Hulk Hogan leg drops Gawker on Twitter after $140 million judgment
Pro wrestling legend Hulk Hogan was awarded a total of $140 million in damages by a Florida jury - $55 million for economic harm, $60 million for emotional distress, and $25 million in punitive damages - in his case against Gawker. Gawker published a portion of a sex tape featuring Hogan in 2012, which the jury ruled was an invasion of privacy. Gawker plans to appeal the judgment.

Hogan was in tears Friday when the compensatory damages were awarded, and after the jury reconvened to tack on another $25 million Monday, Hogan celebrated the decision with photoshop on Twitter of himself delivering a signature leg drop to Gawker.
This isn't the first time Hogan's run wild on Twitter during the case.
