It’s the question we’ve all be wondering: Exactly how long is Hulk Hogan‘s penis?
Well, we now have our answer. Sort of.
The former professional wrestler, whose real name is Terry Bollea, is currently suing Gawker Media for $100 million after it published a video, without his consent, of Hogan having sex with best friend’s wife. During Tuesday’s testimony, a big topic arose.
“I do not have a 10-inch penis,” Hogan, er, Bollea said in court on Tuesday. “Terry Bollea’s penis is not 10 inches.” Well, that’s a first. A man downsizing the size of his member.
He was responding to a question posed by Gawker’s lawyer, Michael Sullivan, about a series of interviews he gave to Bubba The Love Sponge Show and the Howard Stern Show where he suggested his manhood was two inches shy of a Subway footlong.
Bollea said he was only playing a part when he said those things, and that they were never meant to be taken seriously.
“I was totally Hulk Hogan [during the interviews] because I wasn’t at home in my private house,” he testified.
Bollea went on to say that he did not take issue with Gawker discussing the existence of his now infamous sex tape, acknowledging that that sort of thing comes with the territory when one is a celebrity. But when the website actually published the video, he says, his “life was turned upside down.”
“I never had a problem with the article,” he said. “My problem is the videotape. It’s on the Internet. It lives forever.”
He added that the publication of the video left him “humiliated.”
“I haven’t been able to get myself back up since the Gawker sex tape,” he testified. “I’m not the same person since all this craziness happened.”
The trial continues.
