New Anti-Gay Posts from Joy Reid's Blog Discovered;
Joy Reid Claims These Posts Were "Fabricated"

#Hacked. Toaster still loyal at least.

While the amateur sleuth provided Mediaite with legitimate links to all of the posts they tweeted screenshots of, neither the actual defunct site nor its archived pages are currently accessible, as their Wayback Machine links mysteriously disappeared in December after Mediaite's initial story on Reidís homophobic comments about Florida Congressman Charlie Crist was published. The Wayback Machine did not respond to an inquiry regarding the removal of Reid's blog.

Reidís statement to Mediaite claims that these allegedly hacked posts do "not represent the original entries" on her site...

In December I learned that an unknown, external party accessed and manipulated material from my now-defunct blog, The Reid Report, to include offensive and hateful references that are fabricated and run counter to my personal beliefs and ideology.

I began working with a cyber-security expert who first identified the unauthorized activity, and we notified federal law enforcement officials of the breach. The manipulated material seems to be part of an effort to taint my character with false information by distorting a blog that ended a decade ago.

Now that the site has been compromised I can state unequivocally that it does not represent the original entries. I hope that whoever corrupted the site recognizes the pain they have caused, not just to me, but to my family and communities that I care deeply about: LGBTQ, immigrants, people of color and other marginalized groups.

It is worth noting, however, that Reid does admit these posts came from her blog -- rather than alleging they are doctored images posted to Twitter -- with the caveat that they were added by nefarious hackers after she had the site shut down. It's unclear when the nefarious hackers would have hacked her site and added the controversial content, since it has been defunct for years and still is. More importantly, NBC could or would not specify exactly which posts Reid is claiming were doctored.

You're gonna love the new ru--

Oh, who am I kidding. She's a black woman. There are no rules.

Rules are for the allegedly "privileged" people. See, it's the privileged people who are restrained by rules at every turn, and the "marginalized" people who are free to live life to the full.
