Netflix's new documentary series The Most Hated Man on the Internet will look at how Hunter Moore got away with his horrific crimes for so long.
The series set to release on the streaming site on July 27, is a deep dive into Moore's revenge porn site IsAnyoneUp.com. The harmful site allowed anyone to upload nude and sexually explicit images of a person without their consent alongside names and addresses of the subject.
More was unsurprisingly named the 'most hated man on the internet' by the Rolling Stone and even described himself as a 'professional life ruiner'. He would go as far as hiring hackers to break into emails and steal victims private photos to post online. Despite several requests from victims, he would refuse to take any photos down.
The website was active for a shocking 16 months, with Moore claiming he was protected by the same laws that protect Facebook from content posted on its site.
However, The FBI began investigating Moore in 2012 after receiving evidence from Charlotte Laws, a mother of one of the victims.
Moore sold the website to BullyVille, an anti-bullying group in 2012. Later in 2013, the group's founder James McGibney won a $250,000 defamation case where he alleged Moore called him a "pedophile" and threatened to rape his wife.
In November 2015, Moore was sentenced to two years and six months in prison after pleading guilty to aiding and abetting hacking, and aggravated identity theft. He was also given a $2,000 (£1,670) fine, and $145.70 (£120) in restitution.
He was released from prison in May 2017 with three years probation.
The convicted criminal has generally kept a low profile after his release apart from self-publishing a book in 2018 titled Is Anyone Up?!: The Story of Revenge Porn.
Moore had also originally agreed to participate in Netflix’s three-part documentary, but later pulled out of the project for unknown reasons.
