Hey 3.5 brothers.
BQB here. Have you read the news that Hulk Hogan won $115 million dollars in his lawsuit against Gawker?
The brief rundown – Hulk Hogan was caught on tape having sex with a friend’s wife. Gawker somehow (I haven’t cared enough to find out how) got ahold of it and put a clip on their site.
We could probably debate all day long about whether or not the Hulkster is a good guy or an a-hole. If you’re an 80’s kid, chances are you spent a fair amount of time watching him go toe to toe against the Iron Sheik and you probably have some fond memories of that nonsense.
But then again, he’s had his share of scandals and inappropriate behaviors.
Let’s not get into that.
Instead, let’s get into what this suit means…we are bloggers after all…not at the level that Gawker is at but still, we have to remember to watch our P’s and Q’s lest we end up with a lawsuit of our own.
I’ll bring it down to a debate question – Do you 3.5 readers think a sex tape is newsworthy or does it qualify as something private and not necessary for the public to see?
Personally, I fall on the latter side of this question. No one needs to see the Hulkomaniac go at it, brother.
