CNN is apparently now threatening private citizens.
The Reddit user who initially made the Trump/WWE-themed meme, featuring President Trump body slamming CNN, was threatened by the network after they uncovered his identity.
CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski bragged on Twitter about having discovered the identity of the creator of the meme, and seemed to enjoy the “power” his elite privilege brought him.
Now, many are saying that the Reddit user is actually a 15-year-old kid, which looks even worse for CNN.

This act caused uproar among parties on the internet, who quickly pointed out that CNN is essentially blackmailing the man, who has since issued an apology and removed his “offensive” materials.

The last Reddit user who posted things the establishment didn’t like and got doxxed was Seth Rich #CNNBlackmail

This comes on the heels of CNN being exposed as fake news via Project Veritas, and it seems that the network itself is intent on finishing the work that Veritas founder James O’Keefe started.
