages of court documents that the judge in this case ordered sealed and kept out of evidence. And its kind of a shit show that also happens to show Hogan and his wife lying under oath in this case. The judge in question also has a bit of a history of being a jackass and getting overturned by higher courts.

Specifically, this judge use to be the attorney in the Terri Schiavo case fighting to keep her alive in a vegetative state against the husband. Getting appointed to the bench as a judge was her reward from Jeb Bush. Since then she's basically been an asshole in her rulings. ( Case in point: She allowed a juror to ask a member of Jezebel if she had slept her way to getting a job with Gawker ).

So, yeah, this is a trial between assholes, judged by an asshole with a jury full of assholes.

Not really the heat of the moment. Dude has a history with such language and besides its the heat of the moment where people's true nature is likely to spill out. I mean these aren't just slips of the tongue:


I don’t know if Brooke was fucking the black guy’s son. I mean, I don’t have double standards. I mean, I am racist, to a point. Fucking niggers. But then when it comes to nice people and shit, and whatever…I mean, if she was going to fuck some nigger, I’d rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall nigger worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we’re all a little racist. Fucking nigger.




"You know that God gave you this vibe and this, this, energy that you and I are going to live forever, bro," Hogan said. "I just hope we don't come back as a couple, I don't want to say it, blizz-ack gizz-uys, you know what I'm saying?"


Then there's the homophobic slurs. So, yeah, this isn't just some little oopsie. You don't oopsie your way into "fucking niggers".




Yes, that is a slip of the tongue if one is drunk, horny, and extremely stressed out.


His daughter, whom he was estranged from, is even the source for the statement, further revealing it was due to his mental state, not his innate character.


And that second quote, does that sound like the rambling of someone who is speaking from a source of personal certainty, or someone tripping balls?

Actually the source is the tapes this whole case is about. -.-

And no, people don't normally de-evolve into racist rants when they're stressed out ( unless they're Hulk Hogan or Mel Gibson ). This cost him his entire career.

That is part of a conversation he had over the prison phone system with his son.

Why are you defending a racist shithead so much? ;p

Which was filmed when he was going through the divorce, sons trial, and estrangement from his daughter.



And yes, when people are stressed out they will sometimes lash out at anyone, especially if it is a boyfriend of his estranged daughter who he can project his feelings onto.

Because unlike you tolerant liberals, compassion is a trait of conservatives.
