Hunter Moore Makes a Living Screwing You

The hated revenge-porn profiteer says he wants to teach a lesson with his web site. How long before the 26-year-old learns one himself?

Hunter Moore Makes a Living Screwing You
Dustin Fenstermacher

Hunter Moore is trying to screw a 20-year-old woman on my lap. It's after 2 in the morning, we're squashed in a stretch limo with 11 others, stray limbs jumbled onto the vehicle's floor like a pile of sticks. The California-based revenge-porn profiteer and his rail-thin companion, a Long Island dance teacher, are reclined on our legs, their necks on my knees, as the 26-year-old alternates between making out with her and another blond girl to his right—a 21-year-old from Philly who will later call this "the wildest night of my life." Across from his best friend, Carlos Jacome, a Colombian-ginger wingman also sandwiched between two girls, Moore playfully pushes the women together so he can kiss them both at the same time. But the dancer is growing jealous, so she cradles his head possessively and coos at them both, "My baby."

Singular attention can be earned, apparently. "Can we fuck right now?" Moore whispers to her face. "C'mon. Real quick."

Hunter Moore is the unrepentant founder of Is Anyone Up, a virtual grudge slingshot of a website that gleefully publishes "revenge porn" photos—cell-phone nudes submitted by scorned exes, embittered friends, malicious hackers, and other ne'er-do-well degenerates—posted alongside each unsuspecting subject's full name, social-media profile, and city of residence. Over the past 16 months, the site has been a source of public humiliation for pop-punk bassists, a Maple Leafs forward, an Ultimate Frisbee champ, an American Idol finalist, and the founder of Dream Water. ("Obviously didn't make Smart Water," Moore zinged.) Should you mistake these targets for adhering to a code of heartbroken vigilantism or entitlement schadenfreude, let it be known that the only guides Moore follows are the law and Mark Zuckerberg's principle that the greatest online power is the people you know. "At the end of the day, people just want to see their friends fucking naked," he offers. Now he posts nude schoolteachers, young mothers, American military members, little people, and, recently, a disabled woman in a wheelchair. It's worth noting Moore often advertises with the tagline "Pure Evil."

Naturally, Moore has spawned a legion of enemies. After posting images of the daughter of a major GOP campaign donor, strangers tried to climb over his home fence. Last spring, Bamboozle organizers threatened to arrest him if he stepped on festival grounds. In July, a San Francisco–area woman stabbed the Sacramento native in the shoulder with a pen, a wound that required surgery and left a caterpillar-size scar. Facebook instituted a universal ban on the site; Moore enjoys telling everyone that he responded with a picture of his dick. Anonymous has targeted his site, as have other savvy hackers; he now pays a security firm five grand a month to ward them off. And there is a steady stream of death threats, which has Moore mulling over moving back to New York, where he has lived in two separate spells. He could really use a doorman. "I'm scared I'm going to get fucking murdered in my sleep if someone finds out where I live."

Although Moore isn't giving out his home address or cell-phone number, which he has changed every month this year, the self-employed entrepreneur isn't hiding. The opposite, actually: Moore travels across the country DJ'ing clubs, widely promoting his personal appearances. This is partly because he insists he's a straw man. "People want to point the finger at me, but I didn't fucking raid your house and take your phone," he says. "I don't see how I'm supposed to be sorry." But more so, it's because he's constantly playing chicken. Threaten a lawsuit, and Moore will post your threat. Cry about the emotional distress he has abetted, and he will belittle your concern. "After a couple of days, literally, nobody gives a fuck," he says. "We've all masturbated to you or laughed at you, and it's done. It can't get any worse." Confront him for posting your nudes on Anderson Cooper's show, and he will just repost your boobs the following day with the headline, "The Girl Who Confronted Me on the Anderson Cooper Show."

This behavior is classic trolling, which has drawn him an online army of adoring defenders. Moore has 35,000 Twitter followers; his site has more than 91,000. One woman named her child after him. Three things fangirls have tweeted at him in the past week: "If you had aids, id still fuck you just to say i have aids and that i got aids from you"; "One day I'm going to have Hunter Moore tattooed on my stomach with an arrow pointing down that says 'God Was Here'"; "I wonder how many girls have tried to steal @Huntermoore used condoms."

"We all want to be him," insisted Charlie Rittenhouse, a 25-year-old fanboy acquaintance from Islip, Long Island, minutes before we all climbed into the limo hailed outside Moore's Webster Hall birthday party. "We all fucking do."

Internet, this is what you've created.

Is Anyone Up is a NSFW blog devoted to capitalizing on the vindictive potential of smartphone technology. Five days a week, the 16-month-old site updates with 20 to 30 individual posts of nude 18- to 30-year-olds who, however foolishly, never intended their sexting images for public consumption. Most of these amateur self-portraits are posed with shower curtains or linen-cluttered backdrops. Many include recognizable faces. All appear beside screenshots of their Facebook or Twitter accounts, with their full names, cities, and states blasted in Google-searchable headlines. Every naked body is actively subject to ridicule, both by commenters and Moore, who chooses animated-GIF "reaction shots" to accompany each nude. For example, a dark-haired vamp is rewarded with Jersey Shore's Vinny and Pauly D eyeing each other over milkshakes on a pixelated loop; a small male endowment incurs Jerry Lewis silently guffawing again and again.

Wow, I have never seen such a horrible case of small dick syndrome. Not sure why the ugly mofo has not done the world a favour and hung himself. And yup, that is one hell of an ugly nose.
 If he accidentally falls off a cliff I know nothing, just sayin.

This article has NOTHING TO DO WITH JEWISH NEPOTISM. HE JUST HAPPENS TO BE A JEW BEING PROMOTED BY OTHER JEWS. IT"S JUST A COINCIDENCE.

This guy is very likely a Mossad operative. He hides behind his jew-promoted fake "bad boy" image. I would keep a close eye on him as he is probably involved in the next israeli false-flag attack in the US, a la the jewish "art students" who helped set up 9-11.

I am torn between wishing HIV upon this man and knowing that it won't stop him from spreading it to others. He really should be put down. And I'm a doctor. It's a public health need.

Its remarkable none of his victims or relatives of his victims have put two in his chest. What an immoral scumbag.

The ironic thing about this hump in the road douche is that he's completely unoriginal and lacking in a any degree of creativity. Acrewig people over and making money? Wow, he thought that up all by himself? NOT. His fears of getting whacked one day are probably well founded as he will screw over the wrong person and his inevitable fate will come to fruition. l wonder who will make money of that episode?

Just another loser who seeks his 15 minutes and got it along with 10 pages of wasted ink from the Village Voice. Way to go Village Voice! He will be forgotten by the time most hit refresh on their comps

Why would any woman want to let this sleaze anywhere near her? He comes off like he's proud to be a walking STD factory. His mother must be so proud. Jeez...

I find it really just sad above all things that people are looking up to the near exact definition of a sociopath, as a role model, he complains people need to "toughen up" when really he made a career off putting other people down and is so afraid of ever letting ANY woman in to see the little bit of good he may or may not have, that he has to put on this pathetic "im so deseperate for attention" attitude by flashing his cash and saying "oh guess what i may very well end up having someone kill themselves over my actions" but hey look at how many woman ive slept with. Things like money and meaningless sex with strangers go away and all that will be left is himself, and that is something i think he doesnt ever want to have to face. I honestly just dont think I personally could reach my thirtys and look back and see that i was responsible for destroying young girls lives and chances of ever really having a successfull CAREER ( sure you could be famous on his site with your friends for being naked but just wait till your employer does a backround check on you or even when you grow up and your kids decide to google your name, ya pictures last a lifetime) destruction ive caused in the world, no matter what amount of money i would make.

Then again what i think the real issues is deep down isnt just this mans lack of sympathy for ANYONE besides himself, but the fact that people just act out of spite and revenge not thinking "hey while im upset now, doing this could really hurt this person permentantly"

Geez are we that desperate for attention and so heartless that we have come to this, if so i honestly fear for my nieces who are 12 now as to what the hell would be coming next after Hunter moore has had his turn at "success"

If I saw him being beaten to a pulp on the street I would not call 911 but surely take a picture with my phone and post it for his fans

I want to hit him. Hard. Someone needs to sue the fuck out of him. He is a college kid buying alcohol for middle school aged children. He is the person who let's someone die because he's too lazy to call 911. Someone please post how shitty he is in bed and how small his dick is.

As much of a loser-douche as this guy may be, he has a point. Ladies need to stop doing stupid things like sexting and taking nude shots. If you are going to play the game, you have accept that you may lose.

Even though it has negative consequences, I agree with freedom of speech and this type of thing should be legal just as http://www.dirtyphonebook.com and other similar sites are legal. That being said, the way that Hunter Moore carries himself seems a bit off-putting and I think he will end up in trouble. I don't know if I'd define it as "revenge porn" though. It seems more related to the way that society has gravitated towards reality TV.

well written mate. Life is unfair, and yes, he may suck for his action but there are more horrible people than him. The hypocrisy to the highest level of anyone visiting his site and pretend they did not like is a complete idiot. His site may not live long, since internet is not always free in the United States but for the meantime let's just enjoy the misery of others.

The repugnant thing about this guy is that he trades in slut shaming. It's unfortunate that people are naive about the consequences of sharing nude photos of themselves, but that doesn't mean that they deserve to be humiliated for that action. At its core, Is Anyone Up operates on the assumption that if you're a sexual being, you should be shamed and "outed" for it. This is sex negativity of the highest order and speaks to both Hunter Moore's and our culture's sexual hang-ups.

@Yummyfur23 there is no shame in nudity, it's because our fucked up society puts shame on something so natural that this shit happens. If ppl would stop being embarrassed by something so natural this man's case of small dick syndrome might not have enabled him to garner such fame.
