The Internet was already buzzing about a controversial story being published by a prominent magazine. But we'll all have to wait to see it because some guy had a bad experience in the Big Apple. A hacker claims he hates NYC, but what he did about it makes no sense!

The hacker known online as ThreatKing took over the New York Magazine website and removed the feature cover of the 35 victims of alleged assaults by Bill Cosby. The cover was meant to take the world by storm, but when viewers went to check it out the entire page was down.

You would think this specific type of retaliation would be somehow linked to the Bill Cosby allegations, but it's not at all. It all has to do with a terrible trip to the Big Apple.

“I went to new York 2 months ago. It was really bad,” ThreatKing said through his Twitter account. “Someone pranked me. Everyone started laughing and (stuff). The first 10 hours being there. Some African-American tried to prank me with a fake hand gun.”
