No, no he isn't. But if you logged on to the PBS website, you would have seen a false story claiming that the late great rapper Tupac Shakur was alive and living in New Zealand( not Jamaica like most of these "Tupac is alive!" theorists claim.) The group that is taking responsibility for this action calls themselves "The Lulz Boat" or @Lulzsec on the popular website twitter. On the twitter account one status reads:
"Anyway, say hello to the insides of the PBS servers, folks. They best watch where they're sailing next time,"
"Watch where they're sailing next time"? Now why would these guys do something like this- which could lead to serious jail time if they ever catch the perpetrators? Well the story goes the group was unhappy about a recent Frontline program about WikiLeaks that aired on PBS.
Lets pause here for a second, I haven't seen the special but I guess it probably wasn't very positive. Look, I know you people probably worship the ground Julian Assange walks on, but cyber terrorism is never the way. "BAAAAA they insulted Wikileaks" get the fuck over it, you think Assange will bail you out? Get you a lawyer? If you want to voice your opinions, do it legally and productively send your message out. These childish pranks makes Wikileaks supporters look like assholes and they have serious repercussions in the long run. Don't give me that bullshit of "they said/did something we didn't like! We have to defend! STRIKE BACK!" These hacking and DDOS attacks are counter productive in the end and makes you no better than the worse government censoring.
Anyway, The fake Tupac article claimed the rapper was alive and residing in a small New Zealand resort .(just roll with it) It goes on to say a small town there also housed deceased rapper Biggie Smalls for years. CNN also reports that, The Lulz Boat also created a page within the PBS website that says:
"ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO LULZSEC."
"FREE BRADLEY MANNING. FUCK FRONTLINE!"
Thanks for making the movement against the inhumane treatment of an American whistle blower look like a joke. Assholes.
As of 2:00 pm the Fake Tupac story and all other hacked pages, are gone.
