13 year old Rebecca Black, star of the new internet music video “Friday”, is facing down the barrel of an Internet shotgun today as hackers from the Internet site “4chan” have planned an all out attack against Black for what the hackers are are claiming to be “the worst music video ever made.”
Operation Black Friday has sprung out from the “/b/” section of the 4chan site, where already Rebecca Black has become an over night target, with plans today by hackers to “respond” to her appearance on Good Morning America.
Images from Rebecca Black’s school calendar have been posted on the 4chan site, as well as at least half a dozen possible home addresses. All this is in an attempt by the hackers to give as much information out about her to allow a full scale attack on Black and her family. One clear indicator of the type of attacks being planned comes from images on the 4chan website, which has been reported in a post by the Gawker website.
here are some simple orders. 12pm est, start calling the school with all of the numbers and tardy bullshit, fax as many nudes of ANYTHING (girl blowing horse for example) and put rebecca’s name on it. at 1pm est DDoS Ark Music Factory. at 3pm est, start requesting her (sorry excuse for) music on the radio “[sic]”
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Rebecca Black spoke about how the negative attention has impacted her.
Those hurtful comments really shocked me,” Black said yesterday in her first interview since the song came to dominate a certain quadrant of popular culture and crack the iTunes Top 100 singles chart this week, besting the likes of Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber. “At times, it feels like I’m being cyberbullied.
Topping the iTunes singles chart and surpassing Justin Beiber also brought about a backlash from Bieber fans who were quick to threaten her that she would “not make it to Friday.”
The good news for Rebecca Black is that the founder of the 4chan website, known only as “Moot”, has stepped in and shut down the raid as best he can. Turns out not everyone is comfortable picking on a 13 year old girl these days.
