Reddit Bans 944 Accounts Including The Ones Promoting Fake Clinton Porn Video

United States social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website Reddit has banned 944 accounts which includes the ones that were promoting a fake Hillary Clinton porn video.

One video, purporting to be a “leaked Hillary Clinton hotel sex tape” is reported to have been created by Russia’s Internet Research Agency.

It was posted on Reddit by a now-banned account called Rubinjer, whose posts gained more than 100,000 upvotes.

The same video was posted on PornHub five times and was viewed more than 250,000 times, according to NBC News.

A whistleblower, in October, from the Internet Research Agency, a former employee called Alan Baskaev, told Russia’s TV Rain that the troll farm had created the fake Hillary Clinton porn video.

The video had not been otherwise tied to a troll farm account until Reddit released usernames tied to the Russia-linked agency on Tuesday.

In an announcement to its users, Reddit said that 944 accounts, including Rubinjer, had been banned for “suspected Russian Internet Research Agency origin.”

This was the first time the firm had named any of the accounts, 71 of which had over 1,000 lifetime “upvotes” on the site.
