Internet hackers peppered obscenities and foul language on a Web site promoting the gay independent film The Fluffer, which began its Los Angeles run on Friday. After a shutdown, a new temporary www.fluffer.com site has been posted. "These hackers are vigilante censors who are against free speech, which is a big theme in our movie," said codirector Wash West.
"The only good thing is that we have a high enough profile to draw attention to this kind of criminal activity," added codirector Richard Glatzer (Grief). "Filmmakers and other artists need to be aware that there are people out there who will stoop to this kind of mean-spirited vandalism, and therefore need to find ways to protect their work on the Internet."
