The posts have brought yet more attention to Reid’s blog, as last month, she claimed that a number of old posts containing homophobic sentiments were placed on her blog by hackers.
Reid hired a cybersecurity expert to investigate the matter and her attorney claimed the FBI opened its own probe into the alleged hacking. But Reid ultimately acknowledged that she could not prove that she had been hacked.
“Many of you have seen these blog posts circulating online and on social media. Many of them are homophobic, discriminatory and outright weird and hateful,” she said on the April 28 edition of her weekend program, “AM Joy.”
“I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things because they are completely alien to me,” Reid added. “But I can definitely understand based on things I have tweeted and have written in the past why some people don’t believe me.”
Supporters of Reid have concluded that she is a consistent target for the alt-Right media and bots to attack.
