Hulk Hogan clarifies O.J. Simpson commentsApril 17th, 2009 - 6:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 17 (ANI): Former wrestler Hulk Hogan has clarified the comments he made in a new Rolling Stone magazine interview about the O.J. Simpson murder trial.
Simpson was acquitted of killing his wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman in 1993, reports the Daily Express.
In the article, Hogan admits that he can understand what drives a man to kill his wife after battling his ex Linda in the divorce courts.
He admitted during the interview that he was tempted to attack his wife ‘like O.J.’
However, Hulk’s comments enraged Linda, who told U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, “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.”
Her rep said: “We are taking these recent comments seriously… 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.”
But a rep for the wrestling superstar said, “Hulk in no way condones the O.J. situation. As part of a larger conversation, he referred to it to exemplify his frustration with his own situation.” (ANI)
