Founder of site linked to mass shootings says he created 'a monster'

Founder of site linked to mass shootings says he created 'a monster'The creator of a far-right online message board connected to three mass shootings that killed dozens of people has described himself as “naive and ignorant”, likening the platform 8chan to Frankenstein’s monster, with no limit to its extremism. Fredrick Brennan, 25, who lives in the Philippines, said the free-wheeling web board he created in 2013 had become a hive of white supremacy, anonymous hate, and Neo-Nazism since he sold it to a fellow American, and said he felt a sense of guilt, “sometimes”. “If I could go back and not create 8chan at all, I probably would,” he told Reuters in an interview.
