Silicon Valley, CA — The humor website9Gag.com is suing Reddit.com for libel and damages in the amount of $50,000,000. That’s a five with seven zeros attached to it.
Christopher Poole or “Moot” as he is known on 4chan.org, another type of image sharing website, says he’s disappointed at Reddit’s behavior. “It really disgusts me what Reddit is doing to 9Gag. They just need to stop this already. The internet is supposed to be a fun place where everyone is accepted. It’s not funny what the Reddit community is doing, it’s just not very nice at all.”
The owner of 9Gag, Paul Horner, said he thinks Reddit is just jealous. “It’s a well known fact that 95% of all Memes and funny images on the internet originate from 9Gag. Reddit doesn’t like this so they try and destroy our website. Maybe this $50 million lawsuit will shut them up.”
