Recently, the UFC's website was hacked in response to their endorsement of the unpopular proposed legislation. Now, after Dana White's reaction to the hacking, he's the new target.
The response: the hacker posted a tweet listing White's social security number, a list of his home addresses, vehicle identification numbers and his personal phone number.
Here's more from White, about SOPA:
According to @joshthgod on Twitter (whose account has since been deleted), White is now the target of the attacks, not the UFC as a whole.
This is a huge mistake on the part of, well, everyone.
SOPA is the worst piece of legislation since __________ (fill in your least favorite bill or law here), and while I understand the reasoning behind the UFC's support, SOPA would cause more harm than good in the long run. It's extremely widely criticized, and fans definitely don't appreciate their favorite MMA promotion supporting it.
At the same time, by publicly attacking the UFC and White, the hacker is showing why perhaps the government DOES need to crack down on the internet. So maybe this isn't the best way to go about it.
The more White voices his criticism of this and other hackers, the worse it's going to get. Can we just see some fights, please? Preferably, for free, of course.
