This article will discuss the Netflix documentary series The Most Hated Man on the Internet, which will include details of the premise, release date, and trailer.
Revenge p**n has been a fierce subject in recent years, mostly because it’s an increasing form of domestic abuse whereby an abuser will threaten or blackmail to release intimate sexual of a person, or even worse, make that imagery public to embarrass them. This form of abuse ruins lives, bringing the victim into a whirlwind of mental turmoil and social anguish. Netflix is bringing an interesting subject matter to the conversation. So, here’s everything we know about the documentary series The Most Hated Man on the Internet.
Netflix documentary series The Most Hated Man on the Internet premise
Courtesy of Netflix, The Most Hated Man on the Internet tells the story of one mother’s mission against the self-styled ‘King of Revenge P**n’ after nude photos of her daughter are posted online.
Hunter Moore was a self-proclaimed “professional life ruiner” who found fame in the early 2010s by founding IsAnyoneUp.com, a notorious revenge p**n hub. The site posted explicit photos of women and men, often without their permission and with devastating results. He built a cult following of those who hung on his every raunchy move. Featuring poignant, exclusive interviews with multiple women and men who fought to have their images taken down, law enforcement agents who worked the case, and the crusaders who fought to take Moore down, this three-part series documents his comeuppance at the hands of the only force more fearsome than an army of internet trolls: a mother protecting her daughter. The series is executive produced by Alex Marengo (Bad Sport, Killer Ratings) and directed by Rob Miller.
Our opinion on the premise
This will draw a lot of attention and spur many conversations on social media. Like The Tinder Swindler, there’s intrigue on why this man operated in the way he did. Why did he do what he did? What did the victims go through? What were the ramifications of Hunter Moore’s actions? Hopefully, the docuseries will answer a lot of questions.
The Most Hated Man on the Internet release date
The docuseries will be released on Netflix on July 27, 2022. It will consist of 3 x 60-minute episodes.
Is there a trailer?
Our opinion of the trailer:
The approach for this documentary series is a good move by the creators, who have brought The Tindler Swindler and Don’t F**k with Cats. While there’s a focus on the “King of Revenge P**n,” it also strongly delves into the victims. At least that’s what the trailer suggests. Let’s hope it’s a victim-driven story. We don’t want Howard to be idolized by his villainous nature.
