Furious Goldmans to Hulk: “Grow Up!”

The family of slain Ron Goldman lashes out at Hulk's pro-OJ comments

Andre the Giant isn't Hulk Hogan's only enemy anymore -- now, he's got an entire family on his back.

The family of Ron Goldman, the man murdered along with O.J. Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown in 1995, is lashing out at the pro wrestler, who said yesterday that he could understand why Simpson could've stabbed Goldman and Brown to death.

"O.J. consumed two lives to feed his insane ego," Goldman's father, Fred told Us magazine through his lawyer, David Cook. "Mr. Hogan should dial down the rage ... grow up."

Goldman's sister Kim said the comments were "disturbing."

"It's sick to me that people throw around violence so whimsically. That has always bothered me. Then there's the part of me that thinks, well at least he thinks he did it. The warped part of me," an emotional Goldman said in response to Hogan.

Hogan told Rolling Stone magazine that when he saw his ex-wife Linda with "some shaggy-haired pool boy," he was so angry he could've pulled a knife on the couple. 

"I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like O.J., cutting everybody's throat," Hogan told Rolling Stone, the New York Post reported.

"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 O.J. I get it," he said.

Hogan's comments were "vile," Kim Goldman said.

"It's vile to speak of anybody in that way and it's hurtful, demeaning and so many layers of ugliness attached to it. I'm always very sensitive to people saying they would kill someone," she said.

Linda Hogan, 49, allegedly spent $40,000 of the Hulk's dough a month and forced him out of the couple's $18 million mansion in Florida, according to the Post.

Hulk's rep issued a statement saying that the wrestler "in no way condones the OJ situation."

"As part of a larger conversation, he referred to it to exemplify his frustration with his own situation," the statement read.
