A hacker who is a white supremacist, has claimed to have hacked into the email and social networking accounts of Trayvon Martin and posted Martin’s private messages for all the public to see on the internet.


“I realize that some of this information might be to [sic] extreme to believe,” the hacker, named Klanklannon wrote. “That’s why I offer you evidence. Here are my sources.”

There was a slide posted on the message board that has the title of “Trayvon Martin Used Marijuana Habitually.” The slide shows a discussion between Martin and one of his friends about getting high. There was another slide posted on the site that claimed Martin was a drug dealer. It showed a picture of Martin standing “aggressively with a large amount of cash in his hand.”

Klankannon, the hacker, said that the passwords on Martin’s accounts were also changed to “niggerniggernigger” and “coontrayvonnigger.”

A political reporter, Dave Weigel, said that the media is trying to prevent a picture of Martin, with his middle finger extended, from hitting the mainstream. Weigel also said that the picture misappropriated Martin and said it was.

“part of a new cottage industry of ‘truth about Trayvon’ content, calibrated to convince people that they really shouldn’t worry about the implications of this killing.”

“Why, the kid wasn’t even a saint!” Weigel said. “He might have been shot after brawling with the man who creeply [sic] followed him around the gated community?”

Adrian Chen, from Gawker, said that all of the attempts by people to smear the name of Martin have not succeeded “because the picture they paint is of a normal high school junior preparing for college.”

The technological life of Martin has made the news in the past, ever since his killing, as this is not the first time it has happened. Martin’s Twitter account, which has since been deleted, had messages posted online by the Daily Caller. The executive editor of the Caller, David Martosko, said that he posted the tweets because his readers wanted to know more about Martin’s life, the shooting that occurred, and the two people involved in the incident.

“These were not protected tweets,” Martosko said. “While he was alive, these were not outside of the public sphere in any shape or form.”

The tweets were published by the Caller ‘without value judgment,’ according to Martosko. He also said that he would publish tweets from an account for Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, if he had one.
