Content purportedly pulled off Hunter Biden’s iPhone began appearing on the 4chan image board over the weekend. Denizens of the notorious online community claimed to have cracked the password the US president’s son used for his iCloud backup account. The authenticity of the salacious content has not yet been verified.
The first posts began to appear on Saturday evening. Soon thereafter, administrators on 4chan’s boards reportedly began to remove threads containing material from the alleged trove, including photos and videos.
In response, 4chan users created torrents of the data and have seeded them across the internet, according to Human Events editor Jack Posobiec, who was among the first to report on the existence of the leaks.
By Monday morning, critics of President Joe Biden had managed to get 4chan, Hunter Biden and the hashtag #BidenCrimeFamily trending on Twitter – with Democrats fighting back by claiming all the children of former President Donald Trump, except his youngest son Barron, were under federal investigation.
“Imagine the coverage if this was me?” tweeted Donald Trump Jr., sharing a video allegedly showing Hunter Biden talking about crack cocaine with a prostitute.
