The subject of Netflix's The Most Hated Man On The Internet still takes no blame for the revenge porn scheme which saw him sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison.

Hunter Moore, 36, owned the revenge porn website Is Anyone Up?, which was live from 2010 until 2012, when it was sold to an anti-bullying group.

The new three-part Netflix documentary, which dropped on Wednesday (July 27), tells the story of the website and how separate groups of people took Hunter down.

When he was eventually taken down, he was sentenced to two years and six months in prison after he pleaded guilty to felony charges of aggravated identity theft and aiding and abetting in the unauthorised access of a computer.

He was also handed a $2,000 (£1,651) fine and $145.70 (£121) in restitution, before serving his time and being released in May 2017.

Despite going to prison, it appears Hunter still takes no blame in the destruction his old website caused.

In April 2022, when VICE released their own documentary about him, he released a statement on Twitter.

He told his 5,200 followers: "So yesterday VICE made a little documentary and uploaded on their YouTube channel making me look evil, why not mention on the good s*** I've done, I donated thousands of dollars, did charity events, saved hundreds of animals lives.

"I mean 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?"

The statement went on: "Look guys, I did my time behind bars. Living my life peacefully now, it's been a decade about what happened.

"Some of you loved me and most of you hated me. If you want me to apologise well I wouldn't. I don't owe anyone anything."

He then added: "One last thing though, if someone breaks your heart f*** their friends."

The statement on Twitter echoed what he said during a live television interview at the time.

Is Anyone Up? allowed users to anonymously submit intimate photos of other people – often without their consent – with the posts regularly including details such as their real names, addresses and social media profiles.

However, Hunter was not convicted of anything related to the sharing of nude images, as the documentary explores how he employed a hacker to steal private photos from victims.

An FBI investigation started on Hunter in 2012 after they received evidence from the mother of a victim, with mum Charlotte Laws featuring in the documentary.

It was discovered that a man named Charles Evens, under the alias Gary Jones, was being paid by Hunter to hack into the email accounts of victims and steal their nude photos.
