Brad Pitt To Produce Movie About Steubenville & Hacktivist Group Anonymous

brad pitt anonymous
  • Brad Pitt and his producing team have bought the rights to the Rolling Stone article, “Anonymous Vs. Steubenville,” about the online hacktivist group who brought nationwide attention to the sexual assault of a teen girl by members of the Steubenville High School football team. The article focuses on Deric Locstutter, one of the hacktivists within Anonymous, and how he faced jail time for exposing the coverup of the assault, rather than the issues directly pertinent to rape culture. I’m happy to hear the story won’t disappear into history, but I’ll hold off judgment until I see how it’s handled. [Daily Dot]

Steubenville Hacker Could Do More Prison Time Than The Rapists

  • Deric Lostutter, the Anonymous hacker who exposed the Steubenville rape case — in which players on the high school football team sexually assaulted a drunk girl at a party and were protected by their community — is facing hacking-related charges from the FBI, which carry up to 10 years in prison. Ten years, by the way, is a lot longer than either of the convicted rapists will spend behind bars. Lostutter said he is being made an example of by the FBI. [Think Progress]
  • Ohio’s state Senate advanced a budget bill that strips state funding for Planned Parenthood clinics, which provide reproductive health care to low-income women, including cancer screenings and HIV testing. Instead the state would grant funding to so-called “crisis pregnancy centers,” which have been known to lie to women about reproductive health while discouraging them away from abortions. The bill now heads to the Ohio state House. [Raw Story] Keep reading »

Anonymous Hacks (Spoofs?) The Westboro Baptist Church’s Facebook Page

Internet hacktivist group Anonymous strikes again! Following the Westboro Baptist Church’s announcement that they would protest the funerals of those who died in Monday’s Boston Marathon attack, Anonymous seized control of the hate group’s Facebook page and made themselves comfortable. Okay, so it’s kind of unclear whether this was ever WBC’s actual Facebook page, or if Anonymous has created a spoof space. Some of the posts go back as far as four months, though it’s possible they were posted this week and backdated. ANYWAY, point being, if you search for Westboro Baptist Church on Facebook, Anonymous’s spoof pages is what you find. The “About” section reads:

THE OFFICIAL WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH FACEBOOK PAGE YA’LL
Church Leaders; Marilyn Manson, Anonymous, and Captain Crunch.
@Wbaptists and @WbcTruth (Twitter) YouTube.com/RealWestboroBaptists

Anonymous has also posted dozens of their own photos and links. See a sample of some of the photos after the jump. And check out the Anonymous-hacked FB page while you still can, before it turns back into its usual cesspool of hatred. Keep reading »
