In the new issue of Rolling Stone, Hulk Hogan said in part in that interview:
"I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody’s throat."
"You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can’t go to anymore, you’re driving through downtown Clearwater, Florida and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife…"
"I totally understand OJ. I get it."
Linda’s rep, Gary Smith, then released this statement from Linda Hogan, who used the opportunity to show her own hostility toward Hulk:
"Hulk’s serial cheating destroyed our marriage, our family and our future. Sadly, his recent comments remind us that his definition of fair is much different than what the law dictates."
"We have always maintained that the fear that Linda has had to live with comes from the rage and instability much too often associated with pro wrestlers. Linda and her family are taking these recent homicidal comments seriously. Linda’s attorney Ray Rafool is weighting all options necessary to protect his client."
Hulk Hogan’s rep then released a statement on Wednesday saying:
"Hulk in no way condones the OJ situation. As part of a larger conversation, he referred to it to exemplify his frustration with his own situation."
Hulk said in a recent interview that the Rolling Stone interview went on over three days, and he pointed out:
"I didn’t do the OJ Simpson thing. I took the high road."
Just mentioning OJ freaks some people out, mostly those people who haven’t had to walk in Hulk’s shoes in this divorce. Everyone is looking for a villain, and Hulk made himself that villain by opening his mouth. Hulk should have known better, and now it could make his divorce outcome worse for him. Hulk’s kids on the other hand won’t shy away from dad. They’ll be spending as much time with him now as they ever have, because they don’t believe dad meant anything more than he was frustrated, and was a bigger man than OJ by taking the high road, rather than the low road Linda is on.
We get what Hulk really meant, but why does he have to make such dumb statements at such dumb times? This isn’t the first time.
