Anonymous Account Threatens ‘Fate Worse Than Sony’ For MTV

By Steph Bazzle | Small Business

One Anonymous Twitter account is threatening MTV with a ‘fate worse than Sony’ if they don’t comply with demands to apologize and remove an article about the hackers and Iggy Azalea. MTV has already edited the article, but this Anon account says that’s not enough.

Other Anonymous accounts have already called this one (YourAnonMessage, it’s named) out for actions that are ‘not of our hive.’ Specifically, when YourAnonMessage posted Friday and Saturday about Iggy Azalea’s sex tape, other Anons said that the actions weren’t appropriate, and pointed out previous errors by YourAnonMessage.

MTV did edit the article in question, adding this line and changing the headline:

Update: Anonymous has since tweeted that they won’t be releasing “anything.” The body of the story and the headline have been updated to reflect this.

It’s not enough, though, according to this Anonymous account. They’re calling on MTV to remove the article entirely, and issue an apology. They have, though, retracted statements to Iggy Azalea.

Still, the Anonymous account made it clear that they’re only diverting their attention to MTV, and, if the entertainment giant doesn’t remove the article, they’ll suffer ‘a fate worse than Sony.’

As of late Sunday morning, MTV had not complied with the demand to remove the article, and the Anon account gave another warning.

The Twitter account linked in that tweet by the way, the person Anonymous is telling MTV to blame, is the author of the article in question.

Other Anonymous accounts continue to disavow the actions of YourAnonMessage, saying that they don’t approve, and that, as a collective, sometimes members do things that do not reflect the sentiments of the whole. As for ‘a fate worse than Sony,’ MTV has not yet reported any site problems, and as of early Sunday afternoon, is still up and functioning.
