Take the latest episode of celebtard divorce "news:"
HULK Hogan is sounding homicidal over the way his wife Linda dumped him, forced him out of his $18 million mansion, allegedly started spending his money at the rate of $40,000 a month and dating "some shaggy-haired pool boy 30 years her junior," Rolling Stone reports. "I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody's throat," he told the magazine. "You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can't go to anymore, you're driving through downtown Clearwater 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."
My wife watches our local news every morning while we get ready for work (mainly for the traffic and weather reports), and the news, both local and national all had headlines about Hulk "Understands O.J." and "threatens to murder his ex-wife and her boyfriend!"
People are all outraged that the Hulkster would DARE To 'threaten' his ex-wife! How Dare he interfere with her love life! His Lawyer was than given a few minutes of airtime to talk about how this is indicative of how Linda Hogan "lived in fear" while she was married to Hulk.
While Hulk should have realized that citing OJ would be a VERY negative reflection on himself and potentially devastate his pending divorce...I think that had he simply said "You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can't go to anymore, you're driving through downtown Clearwater 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 . . .it's outrageous!"
I doubt a word of his truth would have been reported.
This also signals just how feminized our mainstream culture has become. Typical masculine anger expressed with hyperbole is now being reported as if Hulk is a raging maniac, a threat to society and a de facto murderer.
But perhaps the subtext will somehow manage to make it's way into at least a few people's minds: that our divorce system is extremely unjust, and that it empowers women to commit acts that can and will drive men to commit acts of violence they would not otherwise even consider.
This case illustrates everything that is wrong with today's divorce court industry.
