Probably Not a Smart Thing to Say

Hulk Hogan, what the hell were you thinking when you said all this crap.

(CNN) -- Pro wrestling legend Hulk Hogan, embroiled in a bitter divorce with his wife, Linda, told Rolling Stone magazine he can "totally understand" O.J. Simpson, the former football great found liable for the deaths of his wife and another man.

"I could have turned everything into a crime scene like O.J., cutting everybody's throat," Hogan said in the interview for a feature that will run in Friday's edition of 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 [Florida] 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 O.J. I get it," Hogan said

A spokeswoman for Rolling Stone magazine confirmed the quote to CNN.

It has been widely reported that Linda Hogan, 49, is dating a younger man. She filed for divorce in 2007 after nearly 25 years of marriage.

True, probably not a smart thing to say, but who can blame him for thinking it?

I feel bad for Hulk Hogan. I think what happened to him is unfair and his ex-wife is having some kind of mid-life crisis, but to say he understands a narcissist, who has no feeling for other human beings? The 2 cases are totally different. It was a stupid thing to say.

We've all forgotten that OJ was acquitted. He's legally innocent. So this was stupid to say in that regard to; he could be sued.

M,

I can understand his thinking in it, but that is the sort of thing that you can't say anymore.

Anon,

I can't say who is right or wrong in Hogan case. All I know is that today that kind of talk can get you in a lot of trouble.

V-Grrrl,

Very true. OJ might need a little cash and see this as an option.
