My grandpa is a lampshade, goyim.
That’s why we show your sex videos.
Pro wrestling legend Hulk Hogan suffered a sneak attack worse than any he faced in the ring when Gawker posted secretly recorded video of him having sex with a friend’s wife, his lawyer told a Florida jury Monday morning.
Lawyer Shane Vogt said the news and gossip site “wanted to inflict harm, and they wanted to make money” by exploiting the moment of weakness when Hogan “gave in to temptation” and bedded the wife of radio host “Bubba the Love Sponge,” who was, at the time, a pal of the wrestler and reality TV personality.
Vogt noted that Gawker marketed the Hogan video as “the heavyweight champ of sex tapes” and alleged that the gossip site’s staffers had joked about whether “his penis was wearing a doo-rag.”
Hogan is famous for wearing a bandanna over his head, and he wore one to court on Monday.
“He was engaged in one of the most intimate acts in that bedroom, and they make a conscious decision to expose him to the entire world,” Vogt said during opening statements in Hogan’s $100 million invasion-of-privacy case, which could bankrupt Gawker if it loses.
“It wasn’t a story about political corruption. It wasn’t a story about a mayor smoking crack. It was a porn video that was secretly recorded without someone’s consent.”
During the defense opening, Gawker lawyer Michael Berry attacked Hogan’s suit as a naked grab for “lots and lots of money,” and contended that company founder Nick Denton had acted with the purest of motives.
Berry noted that Denton’s mom was a Hungarian Jew “who survived the Nazis” before escaping the Soviet occupation and fleeing to England at age 18.
“Mr. Denton grew up with parents who’ve seen first-hand what happens when speech is suppressed,” Berry said.
“He wants the public to have the simple, unvarnished truth … the unvarnished truth about public figures.”
The sex video destroyed Hogan’s career – not because he was having sex with his friend’s wife, but because he said the n-word (“nigger”) when they were talking after the intercourse.
Hogan has been banned from everything for saying this evil word, which no one is ever allowed to say. Because it hurts people’s feelings. And after all these Jews got gassed and made into lampshades, we simply cannot afford to hurt people’s feelings.
