CNN Threatens To Dox The Maker Of Meme

Quote:


On Monday, KFile attempted to contact the man by email and phone but he did not respond. On Tuesday, "HanA**holeSolo" posted his apology on the subreddit /The_Donald and deleted all of his other posts.
"First of all, I would like to apologize to the members of the reddit community for getting this site and this sub embroiled in a controversy that should never have happened," he wrote. "I would also like to apologize for the posts made that were racist, bigoted, and anti-semitic. I am in no way this kind of person, I love and accept people of all walks of life and have done so for my entire life. I am not the person that the media portrays me to be in real life, I was trolling and posting things to get a reaction from the subs on reddit and never meant any of the hateful things I said in those posts. I would never support any kind of violence or actions against others simply for what they believe in, their religion, or the lifestyle they choose to have. Nor would I carry out any violence against anyone based upon that or support anyone who did."
The user further apologized for calls for violence against the press in his statement on Reddit.
"The meme was created purely as satire, it was not meant to be a call to violence against CNN or any other news affiliation," he wrote. "I had no idea anyone would take it and put sound to it and then have it put up on the President's Twitter feed. It was a prank, nothing more. What the President's feed showed was not the original post that was posted here, but loaded up somewhere else and sound added to it then sent out on Twitter. I thought it was the original post that was made and that is why I took credit for it. I have the highest respect for the journalist community and they put their lives on the line every day with the jobs that they do in reporting the news."
The apology has since been taken down by the moderators of /The_Donald subreddit.
After posting his apology, "HanA**holeSolo" called CNN's KFile and confirmed his identity. In the interview, "HanA**holeSolo" sounded nervous about his identity being revealed and asked to not be named out of fear for his personal safety and for the public embarrassment it would bring to him and his family.
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.

So now the term"biigoted" applies to someone based on what news network they like or dislike?

How do you know it was a 15 year old boy?

The CNN article only identifies him as a "private citizen" and as "the man" (implying at least 18 years old).

If your statement is true you've just done more than CNN did in revealing the identity of the poster.

Also when Trump was tweeting this at 3 in the morning, knowing it would probably create a media shit storm, do you think he gave even a second of thought to life of this person he was pushing into the middle of this circus? Did Trump care that this might be a 15 year old kid? Or was Trump more concerned about posting a giant FU to CNN?

I do not know of any. They are a smart group. So far they have been able to get other to do their bidding for them. Its a collective thing I suppose.

Where has any violence been incited in any way against the maker of the silly little video?

You do remember the subject of this thread don't you?
