Gawker Refuses to Take Down Hulk Hogan's Sex Tape Narrative

April 30, 2013 08:40:09 GMT


Hulk Hogan may be upset because legal battle against Gawker, which posted his sex tape, is getting hotter. Hogan, who won a restraining order from Judge Pamela Campbell to keep the site from posting the sex video, found that Gawker only removed the footage from the site, but did not delete the description of the video. In addition, Gawker provides a link to another website that presents the X-rated video.

In a long piece written by John Cook, Gawker argued that the 1,400-word narrative content made by its former editor A.J. Daulerio, was Daulerio's speech. The description was the work of the former editor, so it was protected by freedom of speech. "A lawful order from a circuit court judge is a serious thing. While we vehemently disagree with Campbell's order with respect to the video itself, we have chosen to take it down pending our appeal. But the portion of the order compelling us to remove the entirety of Daulerio's post - his words, his speech - is grossly unconstitutional. We won't take it down," Cook said. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gawker has appealed the ruling.

In less than a month after releasing his controversial new single "I Hit First", hip-hop/R'n'B singer Ray J unveiled its music video on Monday, April 29 to the amusement of critics and the general public over its utter lack of subtlety. Despite the clear lyrical references capped off by the Kim Kardashian doppelganger he got for his new clip, the 32-year-old crooner maintains the song is not about her former sex tape partner.

"I think people [are] digging into it too deep. It's a song, we just having fun. I'm not trying to create no war. It's all love," Ray J answered when asked about the obvious Kim K. references but the visuals tell otherwise. The private jet shots with him and her look-a-like and the hand-held camera filming scenes with her rolling around in bed are a total giveaway.
