YouTube Restores Kony 2012 Video and Blocked Anonymous Account


www.ibtimes.co.uk

YouTube has backed down over the Anonymous hacker collective's threat to "unleash hell" against it for blocking TheAnonMessage account before a 72-hour deadline expired.

It also restored a controversial video criticising the Kony 2012 campaign, which went viral last month.

"BREAKING: GREAT NEWS! @YouTube has unlocked my account and unblocked the censored video in response to yesterday's threat!" the account holder of TheAnonMessage wrote on Twitter.

UPDATE! Earlier this afternoon, YouTube decided to heed the warning and unlock TheAnonMessage's account. No Censorship. Knowledge is Free. We are Anonymous.



Something is brewing and its no government here. I would caution the CEO's of YT and heed the warning.

On March 25, Anonymous hacktivists accused YouTube of censorship after TheAnonMessage account was blocked. The hackers warned YouTube executives that if the account will not be unlocked in 72 hours, they will unleash hell upon them. YouTube complied.

“Your block to TheAnonMessage's account has directly violated first amendment rights of the constitution of the United States. This violation stands against everything our collective believes in,” Anonymous wrote.

“By speaking out against the viral Kony twenty twelve video, Youtube has decided to block a voice of truth.”

It was uncertain what Anonymous had in store for the company’s C-level management, but it sounded pretty bad.

“However, we will take a course of action that will have YouTube executives awake at night and afraid for their sanity. No censorship. Knowledge is free,” the video statement concludes.

The hackers also highlighted the fact that the message was not directed to the YouTube website, since it’s considered to be a “medium of communication and knowledge that has fallen in the wrong hands.”

A few hours ago, long before the deadline ended, YouTube restored the account, much to the satisfaction of the Anonymous community.


Do not feel bad, you took the right path and although everyone was briefed at the highest level noone could guarantee yt of a 100% safe streaming ride. Digital citizens have spoken and spoken softly without creating a panic.

KONY island: Inside the weird world of Jason Russell

.... Russell, the co-founder of controversial charity Invisible Children, was taken to a psychiatric ward in San Diego, California, on Thursday after suffering a meltdown in public. He is to be released later today.

TMZ released video footage of Russell hitting the pavement with his fists, swearing to himself and shouting.

It was claimed that Russell was also caught masturbating in the street. His wife, Danica, blamed the breakdown on the criticism KONY 2012 has attracted.

I have but one question, if these anonymous hackers are truly just a loose band of people, how in the name of god do they acquire such high priced video productions??? The Intro alone is way too professional to just be some hobbyist screwing around in a cg program with After Effects post?

This will answer most of your questions and perhaps raise new ones.

sOooOoOooo.... "anonymous" goes from exposing a child pornography ring on the "inner-net" to posting porn on a site that, pretty much, only chirldren visit.... sound like some mixed messages to me. I mean come on, really? a kids YT site? Why not martha stewarts page where all the prudes go, and hell while your at it paste martha's face on all the porn models.... or better yet go to the GOP YT and paste romney's/santorum's face over the face of the F'y and an american flag over the face of the F'd.... at least there would actually be a message involved.

I guess in anon's case there is a fine line between being a HERO (A person who is admired for courage or noble qualities) and being a SOCIOPATH (A person with a personality disorder manifesting itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a lack of conscience).

Does anyone else find this funny?


And trying to say youtube is violating 1st amendment rights really just highlights their ignorance of their rights.

So Anonymous threw a tantrum and YouTube humored it.

Big deal. Let's see Anonymous shatter the Pentagon and CIA databases into thousands of pieces, and walk away with the government files in flames.

That's what I want to see. Real damage. Stuff getting #ed up. Let's get real, Anonymous.

Once you click "agree" to post a video and sign up in youtube you abide by YOUTUBE rules. Nothing to do with First Amendment.

Anonymous had there 15 minutes of fame, now they are just trying to scrape another 15.

Oh man, I'm starting to get tired of this # flooding the front page. I'm really disappointed with the direction they have taken. I mean, I don't necessarily support vigilante justice, but it was a nice change of pace to have people striving to fight the good fight, sort of like a real life modern super hero.. How ever as of late it's taken a turn for hollywood butchery and a case of lost marbles. They make outrageous claims and seem to be looking to go after any one and anything leaving behind the good fight. Now they are just another terrorist for the US to use as a reason for destroying internet privacy.

Where exactly did they go in the wrong direction? Was it when they were posting child porn on 4 chan? When they posted porn on youtube? When they decided to eradicate the church of Scientology (and failed)? When they vowed to bring the FBI to their knees (and failed)? When they were going to take out sony (and failed) When they formed swastikas in habbo hotel? Or the 10 other things they said they were going to do this week?
When exactly were they in the "right" direction?

They are all just a bunch of script kiddies anyways. Fools think they are "fighting for the people" but all they are doing is proving the need for stricter internet policing. Way to go anonymous, idiots.

I pity those here on ATS that think that they [anonymous] are fighting for the people, or even important.

Why wont YouTube Block all the, radical Nationalists YouTube Users? or the rebel users?
that to me seems a little a double standard.
