We always knew that if Tupac was still alive, he'd end up in New Zealand. Ha!
Okay, so Tupac's not ACTUALLY alive, but some hackers cracked PBS' website yesterday morning and posted a fake story about the late rapper on the PBS NewsHour section of the site.
Apparently, the group of hackers called LulzSec were upset about a recent Frontline program about WikiLeaks, and put up the Tupac story to get back at PBS.
Here's what Frontline executive producer David Fanning had to say about the program in question:
"From our point of view, we just see it as a disappointing and irresponsible act, especially since we have been very open to publishing criticism of the film…and the film included other points of view. This kind of action is irresponsible and chilling."
Guess these hackers have REALLY strong feelings about WikiLeaks!
Do U think a fake Tupac story was a good way for this hacker group to get back at PBS for their Frontline program???
