Hunter Moore Arrested By FBI – Women Everywhere Smile Uncontrollably

81724825Hunter Moore, purveyor of revenge porn and “most hated man on the Internet” was arrested by federal agents today.

Moore was the owner of the site – which dealt in revenge porn aka – you scorned me so I am going to put all sorts of terrible, intimate photos of you on the web.  His site inspired several others to pop up, but his was by far the most popular – until April of last year, when Moore insisted he had a “change of heart” that inspired him to sell to the anti-bullying site, Bullyville. No one believed him, because he is a vile human being that says things like this:

“I really don’t give a fuck…Why should I care? It’s not my life. It’s literally just a business. It’s stupid not to monetize it.”

He proved just how vile he was later that year, when he launched HunterMoore TV – a site which would have taken the awfulness of revenge porn to the next level by mapping the subjects of the photos with their locations. The site never got off the ground – so in other news there actually is a God – and she’s pissed.

From Time:

The indictment from the United States District Court for the Central District of California charges Moore and a man named Charles “Gary” Evens, 25, with conspiracy to “access a protected computer without authorization to obtain information for private financial gain” and other counts.

On multiple occasions, Moore paid Evens to break into the email accounts of victims and steal nude photos to post on the website, according to the indictment.

The pair are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday afternoon–Moore in federal court in Sacramento and Evens in U.S. district court in Los Angeles.

You can read the full indictment here. This won’t erase the hell he’s put all the victims who appeared on his site through, but today was a good day.

    YES !!!

    Suck it you vile cocktwaddle.

  • CMJ

    There are not enough curse words in the world for this man.

  • Kay_Sue

    So I’m gonna drink to that, then.

  • Frances Locke

    Thank fucking goodness. I hate that fucktard, Like, literally hate. I hope they throw the book at him.

    • Eve Vawter

      I hope they throw a collection of encyclopedias at his smug douchecanoe face

    • Rachel Sea

      One sturdy copy of Miss Manners, wielded properly, would be perfectly adequate.

    • Véronique Houde

      dusty encyclopedias. preferably with lots of mild too.

  • Kelly

    I’m glad he was arrested. I can’t profit from pornography without signed consent forms, why the hell should he be able to?

    I don’t understand why these assholes think they’re exempt from existing laws. Just because they consider themselves amateurs instead of professionals?

    • A-nony-mous

      That’s what I wondered. I thought you needed signed consent from everyone in any sort of nude/risque photos, especially if done for-profit? Or does that only really count if the victims are willing to personally sue you to enforce that law?

    • Kelly

      The victims don’t have to sue you. Just not having the proper paperwork is a crime even if everybody is fine with you using the pictures.

    • A-nony-mous

      Thanks for the clarification :-) I was wondering if it was one of those laws that existed only if enforced by personal civil suits.

    • Michael Crichton

      IIRC, the legal argument was that he wasn’t profiting from the porn per se, he was profiting from the advertisements. Apparently this makes all the difference.

  • Jessica

    Bieber and this douche-canoe? Someone out there is using their magic monkey paw for good!

    • AugustW

      I was thinking magic lamp. So…one more wish? Chris Brown?

    • keelhaulrose

      That would be nice. We may have to settle for Tau Kappa Epsilon being told by Arizona State they’re no longer a recognized frat, and Duck Dynasty losing nearly half it’s viewers from last season.

    • Terry Teague SF

      In prison, he’ll be known as the Revenge Queen

  • keelhaulrose

    Today is a bad day for douchebag dudebros, and I couldn’t be happier.

  • Tony Smith PG/SG

    Maybe he’ll make some revengeporn with his fellow inmates

  • elle

    I do not use the word hate ever but I’m going to use it now. I sincerely hate Hunter Moore and I sincerely hope he ends up in jail (prison? I can never remember the difference). I also still wish the victims could get a lawsuit going and Hunter would lose all his money. The news of his arrest makes me so happy.

    • Rachel Sea

      Jails are city and county run, and generally house people awaiting trial, and those serving sentences under a year. Prisons are state or federally run, and house only those who have been convicted of crimes.

    • elle

      Thank you! I can read the differences 8 million times and never keep it straight

    • JLH1986

      I was CJ major in undergrad. Totally stupid but effective way to remember: Jail is shorter than Prison, thus Jail 1 year. I remember thinking that’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard. But…I remember it so I guess it worked.

    • elle

      I love mnemonic devices….and I will actually probably always remember it now. Dead serious.

    • JLH1986

      whatever works, right? lol

  • Cee

    Don’t give a fuck if they jail him for eternity

  • Véronique Houde

    it’s about fucking time

  • jendra_berri

    This makes me chortle.

  • Aimee Beff

    GOOD. I hope this fuckstronaut rots behind bars foreverrrrr.

  • Jen

    I’ve rarely been as skeeved out as when I listened to On The Media’s interview with him. All I can say is I wish the charges were more directly related to his revenge porn but, really, anything that gets him locked up is acceptable by me. Horrible, horrible person.

  • Lee

    There is a special place in hell for people like Hunter Moore and Joe Francis. I can only hope it includes a angry, attacking 50 foot woman.

  • gothicgaelicgirl

    what a complete clusterfuck! he deserves every bit of evil lady eye that glares his way!

  • SusannahJoy

    Shortly after my ex and I broke up, my friend was at my house for some reason or another and noticed the mouse on the computer screen start to move. She watched for a couple minutes as his email was brought up, and then clicked on “attachments” before realizing what was going on, and shut off the computer. Luckily he didn’t get anything, but I don’t think I’ve ever been so pissed. He was the whole “nice guy, but wrong for me” so no one really believed that he was actually doing that. Ugh.

  • joel

    Its freaking sexist to say that God is a woman. We dont know if God is a man or woman, just a being. So in other words, dont be a stereotypical know it all bitch making all women look bad.
