Hulk Hogan may have dropped his lawsuit against one-time best friend Bubba The Love Sponge over the radio personality’s role in the sex tape leak, but that doesn’t mean the former WWE Champion is through delivering legal leg drops to all the websites that are still housing images or clips of the footage. After winning a temporary restraining order against Gawker, the website that originally published the footage, the Hulkster has reportedly moved on to all of the other places on the Internet where some of his sexual exploits can be viewed.
According to TMZ, numerous websites have been hit with cease and desist letters from Hogan’s team of lawyers. If all the offending footage isn’t taken down immediately, the wrestler will reportedly go to court to make a court force the non-compliant website into stripping the footage from their site. For all of the major outlets, the game plan will likely work eventually, but the problem with the Internet is that it’s simply way too large to enforce. Consequently, scrubbing a clip from the net completely is like playing an endless game of Whac-A-Mole, and ain’t nobody got time for that.
It’s easy to see why the Hulkster is perturbed about having his wang displayed on the Internet. Unlike a solid majority of celebrities with sex tapes who just want to make money and/ or increase their fame levels, Hogan never wanted any part of this. That being said, now that he’s in the position he’s in, he might be better off just moving on with his life.
