Photo: Jordan Michael Zuniga

Like many men and women before her, Brooke Hogan just went naked to help raise money for PETA. Miami photographer and PETA supporter Jordan Michael Zuniga created an exhibit that seeks to compare the treatment of animals to the treatment of women. One group in real cages. The other in metaphorical cages. Proceeds from the photographs will go to PETA.

However, the fact that Brooke brought her father Hulk Hogan to the exhibit is stirring up more controversy than the actual photo.

For a while now, people have been making jokes about the close relationship Brooke shares with her dad. Whether it’s the gossip blogs posting pictures of her dad putting sunscreen on her butt, or some other bit of ridiculousness, his presence at the opening made the Internet make even more suggestive comments about their relationship. Now, Brooke has had enough.

She tweeted, “I’m SO sick of people saying me and my dad are in some perverted relationship! Go home and do your own thing! Stop picking on me!”

It’s not like the reality star was actually naked. One could argue she’s more covered than a woman at the beach. Hulk Hogan even made the joke for photographers at the event of covering her up further with his hands. But with their relationship already under the microscope, his presence there just added to the silly speculation.

The exhibit will remain up for viewing through September 10th at the Cafeina in Wynwood.
