Now, Hunter has responded to The Most Hated Man on the Internet on Twitter, insisting that ‘60% of the documentary is bull***.’
He wrote“Many of you are asking why I didn’t tell my side of the story on the Netflix documentary, at first we all agreed about the terms and all but in the end they didn’t tell me my side of the story, basically I had to say what they wanted me to say, so I came back[ed] off.
“There are always two sides to stories, 60% of that Netflix documentary was BS, they never want you to tell or hear the truth.”
In January 2014, four years after launching the revenge porn site, the FBI arrested Moore on charges of conspiracy, unauthorized access to protected computers, and identity theft. He later pleaded guilty to charges of aiding and abetting identity theft and unauthorized access to computers.
