Peter Thiel Went to Costume Party Dressed as Hulk Hogan Because He Could

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-10-12-01-amPaypal co-founder Peter Thiel attended a soirée in Long Island this weekend, which was attended by major conservative figures like Kellyanne Conway, Nigel Farage, and of course, Donald Trump. The event was a decadent costume party, and according to Bloomberg, Thiel got really meta by going as fellow nemesis of Gawker, Hulk Hogan.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Thiel bankrolled Hogan’s invasion of privacy lawsuit against Gawker Media. The professional wrestler sued the organization for publishing his sex tape. Thiel funded Hogan in retaliation for Gawker previously outing him as gay.

Jurors awarded Hogan a $140 million verdict, which caused Gawker to go bankrupt and auction off its assets.

At least Thiel put more effort into his costume than Trump did.
