If CNN doesn’t go under now, what’s it going to take? These imbeciles are allegedly guilty of extortion, bullying a 15 year old boy who enjoyed making memes that were slightly politically incorrect into apologizing and getting off the Internet.
Last night, as the story broke, I posted this story on how the Redditor who created the Trump wrestling meme apologized.
Overnight (it’s 6:48 A.M. as I’m writing), the Twitter hashtag #CNNBlackmail exploded with thousands of Tweets condemning CNN for forcing the Redditor to apologize under threat of having his real identity revealed.
It turns out that CNN was blackmailing a 15 year old kid.
Julian Assange and a host of Twitter users have made it clear that the mission now is to utterly and totally destroy CNN.
Normally, President Trump would be Tweeting up a storm over this good news, but one of his latest Tweets says he’s getting ready to head for Poland and won’t be back until Saturday.
The fake-news fascists at CNN are in big trouble now. Yuuuuge.
The hashtag “CNN Blackmail” is the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter after CNN bragged about threatening to dox a 15-year-old child for creating the comical WWE meme that showed President Trump body-slamming a CNN logo.
CNN boasted that it had tracked down and basically bullied a Reddit user called HanAssholeSolo after he took credit for the video online. The Redditer is a 15-year-old boy, according to multiple Twitter users.
CNN claimed HanAssholeSolo apologized to them for creating the jokey WWE meme and deleted all his posts that mocked the humorless cable news network.
CNN then bragged about suppressing the teen’s Constitutionally-guaranteed free speech rights on the Fourth of July by threatening to dox him to the world:
CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again.
In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same. CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.
CNN threw a major hissy-fit after President Trump tweeted this meme from 2007 that was modified to show him body-slamming a CORPORATE LOGO OF CNN.
While the appropriateness of President Trump’s tweet was hotly debated by both liberals and conservatives, CNN’s bullying of a teenager was widely condemned by all sides.
German Lopez, a reporter for liberal website Vox, was absolutely disgusted and called CNN’s cyberbullying unethical. “This is basically ‘don’t post stuff we don’t like or we’ll dox you.’ Extremely unethical,” Lopez tweeted.
Conservative author Ben Shapiro — an attorney who graduated from Harvard Law school — agreed.
“That’s essentially blackmail. That’s CNN stating that it will out the guy if he dares to defy their political perspective or offends them sufficiently,” Shapiro wrote. “The whole story is frightening, and obviously an attempt to both nail Trump and discourage people from smacking CNN.”
Republican Congressman Scott Taylor accused CNN of extortion. “Pretty sure a line is crossed here,” he wrote on Twitter.
The backlash against CNN was volcanic in its condemnation of a multi-billion-dollar news network threatening and scaring a 15-year-old child because they want him to stop making comical memes that hurt their wittle feelings.
The viral hashtag “CNN Blackmail” has been trending overnight on Twitter as users expressed their outrage that a so-called journalistic outfit threatened a child’s free-speech rights on the birthday of the United States of America.
