When news broke that Hollywood Hogan humped his homie's honey on camera, the media couldn't help but to report it with s**t-slathered smirking.
Keep in mind that this was before we learned that Hulkamania was also a big racist-face, which means these people were taking pot shots purely because they thought this guy looked funny. And while you might not care about the feelings of some rich idiot, when you imagine spending a day of your life reading everywhere about how wizened and silly your dick looks, it's not hard to figure out why he was awarded money for emotional damages.
Because male celebrity sex tapes are treated like a joke. Especially when they are leaked by rubbish, snide sources ...
It's hard to be impressed by a dude's junk when you're a giant dick.
