A group of right-wing hackers are claiming that they have obtained EXPLICIT pics from the iPhone of student/activist Emma Gonzalez - the outspoken leader of the Parkland protest.
According to the hackers on the website 4chan - they infiltrated her phone last week. But they feel justified that they could FREELY share images of the teen online. That's because the hackers believe that Emma is 18 years old. It's not clear that she was 18 in the images, however.
That's not really how the law works.
In any case, the hacking did not distract the young activist from stealing the limelight at yesterday's March for Our Lives rally in Washington over the weekend. Emma listed the names of the 17 students and staff who were gunned down at her high school in Parkland, Florida. She then fell silent.
“Since the time that I came out here, it has been 6 minutes and 20 seconds," she said “The shooter has ceased shooting, and will soon abandon his rifle, blend in with the students as they escape, and walk free for an hour before arrest. Fight for your lives before it’s someone else’s job.”
We think it's low of the hackers to try and discredit a young woman fighting to save the lives of American children. But, what do we expect from the far-right? Not too much.
