4chan users create fake Nike coupon in an attempt to kill black people

In a potentially dangerous twist, the QR code on the second coupon reveals a threatening message when scanned with a QR reader: “This is a ROBBERY, Move slowly and put all the LARGE bills in the shoe box OR everyone DIES.”
In April 2018, 4Chan users concocted a similar fake Starbucks coupon for a free drink for customers “of African-American heritage.” The fake coupon emerged after a controversy in which Starbucks apologized when two black men were arrested while waiting in a Starbucks coffee shop in Philadelphia. When scanned, the QR code in the Starbuck fake coupon displayed the word “nigger.”
Fucking cowards.

Oh the same forum board that made up the White Power hand sign that's just an okay sign that everyone believed and flipped the fuck out over?

Yeah not surprised. Fuck those people.

By leaving them be you just have easy centralized places for more and more terrible people congregating and concocting worse and worse schemes to harass, injure, and get people killed. Closing down these platforms is the only way.

I'm not one for internet censorship but 4Chan is a dangerous site, it needs to be shut down.
I mean they could just shut down the specific boards causing issues. It's like calling to shut down reddit because of the_Donald. Either way they'd just find another Avenue like IRC.

I really wish moot deleted /pol/ again before he left because it's very clear that Hiroyuki doesn't give a fuck.

I'm really waiting for the other shoe to drop with hiro, eventually he's going to get tired of trying to be nice with his monetization efforts. VIP can't bring in that much.

can we toss all these radical white incel terrorist boys into the sun yet
Something something... gotta be nice to all human beings, even the shitty ones... something something... so what if they literally want to wipe us off the face of the Earth and wouldn't care one bit while they do so, we gotta talk to them and try to understand them...

I never thought I'd suggest this, but I think we're at the point where internet anonymity needs to go away. People responsible for things like this need to be tracked down and thrown in jail, which is hard to do when they hide themselves behind VPNs and proxies.

At a minimum, all the various chans need to be shut down.

IMO 4chan's what'll happen to Reddit if they don't shut down the_Donald soon. /pol/ has just infested the place, to the point where no normal adult should want to go on any of the boards. If you shut down /pol/ now, it wouldn't do shit. The infection's spread too far across the site.

I'm wondering how easy it isfor the feds to find the orginators and some of the early disseminators of the shit, what with the nature of how 4chan operates and how they might not even be in the country and that.

The only saving grace is that most of these peter out.

Imagine being the person who gets the imageboard gig. you'd need eyebleach all of the time. vile dickheads
