In light of the fallout surrounding Hulk Hogan’s racist comments that leaked online on Friday and made headlines worldwide, Hogan’s lawyer David Houston spoke to FOX 411 and was asked if he thinks Gawker released the sex tape transcript to damage Hogan’s image and sway the jury in their ongoing $100 million lawsuit. Houston said:
“I have my suspicions, as you can imagine. If I can find out it is Gawker who leaked the transcripts, we will bury them.”
“Hulk Hogan has only one person to blame for what he said and no one from Gawker had any role in leaking that information.”
Houston said that Hogan is devastated by those comments being released to the public and defends that his client is not a racist.
“He sincerely apologizes to his family, friends and fans.” Houston added, “He is not a racist. His history defines him as something different.”
