Anonymous Hackers Expose ‘Rape Apologists’

In a recent post at, members of Anonymous listed contact information for 19 people who had expressed support for the boys accused of raping Canadian teenager Rehtaeh Parsons prior to her recent suicide.

The post was announced via Anonymous’ “ReportAPedophile” Twitter feed, in a tweet stating, “Plz RT #OpJustice4Rehtaeh Rape Apologists and Slutshaming in Cole Harbour

“We seek to illustrate that the bullying of Rehtaeh in her immediate community continues on, even after her death,” the hackers write. “We are highlighting the actions, both off and online, of 19 individuals in Rehtaeh’s broader community.”

The statement includes a series of quotes from a Facebook page set up in support of the boys who had allegedly raped Parsons prior to her suicide, along with photos from a “counter protest” held in support of the boys on April 14.

It then identifies 19 “rape apologists” from the Facebook page, listing their names, ages, locations and phone numbers, along with the names of their parents and siblings, as well as extensive school/college/work contact information.

The statement ends with contact information for Parsons’ school, Cole Harbour District High School, and a series of images of signs posted in support of the alleged rapists.

Still, Anonymous noted early in the post that all images had been “carefully edited to conceal the names of the alleged rapists.”
