Hulk with his wife and daughter in 2011.
Remember those photos of Hulk Hogan lovingly spreading suntan lotion on his daughter Brooke’s butt (crack)? (Those photos are here.) Then he had several other questionable incidents with Brooke, including flashing her his member in some bizarre promo for a video game, and attending the gallery opening for Brooke’s semi-nude photos. For her part, Brooke has denied having any kind of “perverted relationship” with her dad, although I guess she can’t deny that her dad is a pervert.
Also Hulk’s second wife, Jennifer McDaniel, is a dead ringer for Brooke. (Although to his credit McDaniel is in her late 30s. His ex wife Linda, 52, was dating a guy in his early 20s for years. The kid was just 19 when they met.)
Anyway Hulk’s latest move was to tweet this photo of his daughter’s legs, like he’s proud of them:
This is creepy, but compared to a lot of other things Hulk has done it’s not that bad. That’s very relative of course, and when taken as a whole it’s disturbing. Oh and I forgot the fact that Hulk cheated on his then-wife, Linda, with Brooke’s best friend. The best friend was older than Brooke at least, she was 33. I don’t know why I’m making excuses for these people. They’re trashy all around. I guess the Internet exposes these things that I would rather not think about. This being the biggest one. I can’t believe I watched it.
Hulk has responded to this controversy on Twitter. He wrote:
Brooke works out for 2hrs a day,a fan takes a picture,Brooke love it,tweets back thank u,proud dad tweets it,creeps and perverts everywhere

Yes, this is creepy. I’m not saying he has sexual feelings towards his daughter. But he does see her in a sexual way. He emphasizes her sexuality, he flaunts it and takes pride in it. And that is creepy.
And his wife and daughter look like twins. Also creepy.
ITA…I don’t think it’s sexualized but yeah, it’s creepy x1000. It might be that he’s proud of how his daughter looks but his way of showing it is strange.
The ick factor is off the charts, IMO.
Nothing could be creepier than his s*x tape.
I believe “piteous” is the word you’re looking for.
i just can’t with this family. i remember i actually enjoyed that Hogan Knows Best show and all that shit hit the fan and i had to stop watching. obviously hulk hogan has a type, unfortunately, it was based off his own daughter. and it’s weird because brooke and her mom kind of look alike (or the same type of look), but then me and my mom look similar, and it’s not like my dad is going around snapping photos of my legs. yeah, they are insane.
His wife & daughter look like trannys.What an awful looking family potrait.
Brooke does look like a tranny when she wears makeup but without it she actually looks pretty and feminine. She’s one of those women who look better without makeup.
Please dont insult “trannies” (or transsexuals), I know a few and they have more self-dignity and respect, and they look soooo much beter than these trashy losers!
Also stop using transphobic slurs, everyone!
I have known a lot of bodybuilders, and there is an appreciation for the aesthetic there. I think he was appreciating her form, but not in a gross way, just in a, she looks great way. I have had semi-nude photos taken of myself that my dad has seen. While he will say in one breath “put on a shirt” (LOL) he’ll also say they are good photos. He’s too old to tweet, but if I had legs like Brooke’s, I think he’d think they looked good. Just because you admire someone’s form doesn’t mean you have sexual thoughts about him/her.
Would he tweet a picture of you though? “Look at my daughter’s legs?”
ITA, Darlene. Bodybuilders have an appreciation for the aesthetic. They spend hours in the gym and their body is their temple. I think Hulk is appreciating Brooke. I don’t see anything sexual about his tweet but I understand the yuck feeling expressed by most here. This family does not have the best history in terms of displaying discretion. Hulk rubbing lotion on Brooke’s ass and other such incidents is gross. The reaction for his tweet is therefore not surprising.
I totally agree. I have many friends who are really gungho about working out and that “WOD” and just going for that all out workout and then basking in each others back pounds. I am not in that frame of mind at all but thats all i see this as.
Ewe. On so many levels, just ewe.
I agree. It’s so baah-ad! (sorry, I couldn’t resist, because of the “ewe” :).
Anyway, that just made me throw up in my mouth a little.
Avert your eyes little hulksters!
Ick. This whole family does creepy stuff.
I don’t know. My dad has never and will never look at me in a sexual way, not even to give a compliment. Now granted, my dad is a bit of a prude, but then again I wouldn’t WANT him saying “nice legs babe” or whatever. It creeps me out enough when my father-in-law does it.
I’m going to play Devil’s Advocate here. It seems Hulk Hogan has a “type”. His first wife, Linda, is that type, as is his second wife. Brooke is Linda’s daughter. Can we really be surprised that Brooke looks like her mother? and has adopted the same style?
If you remember the 80s, do you picture Hulk Hogan wearing a shirt? I get the idea that showing your body off is par for the course in this family.
I don’t like these people but I have to agree with you. Women who look like Linda are his type. Fake blonde, fake tan, fake boobs (etc…) which 90% of the women in that area do … And Brooke grew up to greatly resemble her mother.
Funny you mention she fake tans. I had to read Hulk’s tweet about 10 times before I realise it’s actually ‘fan takes’ not ‘fake tans’.
And they both look an awful lot like female versions of him. A tad narcissistic I’d say!
I truly do not think Hulk has sexual feelings for his daughter. I watched their show and he reminded me of my dad – very close, very proud and very protective. When it comes to Hulk I think he just lacks discretion and tact. He doesn’t take into account how people will interpret this stuff. He does seem like a good dad though, he is very proud of her.
Yeah I agree with you, Smokey.
I grew up in a family where the lines were very clearly drawn when it comes to sexuality but I had friends that had a more casual relationship with their parents and I could see something like this occurring. I would never automatically associate it with abuse or dirtiness, just a different family dynamic.
Yeah I agree.
Ewwkay. That’s all I have to say about that.
All of those incidents are okay on their own, but when you put them together it’s mega creepy. Ugh.
He definitely has questionable feelings for her. Why did he have to apply suntan in her buttcrack so close to her vag that time? Why apply suntan exactly on her ass at all? Remember that time she got on the stripper pole? There was nobody more into it than him. And in his sex tape Gawker says her sexy song is his ringtone.
This is just not normal and I kinda worry for the women here who have no problem with it. No father should be checking you out and saying you have great ass and legs. He’s grosser than Joe Simpson was ever made out to be.
At least she had the sense and modesty to put her hand between her legs in those photos so we don’t have to look at her lady parts. Of course she could’ve worn a more sensible dress, but this is a Hogan we’re talking about.
Brooke is showing a lot of mileage. Every time I see a pic of her my first instinct is that it’s her mother.
Dad’s can be proud of their daughters for maintaining healthy eating habits and workout routines but tweeting two words “Brooke’s legs” along with a picture of Brooke in a mini dress that barely covers her butt is really creepy and inappropriate considering everything that’s happened in the past with this family!
And what about her nice arms? Are they not worth tweeting about too? -.-
He could have said so much more if he was truely proud of his daughters healthy physique and routine!
I don’t think they have… ew… hot God… “relations” or that he’s molesting her, honestly. Because usually incestuous family members are super secretive, and these people clearly… aren’t.
But whipping your d**k out in front of your daughter and GIVING HER A SENSUOUS RUB-DOWN is sick. My brothers and I were hanging out in the yard last summer and one of them was shirtless. My dad barked at him to put a shirt on in front of his sister. Seriously. Dads should be all about protecting their daughter’s virtue, even if the girls roll their eyes about it later on.
i used to love him but now he is just pathetic.
BTW Who´s the daughter and who´s the new wife?
Hulk is a creepy sleaze-bag to begin with. Had any other father tweeted something like this about his daughter it would have been- I dunno. Less offensive, maybe?
When the Hulkster does it, it makes my skin crawl. ICK.
LOL WE ALL REMEMBER HER “SINGING CAREER”
LOL LOL .SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS WHEN YOUR LOOKS ARE ALLLLLLLLLL YOU HAVE.
I like the Hogans, especially Linda.
I think this may be a bunch of incidents strung together to cause a seriously warped public misunderstanding. At least I hope it’s not as nasty as people are thinking it is…
I get the impression that he is more aware of her physique because she’s a gym rat and like he is/was – so it’s more like two people with a platonic appreciation of their bodies and the work they’ve done… not so much a sexual thing. I get the idea he probably gives her all sorts of advice on how to tone up, how not to strain things, etc.
Once you look at it that way, even the snapshot of the massage might not have been as gross as everyone is making it out to be – maybe he didn’t “linger” ? I don’t think of my masseuse as a pervert when he does deep tissue massages on my glutes.
As for the video… I wish I could unsee that… why did I even go there? lol I think he was hooking up with her for cash. ugh.
nah, i agree with other posters. more of hulk expressing his pride that she works out so much, not him ogling her. overreaction. i think in his mind, she’s his little girl still, so when he’s putting lotion on her, he’s taking care of his little girl, not a sexual thing. my opinion!
i remember when i was in my 20s, my dad and i used to go out and do stuff together. sometimes, women would look at us funny. later on in life, i realized that to people who didn’t know us, they prob thought i was his young gf. esp since i look like my mom, nothing like my dad! so i think people are making something out of nothing, here, too!
Taking care of his little girl by putting lotion on her butt-crack?!
And it’s very clear he does not see her as a little girl. He sees her as a sex object. It’s disgusting.
My dad and I went out to dinner and museums and etc. all the time when I was in my early 20s. We still would if we lived near each other. I’m an only child, my parents divorced, that’s what happens. And he would never EVER have done ANYTHING like what Hulk Hogan does. Because my father sees me as his daughter and a human being, not a sex object. And also, ICK.
