The series tells the story of a woman who took action against Hunter Moore after nude photos of her daughter were leaked online
Netflix is back with another gripping documentary. The Most Hated Man on the Internet is a documentary series about one woman’s crusade against the self-proclaimed “King of Revenge Porn” and is set to premiere on Netflix. The series tells the story of a woman who took action against Hunter Moore, a self-proclaimed “business ruiner,” after nude photos of her daughter were leaked online.
In 2010, Hunter Moore created the Is Everyone Up? revenge porn website. which allowed users to post sexual and explicit photos of people online without their consent, often along with personal information such as their names and addresses. He refused to take photos when asked. The site operated for 16 months, during which Moore stated several times that he was protected by the same laws that protect Facebook. Moore also paid a hacker to break into victims’ email accounts and steal private photos to make public. The FBI launched an investigation into Moore in 2012 after receiving evidence from the mother of one of the victims. The site shut down in April 2012 and was sold to an anti-bullying group. In November 2015, Moore was sentenced to two years and six months in prison, paid a $2,000 fine and $145.70 in “redress”. He was released from prison in May 2017. The Netflix docuseries will focus more on the victims who fought to stop him, particularly a mother who embarked on a mission to take down Moore’s revenge porn empire after he violated her daughter’s privacy.

The series tells the story of a woman who took action against Hunter Moore, a self-proclaimed “business ruiner,” after nude photos of her daughter were leaked online. Moore rose to fame in the early 2010s when he founded IsAnyoneUp.com, a notorious “revenge porn” hub. The site published 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 word and moved online.
The series will feature exclusive interviews with several women and men who fought to have their images removed, law enforcement officers who handled the case and the Crusader’s mother, who fought to bring Moore down. It documents Moore’s retribution from the only force more frightening than an army of internet trolls – a mother protecting her daughter.
The series is executive produced by Alex Marengo, who has produced Netflix documentaries such as Bad Sport and Killer Ratings, starring Adam Hawkins. Rob Miller is directing, Vikki Miller is producing, with Alice Duffy serving as assistant producer and Nimira Velji as executive producer.
“I immediately saw that this story could make for an absolutely compelling series: a crusade for justice against all odds wrapped in a world of real and online depravity,” said executive producer Alex Marengo. “I’m so proud of our uniquely talented team who turned the lens on Hunter Moore and turned his victims into the ultimate winners by giving them their previously silenced voice. It’s incredibly exciting to know that this important story of our time will reach a worldwide audience when it premieres on Netflix,” he added.
