Rob Monster sparred with journalist and hackers and even asked Jesus to rebuke the demons in the room.

Rob Monster, the CEO of domain registrar and web hosting company Epik, finally responded to the massive breach of his company on Thursday evening in a bizarre and chaotic video conference.

Earlier this week a press release from the hacking collective Anonymous announced that “a decade’s worth” of information about Epik was set to be released, including domain registrations, account credentials, and emails.

The data, released online as multiple torrents, contained detailed records revealing the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the individuals who registered some of the far-right’s most popular domains.

Epik has provided services to alternative social media sites such as Gab and Parler and even the neo-Nazi blog the Daily Stormer, which the company says it quickly booted. The company also hosted QAlerts, a website run by a militia member which was integral in spreading the QAnon conspiracy theory.
