It’s the weev show!

The world’s most famous troll explains the infamous Ashley Madison cheating site hack and leak. He’s done it in the form of a monologue on YouTube because as he explained on Twitter, Vice asked him for a video interview about it, he quoted a payment rate of one Bitcoin per hour, and they refused. Clearly he has taken the point of view that he is the performer (see this SAG/AFTRA rate card PDF referenced by weev for comparison purposes) whereas Vice has taken the point of view that he is material, and material does not get compensated. Most tv guests at least have a book to shill, or a political agenda that’ll make them rich over time.

weev is just weev.

In the video, he explains how he sifted through the leaked documents from the Adult Friendfinder leak and then Ashley Madison later for government email addresses and used those to tweet embarrassingly about those individuals, whom he calls out by name. And then he calls out, also by name, the media outlets who used his work without citing him, and then, naturally, goes off on a tangent about white European men and The Jews, because…it’s weev.

The actual hack explanation begins after the three minute mark here, so if you’re tight on time skip the preamble about Vice, Semites, and so on.
