WBragging about his “gift for pushing buttons” Michael Brutsch became one of the biggest internet trolls on the internet, moderating and creating many forums on the website Reddit, including Jailbait, which includes sexual or suggestive images of minors.
After hiding behind the name “violentacrez,” his identity was exposed last week.
He spoke exclusively to Drew Griffin admitting that he “made mistakes. I understand that Reddit encouraged and enabled this behavior and I shouldn’t have been a part of it.” He told Griffin the biggest thrill he got was “those meaningless internet points”
