When Gawker notified Brutsch to confront him, he pleaded with editor Adrian Chen not to expose him, citing fears he would lose his job and not be able to provide for his disabled wife. As Chen wrote on Gawker,
"If you are capable of being offended, Brutsch has almost certainly done something that would offend you, then did his best to rub your face in it. His specialty is distributing images of scantily-clad underage girls, but as Violentacrez he also issued an unending fountain of racism, porn, gore, misogyny, incest, and exotic abominations yet unnamed, all on the sprawling online community Reddit. At the time I called Brutsch, his latest project was moderating a new section of Reddit where users posted covert photos they had taken of women in public, usually close-ups of their asses or breasts, for a voyeuristic sexual thrill. It was called "Creepshots." Now Brutsch was the one feeling exposed and it didn't suit him very well."Within 24 hours of the exposure, Brutsch was fired from his position at a financial services company. And now he's complaining about lack of health insurance.
Honestly, though, the person I sorry for is his wife. But not just because of the unemployment and lack of health insurance. (However, according to the Gawker article linked above, his wife knew all about his perverted activities.)
Consequences, Mr. Brutsch...consequences. You're a big fat bully from Texas...and most likely a Mitt Romney supporter.
