Pro-rape and controversy child Roosh blames Hacktivists for hacking his family’s address and spreading hoax news

The controversial ‘neo-masculinist” Roosh has claimed to have become the victim of online hacktivism as he was targeted by an Anonymous-linked hacker group.

It was announced on Thursday that Roosh V, real name Daryush Valizadeh has called off Public meetings of his group Return of Kings because he fears for his followers’ safety now after the alleged hacking.

The announcement was made after the drastic hue and cry of people demanding him to be banned from the U.K, meetings were supposed to be held at US and Canada were debarred specifically in Canada, a female boxing group threatened them with dire consequences if the meetings took place.

Roosh Valizadeh told his 20,000 social media followers that it is all part of a hacking scam by Anonymous-associated hackers. He also shared a screenshot, which is apparently a post from the hackers. Later on, Roosh deleted his tweet but we were able to grab a screenshot from Google cache

Anonymous supporters apparently applauded this information, increasing the popularity of the famous socially active, leaderless group.

Valizadeh faced the aftermath for publishing a loathsome blog post last year titled “ How to stop rape,” which basically states that rape must be legalized if done on private property. He allegedly received death threats for his preposterous article.

He wrote in that article that:

“Rape should be deemed legal if done on private property [as then] a girl would absolutely not enter a private room with a man she doesn’t know or trust unless she is absolutely sure she is ready to sleep with him.”

He also suggested:

“Consent is now achieved when she passes underneath the room’s door frame because she knows that the man can legally do anything he wants to her when it comes to sex.”

Valizadeh later denied the information altogether calling it a satire and blamed the people for taking it so seriously. He even added this disclaimer to his official blog:

“The following article was published as a satirical thought experiment. Its conclusion is not to be taken literally.”

The news was firstly made public by the Daily Mail, which reported that Valizadeh contacted the police and called them to visit him at his home. He shares his Maryland home with his mother where he resides at the basement nowadays after allegedly receiving death threats.

The Daily Mail was also informed by Valizadeh on Thursday that this disclaimer has been added yesterday, which is exactly a year after the date of publishing that controversial blog post.

In a Q&A session that was published online, he maintained that:

“Legalising rape is a notion so insanely absurd I never imagined that people would take it 100 per cent seriously.”

In a Tweet, he re-stated his thoughts about legalizing rape:

The 36-year-old self-proclaimed “pick-up artist” has authored various books and blog posts voicing his misogynistic views advising men on how to seduce women into sleeping with them. On the website the Return of the King, he has posted blogs titled “5 Reasons to date a girl with an eating disorder” and “Men should start recording sex with a hidden camera”.

Facebook blocks Anonymous from posting Roosh’s personal information:

The data was first posted by famous We are Anonymous page on Facebook and got an unbelievable amount of attention. However, in an exclusive conversation with one of the page’s admin claimed that Facebook has removed the data and blocked his profile for 30 days.

The admin has also shared an exclusive screenshot showing the post reach:
