Hunter Moore doesn’t ‘owe anyone anything’ for IsAnyoneUp.com
“So yesterday Vice made a lil’ documentary and uploaded on their YouTube channel making me look evil,” he said. “Why not mention on the good s*** I’ve done. I donated thousands of dollars, did charity events, saved hundreds of animals [lives]. I just created a platform and the one who posted on my site was your loved one back then, so why blame me and not your partner who you trusted?” While Moore made many posts on IsAnyoneUp.com, he claims most of the images were “crowd-sourced.”
Moore’s post concluded: “Look guys, I did my time behind bars. Living my life peacefully now, it’s been a decade … some of you love me and most of you hate me. If you want me to apologize well I wouldn’t,” Moore said. “I don’t owe anyone anything.”
