The Hacker Who Hijacked Matt Walsh’s Twitter Was Just ‘Bored’

Doomed, however, claims Walshs phone was compromised with the help of an insider.

In addition to his Twitter account, Walshs Google and Microsoft accounts appeared to have been compromised, granting Doomed unfettered access to the rightwing hosts private emails.

Several screenshots were provided as proof of the intrusion, including an apparent copy of Walshs W2 tax form, which lists his employer as Bentkey Services, LLC, the publisher of the Daily Wire. (Business records list Shapiro as the companys director.) Other images included a direct message on Twitter from Shapiro from 2017 emails between Walsh and the conservative commentator Steven Crowder, host of the Louder with Crowder podcast, dated March 2014 and a photo of Walsh holding up a paper dated November 2020apparently used to authenticate some type of accompanying message.

In a tweet directed at Shapiro, the hacker, who goes by the alias Doomed, wrote You Know What You Did, You Are A Closeted Homosexual And Hide Behind Being Jewish.

Other tweets included Joe Rogan Is A Pedophile, and I Can Confirm Andrew Tate Kidnapped And Rped Those Girls, a reference to the former British kickboxer and controversial misogynist arrested in Romania last year on allegations of human trafficking.

Walsh, who hosts a Daily Wire podcast named after himself, has been frequently characterized as an online troll. Hes previously described himself as a theocratic fascist, claims to believe anime is satanic, and pushed for state executions of doctors who provide minors with genderaffirming care.

Due to his efforts to foment attacks against the LGBTQ community online and in media, denigrating trans people in particular as groomers, Walsh drew criticism more recently over a series of resurfaced remarks in which he refers to girls as young as 16 as being the most fertile.

The intent was to make funny tweets, as Matt Walsh likes to trigger people, said Doomed, who declined to provide his real name. We caused no financial harm, threatened anyone, nor ruined anything. It was merely, he says, a few silly words on social media.

A pinned tweet on Walshs profile, which was suspended a few hours after the hacks began, read My Pronouns Are That/Na.

The hack was accomplished, Doomed says, using a technique known as SIM swapping.

The whole purpose of the attack, he says, was to stir up controversy and sow chaos on Twitter.

If that was all he was after, well, mission accomplished.

Walshs account first appeared compromised Tuesday night after a series of outofcharacter posts appeared on his feed.
