Gawker Unmasked the Creepiest Reddit User
Gawker journalist, Adrian Chen, has managed to reveale the man behind “violantacrez” (pronounced Violent-Acres), the volunteer moderator on social news website, Reddit. Violentacrez is well known among Reddit users as the creepiest Reddit users that you could ever think of!
The name of the mysterious moderator is Michael Brutsch, he is 49 years old, comes from Texas and works as a programmer. For years, Michael Brutsh has been posting offensive content, including pictures of underage girls or postings about incest. He was the creator of the Jailbait, a section on Reddit dedicated to sexualized images of underage girls. Other Reddit sections that Brutsch has created or moderated are: Chokeabitch, Niggerjailbait, Rapebait, Hitler, Jewmerica, Mosogyny, and Incest.
Michael Brutsh a.k.a Violentacrez
Some of you might ask yourself, how did he get away with it? Chen wrote: “Violentacrez has historically had a close relationship with Reddit's staff, a fact far less well-known than his controversial behavior. Violentacrez was a troll, but he was a well-connected troll. He told me he was close with a number of early Reddit employees—many of whom have now moved on—chatting with them on IRC or sometimes even on the phone. A few years ago, while Jailbait was still going strong, Reddit's administrators gave him a special one-of-a-kind "pimp hat" badge to honor his contributions to the site, which he proudly displayed on his profile. “ Reddit management even trusted him to remove illegal content from the site, such as child pornography.
