It looks like WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan's celebrity status and general openness about his personal life may have come back to haunt him, as the Hulkster was denied in his recent court case against Gawker.com. Hogan was attempting to have the sex tape footage removed from the website, but was denied in court by federal judge James D. Whittemore.
"Plaintiff's public persona, including the publicity he and his family derived from a television reality show detailing their personal life, his own book describing an affair he had during his marriage, prior reports by other parties of the existence and content of the Video, and Plaintiff's own public discussion of issues relating to his marriage, sex life, and the Video all demonstrate that the Video is a subject of general interest and concern to the community."
