Linda Hogan Fed Up With Verbal Abuse From Hulk's Fans

June 17, 2009 Linda Hogan

On the heels of the Hulk and Linda Hogan divorce fall-out, multiple rounds of inflammatory verbal barbs are being shot at Linda by some of Hulk's fiercest supporters. In recent weeks, bullish remarks from the former WWF star and radio personality friend Bubba the Love Sponge have stirred up anti-Linda sentiment and prompted online assaults from 'Bubba's Army'.

Hulk's heated on-air comments are part of a recent media campaign seemingly designed to vilify his ex-wife. When recalling the maddening aftermath of his divorce battle, the pro wrestling star told Rolling Stone "I totally understand O.J." Hulk later apologized for mirroring his personal turmoil with that of the Simpson double murder case.

Linda responded that constant battering from Hulk fans is "disturbing". Through a recent press statement, she pleaded, "I'm simply trying to move on with my life and these people won't let me live in peace. I just want them to leave me alone. I'm afraid of them; the things they say are frightening and vicious. These are dangerously disturbed people."

A representative for Linda, Gary Smith, further expounded upon the egregious threats directed at his client. "These threats are coming from Bubba the Love Sponge's listeners or 'Bubba's Army' as they call themselves... It's pretty obvious Hulk and his long time pal Bubba are behind it."

Smith claims Bubba "instructed listeners to verbally attack Linda if they see her in public". Along with nasty cyberbullying on Myspace and acts of vandalism against Linda's personal property, the former "Hogan Knows Best" matriarch "often feels like she is being ambushed."

Linda's attorney team is now in consultation over how to fight back. "We know who they are, and we are dealing with it legally," warns Smith.

The possibility of a lawsuit being brought against Hulk and Cox Broadcasting, the owners of Bubba's radio program, is not off the table.
