Hulk Hogan Sex Tape to Be Played in Court — Objection, Your Honor!
A dozen people will see a side of Hulk Hogan they may never have wanted to see, as a Florida court has decreed his sex tape will be played for the jury in the trial regarding his lawsuit against Gawker Media.
In case you’re not up to speed, the former wrestler is suing Gawker for $100 million in damages over the release of the tape. Hulk says the site leaked portions of the tape to the National Enquirer — which then reported on the racial epithets Hulk says in the video — in an effort to weaken his invasion-of-privacy suit.
“When the video is played for the jury at trial, the monitors shall be turned in such a way so that only the jury, the parties, their trial counsel, and court personnel may see the video,” Florida Circuit Court Judge Pamela Campbell says in a ruling obtained by RadarOnline.com.
“The public and press shall not be excluded from the courtroom when the video is played, and the pooled camera shall not be turned off during such time,” she continues. (To us, that means everyone else in the room will be subjected to the audio of the sex tape.)
As for those members of jury, our support (if not our eyes) are with them.
