Hunter Moore is widely considered to be the “most hated man on the internet.” This title may be well-deserved given the horrors that he inflicted upon innocent women in the early 2010s. The Netflix docuseries of the same name premiered on July 27th, 2022, giving viewers a brief taste of the damage that he caused.
The Creation of IsAnyoneUp.com
In 2010, Hunter created the nightlife website IsAnyoneUp.com with the intention of running it as a dating/hookup platform. However, after some time, something changed. In an article posted by The Rolling Stones, he explained how the revenge site started.
The website became a platform for users to submit photos and personal information of people, without consent, as a “revenge” tactic. Anonymous submitters would post pictures of men and women they wanted to humiliate. When Hunter was contacted and asked to take down the photos, he would reply with “LOL.”
Hunter Moore’s Legal Troubles
In 2012, Hunter posted a photo of Kayla Laws, daughter of activist Charlotte Laws, which prompted her to contact the FBI. They launched an investigation that exposed Hunter’s dealings with a hacker who stole photos and personal information to use on the website.
After 16 months of collecting and posting nude photos and personal information of people worldwide, Hunter was arrested and charged with conspiracy, aggravated identity theft, and unauthorized access to a protected computer. He would eventually take a plea deal and receive a 2 1/2 year sentence in federal prison along with a $2,000 fine and a restitution fee of $145.70.
Hunter Moore’s Net Worth and Whereabouts Today
Hunter’s “career” as a self-proclaimed “professional life ruiner” earned him a monthly income between $8,000 and $13,000. Despite this, his expensive lifestyle rendered him broke multiple times. He eventually sold his website to an anti-bullying campaign for a mere $12,000, which suggests that he was desperate for both money and trying to get the FBI off his tail.
At present, it is reported that Hunter’s net worth is around $1 million. His Instagram account has been inactive since 2014, and he has been banned from Twitter and Facebook multiple times. We can only hope that his online presence remains nonexistent for the sake of decency on the internet.
