IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT 8CHAN IS, READ CHAIRMANCHUCK'S POST IMMEDIATELY BENEATH THIS ONE





I didn't embed the tweet because 8chan is extremely NSFW



UPDATE: Confirmed real
Seems confirmed it is real.
It is also not a rogue employee. This was approved by an entire department.

UPDATE 2: Damage control


UPDATE 3: Story is beginning to hit the press

When pressed further on if there was a reason why he kept the AMA going after the criticisms began pouring in, Brock replied, "Yes. I was fucking overwhelmed with a plethora of different emotions to be honest."

"I am not a white supremacist, nor into child pornography, nor do I think this AMA was smart in hindsight and if I could, I would undo," he concluded.

<Tweet removed since it included a harmful link, check OP for a screenshot>

If someone doesnt know what 8chan is, from Wiki:

Child pornography[edit]
The Washington Post described it as "the more-lawless, more-libertarian, more 'free' follow-up to 4chan."[7] Boards have been created to discuss topics such as child rape. While the sharing of illegal content is against site rules, The Daily Dot wrote that boards do exist to share sexualized images of minors in provocative poses, and that some users of those boards do post links to explicit child pornography hosted elsewhere.[4] When asked whether such boards were an inevitable result of free speech, Brennan responded, "Unfortunately, yes. I don’t support the content on the boards you mentioned, but it is simply the cost of free speech and being the only active site to not impose more 'laws' than those that were passed in Washington, D.C."[4]

In August 2015, 8chan was blacklisted from Google Search for containing content constituting "suspected child abuse content."[12]
Gamergate[edit]
Main article: Gamergate controversy
On September 18, 2014, the website gained prominence in the Gamergate controversy after 4chan banned discussion of Gamergate,[4][8][13] whereupon 8chan became one of several hubs of Gamergate activity.[4][8][14][15] "/gg/", 8chan's initial Gamergate-oriented board, also gained attention after being compromised by members of the internet troll group Gay Nigger Association of America, forcing Gamergate activists to migrate to "/gamergate/". This replacement quickly became the site's second most populous board.[14]

What the hell is 8chan? Only heard about 4chan. Clicked the link, I have no idea what was going on there. The layout is so confusing.
